The Racist Israeli anti-Rapist

On any given day I never know what is going to leap out.

My wife has asked me how it is that I never seem to get writer’s block and my response is that when you cover the Arab-Israel conflict there is always, but always, something to write about.  Not a day goes by in which so much pure stupidity doesn’t come pouring out of my computer screen that I am not forced to write about it.

So, for example, this morning I was perusing the Elder of Ziyon’s site when I came across a link to this Times of Israel article by a young, ex-IDF soldier, Hen Mazzig, who is now doing pro-Israel outreach in the Pacific Northwest of the United States, which happens to be where I live.  He writes:

“To give you a taste of the viciousness of the BDS attacks, let me cite just a few of the many shocking experiences I have had. At a BDS event in Portland, a professor from a Seattle university told the assembled crowd that the Jews of Israel have no national rights and should be forced out of the country. When I asked, “Where do you want them to go?” she calmly answered, “I don’t care. I don’t care if they don’t have any place else to go. They should not be there.” When I responded that she was calling for ethnic cleansing, both she and her supporters denied it. And during a presentation in Seattle, I spoke about my longing for peace between Israel and the Palestinians. When I was done, a woman in her 60’s stood up and yelled at me, “You are worse than the Nazis. You are just like the Nazi youth!” A number of times I was repeatedly accused of being a killer, though I have never hurt anyone in my life. On other occasions, anti-Israel activists called me a rapist. The claims go beyond being absurd – in one case, a professor asked me if I knew how many Palestinians have been raped by IDF forces. I answered that as far as I knew, none. She triumphantly responded that I was right, because, she said, ‘You IDF soldiers don’t rape Palestinians because Israelis are so racist and disgusted by them that you won’t touch them.'”

I would like to suggest that it is not merely Israeli Jews who are so racist against Arabs that they won’t rape them, but diaspora Jews are equally racist and refuse to rape them, as well.

Y’know, the other day I was strolling down Market Street when I ran into my friend Shafiqah.  I’ve known Shafiqah since my days at San Francisco State University and when I saw her on the street she seemed a bit miffed.  I had not seen Shafiqah in quite awhile, because people sometimes have a tendency to come and go in this world, but I was a little surprised to see that she was irked with me.

I figured that maybe she was reading my writings!

But, no, that was too far-fetched.  So, she comes up to me and says, “Lumish, how come you never raped me?  What?  Are you so racist toward my people that the very idea of raping an Arab woman disgusts you?  Do you have such loathsomeness in your heart for me and my family and my people that you won’t rape a single one of us?”

Then she spit on me and walked away.

Nonetheless, what I recommend to my fellow Jews everywhere is to not rape people.

Don’t rape Eskimos.  Don’t rape Jehovah’s Witnesses.  Don’t rape Rastafarians.  Don’t rape Rosicrucians.  And particularly do not rape Arabs.  It may upset them, or some of their friends in places like the University of California, Berkeley, but you are under no moral obligation to rape anyone.

Every once in awhile you may feel that a pity-rape is in order so as to demonstrate your open-mindedness, liberality, and commitment to the multicultural ideal.  You may even come to think that your disinclination to rape, say, Mennonites – why not? – represents your racist ill-will toward Mennonites.  My suspicion, however, is that the great majority of Mennonites will not mind if you do not rape them, or their women, and they probably will not hold it against you.

In fact, I have never yet heard anyone complain about the general Jewish disinterest in raping Mennonite women.  Day after day, month after month, and year upon year, Jewish men fail to rape Mennonite women and somehow college professors throughout the country have said not a word concerning our obviously malignant racism toward Mennonites.

How is it that if we fail to rape Arabs we are castigated as racists and, yet, if we also fail to rape Mennonites we are not castigated as racist anti-Mennonites?  But, I guess the most pertinent question is, how is it that we are failing to keep up our end of the obligation to rape non-Jews?  Is it possible that the professor who spoke with Mr. Mazzig is correct and that the reason that Jews fail to rape either Arabs or Mennonites – or, say, the Easter Islander – is due to a flaw in our collective character?

Are the Jewish people such horrible human beings that we cannot even bring ourselves to rape our friends and neighbors?  Well, I am here to tell you that the answer to that question is “yes” and you should all be ashamed of yourselves!

I was raised to believe that Israel is a Light Unto the Nations or Light Upon the Nations – or that it somehow has something to do with lighting something – and now I can no longer believe it and must, instead, believe that the Jewish State of Israel is a vile and disgusting place filled with vile and disgusting Jews who are so busy (and selfishly) creating computer software and sending Natalie Portman’s out into the world that they cannot even bring themselves to show basic human decency by committing acts of non-volitional sex with non-Jews.

