Now I've heard everything.  Apparently, Israel's latest crime
againt  Palestinians is NOT RAPING THEIR WOMEN. I wish I was
kidding, but I'm not. A graduate student at Hebrew University won
an award and publication from the Shaine Center for her paper
describing how the lack of rapes against Palestinian women by
soldiers is due to Zionist racism  (soldiers always rape, so why
aren't Jewish soldiers raping Palestinian women, the brilliant
author of this essay asks?  Duh, maybe because Jews don't raise
their sons to be rapists? She missed that.)

No.  Too simplistic.  Oh My.  What have we Jews done wrong now?!

Read and weep.  And to the Shaine Family: don't you think your
donation to Hebrew University could be better spent?

Hebrew University Awards Prize for "Research" Claiming
that Jewish Soldiers Do Not Rape Arab Women because Israelis are

 by Steven Plaut 

I wish I were making this up as some sort of a pre-Purim joke.
But it seems that the latest anti-Israel outrage coming out of
the Hebrew University in Jerusalem is its awarding a prize to a
graduate student for an essay in which the student claims that
Israel is abusing and oppressing Palestinians by not raping their
women. Really.

Had it not been awarded a prize by a panel of the Hebrew
University's distinguished professors, the whole matter could be
dismissed as just another idiotic essay by a moonbat grad
student, not something worthy of any attention being paid to it.
But according to news reports, the essay in question has now been
published by the Hebrew University's "Shaine Center," at the
enthusiastic recommendation of a Hebrew University professors'
committee headed by Dr. Zali Gurevitch. The latter is a
radical-leftist anthropologist who taught for several years at
Knox College in Galesburg, Illinois. Don't worry, I never heard
of it either. His web page is here:

Gurevich runs the Shaine Center, which awarded the prize. His
fellow perps in this atrocity are listed here:
RIPTION_LINK?department_no=01080   I wonder if the Shaine family
know what is being done with their contributions to the
university! The essay indicting Israeli soldiers for not raping
Palestinian women was the product of the crayon of a MA student
named Tal Nitzan. Tal is a she. Her main theme is that the "lack
of IDF rapes of Palestinian women is designed to serve a
political purpose lack of IDF rapes of Palestinian women is
designed to serve a political purpose." The "political purpose"
is that Israel fears the Palestinians demographically and so IDF
soldiers do not rape the women to avoid creating new Palestinians
and little intifaders. Here is Nitzan at her finest: "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." Israeli racism has resulted in
suppressed Jewish-male sexual desire for Palestinian women, just
another manifestation of Zionist racism. Since the absence of
rape of Arab women by Israeli soldiers has no parallel in any
other human army in wartime anytime in history, the only
conclusion must be that Jewish soldiers are far more racist and
intolerant than the others.Now Nitzan and her guru Gurevitch rule
out automatically all other alternative explanations for why
Israeli troops do not rape Arab women. The possibility that
Israeli troops are simply civilized humans is ruled out as an
imponderable. Ditto for the possibility that Jewish ethics serve
to deter such abuse of Arab women. Instead, Nitzan claims that
Arab women in Judea and Samaria are not raped by IDF soldiers
because the women are "de-humanized" in the soldiers' eyes. I
guess that means they are not rape worthy. You know, unlike
Shulamit Aloni, Yael Dayan, and Tamar Gozansky. How did Nitzan
reach these cosmic conclusions? By conducting "interviews" with
25 soldiers. That is what the Hebrew University has sunk to .
regarding 25 interviews as research comprising a MA thesis. I am
willing to bet a year's salary that not a single one of those
soldiers said that he was foregoing raping Arab women because he
was afraid it would spawn little Palestinian intifada terrorists.
So essentially Nitzan is saying that the proof that Israeli
soldiers are brutal oppressive stormtroopers is in the fact that
they do NOT mistreat and sexually abuse Palestinian women, not
even the Palestinian terrorist women apprehended after trying to
murder Jews. And as if this were not enough, let us note that not
a single one of the many radical feminist mini-organizations that
plague Israel had a single moo to utter about this obviously
"research" paper inflicted upon the world by the Hebrew
University. According to her own thesis logic, if little Tal
herself were to be raped by Hamas terrorists, I guess this would
pretty much prove that they are egalitarian and progressive
seekers of peace and justice. Makor Rishon, a rightwing Hebrew
weekly ( broke the story of this Hebrew
University "research" proving that Rape Refusal by Israeli
soldiers serves to prove how racist they are.


The Shaine Center for Research in the Social Sciences was
established in 1987 following a donation from the Shaine family,
USA. Its aim is to advance research in the social sciences.

The Head of the Department of Sociology and Anthropology is
responsible for the Center, working alongside an Academic

The Center's main purpose is to support research into a range of
phenomena in Israeli society. To that end the Center offers
financial support for research carried out in the Faculty for
Social Sciences. About two-thirds of the distributed funds go to
the Department of Sociology and Anthropology
