All-Enforced Silence Covered Up Rape


What would have been the reaction of the world had the news of a cross-culture rape been kept silenced from the media in a deliberate cover-up of the horrific act in Tel Aviv. This megalopolis in Israel is home to many cultures with the two largest ethnic communities belonging to secular and religious Jews and secular and religious Arab Muslims and Christians. What will be the reaction now that the authorities quietly released the news with no attempt to notify the media or to bother the government beyond the fact that they know the victim was a mentally challenged twenty-year-old woman from Tel Aviv. The police have two of her rapists and are seeking the third. One of the rapists resides in Tel Aviv and the other two live beyond the Green Line in Judea and Samaria. As evidence the police have a video record of the entire event taken by one of the rapists. It appears the crime was committed two weeks earlier thus the release being delayed as the authorities insisted on a gag-order delaying the release until it was old news and more likely to be ignored. Perhaps they feared violent reaction had the news of this cross-culture rape by three men and on a mentally disadvantaged woman who not only suffered a gang-rape but was also berated throughout the entirety of the ordeal by nationalistic slurs and ethnic accusations and abuses. This crime had a dual nature which consisted of far more than the physical and sexual abuses but also taunting by racial and nationalistic slurs of a demeaning nature abusing her on every possible nature. This was a despicable and revolting act and the perpetrators cannot be sufficiently punished but that will be decided in a court of law and we can only pray that justice will be served in the most severe nature allowed under sentencing law as this was a truly horrifying abuse of a defenseless mentally-challenged individual.


There should also be questions as to why the gag-order was procured and the news of this crime was delayed sufficiently long enough to make it into not just yesterday’s news but so dated so as to minimize any feel of urgency to report on this racial and nationalistic taunt-filled rape of one of the most vulnerable, a mentally-challenged young woman, a woman who despite being twenty in years was far more innocent in her mind making what happened all the more horrific. Where was the coverage even after the report was allowed to be made public. One has to wonder what would have been the reaction had the positions been reversed and the woman and her rapists been opposites and the woman instead of being a Jewess had been an Arab woman and instead of three Arab men the rapists had been Jews? We will hopefully never know as it is highly unlikely that Jewish men would commit such a crime.


IDF Crest Insignia


We know that the IDF soldiers are known for their lack of social crimes such as sexual abuse and rape charges are only noteworthy by their absence. This is considered such an anomaly in cases of military “occupations” as the United Nations had found to its disgrace. In virtually every place where troops from almost any nation are deployed in distressed situations such as famine from drought or peacekeeping that there have been forced sexual exploitations which had become so common that a convened investigatory inspectors found that virtually every deployment of United Nations forces resulted in rapes and forced sexual favors, even sex with children and food for sex in areas suffering from famine where the food provided to relieve distressed hunger the food is used to gain sexual favors. The investigation proved so distressful that the report was required to be made in a closed session. One report from another investigation from a deployment of United Nations troops in central Africa where the perpetrators were caught and held for trial in Africa and beyond and beyond (see videos below and please click through as the videos are revealing). As the BBC reported ten peacekeeping missions were subject to allegations of sexual misconduct in 2015.




The United Nations scandals prove that sexual abuse against natives by foreign troops is so universal and it matters little which nations’ troops are deployed or even where there are multiple nations involved in a deployment. It should be noted that IDF troops have never been deployed by the United Nations and in all the relief missions and other operations and throughout their deployments beyond the Green Line in Judea and Samaria have all been in order and without any suspicions of sexual misconduct. This good conduct has not gone unpunished by leftist accusations as was made obvious by a research paper which won a Hebrew University teachers’ committee prize. The paper written by doctoral candidate Tal Nitzan was based on the theory that the lack of IDF rapes of Palestinian women is designed to serve a political purpose. In part the paper claims, “the lack of organized military rape is an alternate way of realizing political goals.” And goes on to point out that, “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.” In simple terms the fact that the IDF does not rape Palestinian women is just as horrible as if they had raped Palestinian women, damned if you do and damned if you don’t.


The most ludicrous argument was that the IDF soldiers are not raping the Arab women such that this lack dehumanizes the Arab women and reinforces the cultural and ethnic differences which are all part of the Israeli plan to make the Arabs into lesser entities and less human. What is amazing is that it never occurred to Tal Nitzan that the IDF soldiers do not rape or sexually harass Arab women might be due to the low incidence of rape in the Israeli and Jewish culture at large. Simply stated, Jews, especially religious Jews, tend not to be rapists and their culture makes being so perverted as so abhorrent that such acts are outside consideration. The reason that IDF soldiers do not rape Arab women is the same reason that IDF soldiers do not rape Jewish and Arab and other women inside Israel and the same social reverence for human beings such that they honor and respect each individual thus rape and sexual misconduct simply never enters into the thought patterns thus is not a possibility. Only in the wildest hallucinations of leftist elites is the fact that there are no incidents of IDF rape is due to a social disgust and racial revulsion because it is not possible for the IDF, the symbol of fascist imperial colonialism superiority complex, to be refraining from sexual misconduct including but not limited to rape because the IDF soldier is simply honorable and moral and would no sooner rape an Arab woman or a Haitian woman, or a Philippine woman or a Nepalese woman or Japanese woman, or an Armenian woman, or an Argentine woman, or a Rwandan woman, or a Turkish woman, or Greek woman, or a Kosovar woman, or an Indian woman or a Kenyan woman, or Egyptian woman, or any woman anywhere the IDF soldiers have operated.