Or, wait!  Maybe it’s even worse than that.  Could it be that the great majority of Jews are actually anti-Semites because we fail to rape Jewish women, as well?

Oh, for G-d’s Sake, now I won’t sleep tonight!

  1. Michael,your article was hilarious.

    But I stopped laughing when I realised these people are deadly serious and remembered reading that IDF were racist for NOT raping, Arab women –

    A research paper that won a Hebrew University teachers’ committee prize finds that the lack of IDF rapes of Palestinian women is designed to serve a political purpose.
    “In the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, it can be seen that the lack of military rape merely strengthens the ethnic boundaries and clarifies the inter-ethnic differences – just as organized military rape would have done.”The paper further theorizes that Arab women in Judea and Samaria are not raped by IDF soldiers because the women are de-humanized in the soldiers’ eyes.
    http://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/News.aspx/124674#.Uli7BlO0IsZ

    Seems Jews can’t win. If our men went about raping non-Jewish women, we would be rightly condemned. For an Israel University to accept a paper attributing not-raping women to racism, rather than as an ethical stance based on Jewish principles, is beyond comprehension.

    • I like satire and I admire the Jewish sense of humour. I also know that muslims are told to and do emulate mohamed’s example and the high incidence of rapes in that cultural background has been widely documented.

      But this one – a HEBREW university honouring some Arab’s or (or self-hating Jew’s?) obvious wish (even if slightly disguised in pseudo academic writing) to get raped by Jewish soldiers, I must ask in the tone of Pat Cash: YOU CAN’T BE SEEEERIOUS !!!!???

      Surely not ! ?

      • Hi Rita, again, long time no see, but what a delight seeing you here…..

        I think you touched on a very significant problem. Rape as understood in separate ethical contexts has distinct cannonical values.
        Islam seems to contain clear notions of dominance and submissiveness. The one relative to its imperious supriority over other credes is well known, but what happens WITHIN Islam is of quite more serious concern . Gender stratification to the advantage of the male is seen in many Islamic manifestattions. When related OUTSIDE Islam the same cannonised subvisiveness gains even higher degrees. Dhimmis of the female kind are fair ( accent on “fair” ) game, based on a number of connonised norms, i.e. non Islamic and female.
        I wont delve into Christianity except for mentioning that there we see women elevated to revered status ( see at least Virgin Mary ) only to say that this a Judeo vestige.
        One important determinant, once again, in the absence of rape incidence among Jewish soldiers in the context we are discussing here is that Judaism is responsible for introducing the clear concept of high respect for the woman. Starting with the seminal (!!) concept of matrimonial lineage as exclusive in determining Mosaic authenticity and observed in all other phenomena of reverence for the woman in a vast variety of fundamental norms.

        Cultural-ethical causes arrive at consistent behaviour. One other example and basta for now: the high incidence of rape at Indians is realted to a stark social classification of casts, which allowes for degrading human stratification and respective considerations. The mere notion of the existence of declassed humans is a sufficient enticement for lack of respect, hence, rape.

        Jewish ethics do not allow to any degree the slightest notion of oppressive behaviour and/or a demeaning attitude toward ANY human. Since IDF is based on a Jewish human content, this is another fundamental cause for the absence of rape at IDF, regardless of the religion of the gender in discussion. Here we must introduce also the fact that some of the Arabs IDF deals with are not Muslim, so, once again, the Muslim psycological aversion is out.

  2. IN Sydney a few years ago, there were two notorious gang rape cases against young white Australian women. Both lots of perpetrators were Muslim.

    Do we conclude from this that Jewish men are racist because they have not been involved in these gang rapes?

    • It is utterly insane. It seems some people assumed that lots of IDF soldiers just want to be rapists except the reason they aren’t is that they’re racist. They are implying that all or most of the IDF are at least rapists in principle. Abhorrent hatred there. Sadly, in reality, is the fact that rape actually appears to be quite ok in a significant proportion of the Arab and Muslim world. Eg: women being blamed for their own rape in some countries etc.

    • Yes, Pam, that is apparently the conclusion that this professor would draw.

      Radio talk guy Dennis Praeger likes to say that it helps to have an advanced degree to put forth truly preposterous notions.

  3. Leon Poddebsky

    This case study is further evidence of :
    1. anti-Zionism is a symptom of psychosis.
    2. psychotics in particular are attracted to the dogmas and fantasies and hallucinations of anti-Zionism.
    3. anti-Zionism induces psychotic hallucinations.

  4. It’s a case of you’re damned if you do and damned if you don’t

  5. There’s a very good analysis by Prof. Steven Plaut of Tal Nitzan’s nonsensical piece of “research” – See: http://americandigest.org/mt-archives/tinfoil_brigade/not_raping_the.php
    Her so-called “scientific” conclusions are based on interviews with a mere 25 Israeli reserve soldiers, whose actual words are either twisted, or completely ignored by this sorry specimen of the Loony Left “academic” circles which are taking over even Israeli institutes of higher learning.
    One wonders whether George Orwell would have been laughing or weeping, to see how Doublethink has so completely taken hold of the Loony Left.

  6. One other inference comes to mind: “military” rape is common in conflict situations where occupation armies resort to rape. It happened all the time during European conflicts, even the Soviet army on its way to Berlin was well known for rape, but nowhere as regular and even encouraged by the military superior ranks on their soldiers as during the Japanese occupation of China during the WWII.The common thread here is the notion of OCCUPATION.
    The absence of rape among the Israeli soldiers upon Arab women in Judea and Samaria means that the IDF is NOT an army of occupation…………………….As simple as that !
    The psychological element cannot be a cause since we find in Israel quite a number of Jews and Arabs having consensual intimate relationships . There cannot be a case of psychological aversion .

    • Otto – I don’t think there are many Arab women having intimate relationships with Israeli men. They’d be murdered by their families if they dared. But plenty of Arab men having “relationships” with Jewish women.

      • Shimona, I would agree. Arab Muslim men are allowed to have sex with and marry Jewish women, so long as the children are brought up as Muslims, but Muslim women are not allowed to marry non-Muslim men, unless the men convert to Islam. tHowever, there wouldn’t be a problem of Arab Christians having relationships with Jews and this presumably must happen.

    • Otto, my friend, as much as I dislike saying this !!! You are 100% correct.

      My husband is ex-army and he has told me this on a number of occasions. I think the subject first arose when there was all that business with Abu Ghraib in Iraq. He said during times of war when people, especially men, are under severe stress they do things they would never do outside their normal life.

      So if you put 2 and 2 together you come up with the answer that the IDF are not an army of occupation or at war.

      Amen !!!

  7. Shirlee, I too was very impressed by what Otto said and it made perfect sense.
    “The absence of rape among the Israeli soldiers upon Arab women in Judea and Samaria means that the IDF is NOT an army of occupation…………………….As simple as that !”

    Clear and simple, in language that even I can understand. Brilliant, Otto!

  8. Shirlee and Pam, bothovya need someone to moderate you !! Because of your careless comments about me , now I am unable to fit even a knitted beamie on my oversized head !!!
    Speaking of creating a monster………………

    • Don’t worry Otto, I won’t make a habit of praising you, so relish the moment!

      • Pam ,
        if only you knew how florid with the relish of deserved plaudits I’ve been ……
        How else to explain my incorrigible selfconfidence some would wrongly call hubris ?!

  9. Shimona

    I would agree with you, particulartly based on most studies on HALF the issue of Jewish-Arab relationship in Israel – of the intimate nature, of course, but agree shall only half.
    An org., Yad l’Achim, is heavily involved in addressing strictly – it seems – the Jewish WOMAN – Arab men situations and they seem to have quite a problem on their hands, some 100 cases reported monthly, both in Israel proper and Judea/Samaria. Other organisations in Israel also are involved in the same as far as having vigillante groups roaming Beersheva and Haifa etc.
    It is hard to find orgs. which “cater” for the the other alternative simply because from the Jewish point of view the loss of a Jewish woman is chalachically far more precious than the passing of a Jewish man onto the “other side”. Also, I only assume, the entire exercise of interfering with a man’s “hormonal” impulses is far more troublesome. Oposition is likely to be a lot more difficult to deal with – I could easily agree that very few Israelis want to be involved with one of their own blokes bent on the ” ma pitom !!!” syndromme -. Practically, when you see two Israelis conversing with each other you don’t ask ” What are you talking about !?” but ” What are you arguing about !!!!?” ( noticed more exclamation marks ? ). But I am digressing and that in itself is a very Jewish trait, so I am still onto the “same:” subject……….

  10. Since I opened this can of worms, rats, mad dogs and soldiers, I will add the compulsory cases of African armies all involved in massive rape, something happening as we speak, but I beg not to dwell any further on this repulsive item. ( unless necessary )

  11. I wonder if this Jewish woman was a member of the Australian Jewish Democratic Society. Most of their members have a great disdain for mainstream Jews, but elevate Muslims and would most likely believe any ridiculous anti-Israel story that they are told, despite the use of blood libels and other calumnies against Jews/Israel being well known. These libels are often repeated as truth by some on the progressive side, especially certain academics.

    I would be interested to know who the Canadian academic is.

    • Ah…maybe I need to know more about the AJDS and what their agenda is…not good, by the sound of it. She certainly was hostile to Israel, as I could see, yet her friends were J
      ews. It seems I have a lot to learn…

      • PG, I suggest you change your unimpressive style. Farcical and silly ambiguities, once detected, deem the person in the very middle badly compromised.
        Let’s see where you went really bad:
        – wanna find out about AJDC look it up under the already explained meaning by Pam, that’s in case you want us to believe that you are NOT one of them AJDS shlemils ( look up also shlemil) and do not pretend surprise cum ignorance.
        – insisting that “the woman” is for real in a farcical tale and engrossing the ridicule by accentuating that her friend was Jewish, all “certainties” not at all verifiable, is another puerile attempt at poluting this site with cheap trolling.

        • Otto, let it go please. Pam and I both know who PG is and where she is coming from.I sorted it all out earlier.
          People outside of the Jewish Community find it very hard to come to terms with our ‘enemy within’
          Not that I find it easy really. I sent her the link the article I wrote a few months back about them.

    AJDS reminds me of the communists “of Jewish background”, particularly those of the Stalinist era. While their non-Jewish co-ideologues were persecuting Jews, the communist Jews were vilifying and denouncing and betraying the Jewish People.
    The behaviour of “The New Israel Fund” also reminds me of that shameful era.

    • Leon
      let’s refresh memories and relate to current stuff.
      Russian Jewry associated with the left, the mensheviks – who also had a number of Jews – and the bolsheviks abandoned any Jewish argument except when the Bolshevik Soviet Government, Lenin in his work, addressed the “Nationalities Problem”.
      The Bund was specifically and very ostensively a Jewish movement, as we know , however anti Zionist.. This covers very succintly the Russian Jewish aspects at the respective time.

      The Zionist “problem” was treated by Stalin as soon as he realised that Soviet Union lost any chance of being involved in the new Jewish State ( after a very short inetrlude of welcoming the creation of Israel; remember Golda Meir’s visit in Moscow and the huge reception she received at the Great Synagogue ) in a concrete way and was largely given as a “:task” to a large number of Soviet communist Jews . The anti Zionist propaganda literature, attacking directly every aspect of the new State, the political commentary in the Soviet media, the “satirical” approach – see the Kukrinitzkies, generally “Krokodil” -, those were all means of denying any legitimacy of the Jewish identity, whether as a State or as a national minority in the Soviet Union.

      NIF is a completely distinct animal from the above Soviet “model”.
      NIF claims to promote Zionism, to be aligned to a progressive and positive, constructive ideology supportive of Israel’s Declaration of Independence – their annoying mantra -. Many NIF members – not that NIF is a large group in Australia at all – have penetrated strata of communal leadership and ,in ways subtle or not, are promoting a so called Zionist philosophy, while, quite ostensively, suporting large numbers of NGO determined to undermine the Jewish State.
      The Soviet communist Jews involved in anti Zionist propaganda and ideology were openly, honestly anti Zionist whereas NIF pretends to be “genuinely” Zionist.
      Huge distinction !!! It requires a completely different strategy in dealing with the NIF serious problem.

      • Leon Poddebsky

        Thank you, Otto.
        It is so amazing that in an era when Israel is still under mortal threat a number of Jews, especially in the USA, devote so much time, energy and bile in defaming Israel and preening their “humanitarianism” on behalf of Israel’s enemies such as the “Palestinians” and their NGO and other collaborators; and they rationalise these enemies’ criminal behaviour while totally ignoring the fact that Israel is daily faced with moral and security dilemmas that no other nation faces.
        This is not a time for Jews to be “evenhanded” or “unbiased”.
        Objectivity or the attempt to achieve it is commendable in scientific research, historical investigation, journalistic reportage etc; but if you have a cause, then pursue it singlemindedly. Imagine a defence lawyer being unbiased or objective? Or a prosecuting attorney defending the accused?Height of absurdity.
        Now, we know that, objectively, Israel’s case is iron-clad and its conduct generally at a high moral level; and yet we find some Jews constantly sniping away as though Israel’s security situation is like Switzerland’s.
        The Jewish People has been forced into an adversarial situation, and we should behave like a prosecuting attorney with respect to our enemies, and like a defence attorney with respect to Israel- no “evenhandedness.” Are our enemies evenhanded?

        The above might sound like a lecture, but it’s not meant to be one.
        It’s just an expression of astonishment that some of our people are so blind or naive.

  13. Leon

    your spirit is admirable, but I am sure that you will agree with me that you would not be “astonished”, but , judging by your toughness and realistic expression, you’d be rather clearly disgusted with the same phenomena you so well outlined. And I am with you 100%.