IDF Around the World
And Through the Years


We can only guess that both the teachers who gave the award and its author, Tal Nitzan, went a little overboard in their efforts to find fault with the IDF despite their actually finding, what for too many other nations an anomaly, that the IDF soldier is moral, self-disciplined, follows orders as well as rules of conduct, and had a stellar record because the soldiers themselves are outstanding individuals who are well trained and operate with the reminder that they represent Israel, an outstanding nation which holds them as their soldiers to a very high standard of excellence. It is really sad that the researcher and the teachers judging the paper were so blinded by their presupposed position that the IDF had to be imperfect and they placed their own overheated suppositions instead of cold observations with reasoned interpretation of fact. The same is true for the vast majority of Israelis as well which is why the victim was demeaned and dehumanized by her assailants. The real question was who were the authorities protecting by withholding the information of this crime until it became old news and would be ignored by the media.

Islam and the Future of Representative Governance


There have been far too many public figures drinking so much of the Islamic propaganda Kool-Aid that there are those who have come to honestly believe that Islam is peace and compatible with representative democratic republic governance. They honestly believe that the world’s majority of the one and one-third Billion Muslims want to coexist with everybody else working to better the world through mutual respect and tranquility without any threats to our way of life. Even a cursory examination of the realities of the Quran, the two faces, the strange manner in which it is compiled with the shortest verse first and with them slowly ascending in size with the largest verse last so that the youth can work at their own pace learning by rote the shortest leaving the really long verses last and not compiled by date or subject. We wrote a short and concise description of the two faces, the early ones from Mecca and the later verses from Medina and the mood, situation and outlook which affected Mohammad’s outlook and authority in our article Which Quran, Mecca or Medina? The description touches on the basics but if visits are any indication, then it does fulfill that challenge. Should Islam actually achieve their goal of world conquest and unifying all Islam under one sole, unique and declared pure Quranic Code and the Earth’s population all under one Supreme Imam under Sharia, no elections, only religious courts and no varying religions with one religion, one result and no freedom as only submission to Allah through Allah’s representatives chosen by a council of elder Imams whose decisions are not subject to doubts or questions. Everyone will know and understand the Five Pillars of Islam It will be ‘What part of Submission do you not understand?’



Five Pillars of Islam


The most basic difference between the two is where Western governance allows for multiple choices, occasionally more than the two main parties though infrequently, Islam would make such a choice either a meaningless decision the Imam would instruct the congregants for whom to vote or the candidates would have been chosen by the clerical hierarchy thus making any vote meaningless; but even this situation would seldom arise as there would be no government as is understood in the Western World. In Islam the rules of law and the punishments are prescribed by the Quran and no other can exist except as to do as the clerics define actions on the Sharia.


In an Quranic governance any elected governance would be simply adding a layer of people who have been vetted by the real power, the leading Islamic clerics such that any candidate who is permitted to seek such power must be vetted by the leading clerics such that the only candidates in any election have already proven themselves to be truly an extension of the religious order and as any law is passed by the governance must then be vetted for its final form by an assembly of experts whose power is absolute such that any candidate permitted to run for office in the so-called, open and free elections are simply a rubber stamp extension of the clerical regime which is selected and not elected and where the true power lied in reality and thus one would be under a clerical dictatorial governance and no truly elected governance can exist under Sharia, the basic legal structure of any governance in a true Islamic State.


Within Islam there is no provision for any State or governance outside of the Sharia. Many in the Western World refer to Sharia as Sharia Law because they see Sharia as a set of man-made religious codices which are to be interpreted such that they fit within the legal framework of the State while there is no such need for such an interpretation in an Islamic State as Sharia is also the legal code for the State and the religion becomes the State. Judaism and originally Christianity had recognition for a State governance which may disagree with religious text; the most glaring example is in the case of women choosing whether or not she desires to have a child and her avenues permitted by law for her to choose from in this area. The original answer to the question posed to Jesus over which tax should be considered as legal for the State to take as versus what religious demands which were man-made institution of taxation when his reply was said to have been, “To Caesar what is Caesar’s and to Hashem what is Hashem’s” noting that one has obligations to the state just as he has obligations to Hashem and one is obliged to keep the laws of man up until they break the laws of Hashem as put forth in the Commandments in Torah, which happened all too often as if the States were making laws directly the converse of Halacha and Jewish Laws. Examples of such which have started once again in Europe and even the United States are laws against circumcision calling it a mutilation of genitalia; Shechita, the laws of Kashrut; laws against teaching Torah; and other such laws which are all too often passed in order to force all Jews to become criminal in their daily behavior. Islam under Sharia goes one step further in that it denotes those worthy of such to be Dhimmi which is a class of lower citizenry who are not permitted to be before the courts except as a defendant who is not even given the right to speak before the court in their own defense even before sentencing, and the alternative of conversion or death. Even should one be classified as a Dhimmi and pay the Jizya, a special and often onerous tax non-Muslims must pay, there will come that day when such status is revoked and then it becomes convert or death or often both where you convert and then are summarily executed for your sins against Allah while a Dhimmi. As is obvious from the last section, Sharia is a complete governing set of rules which all followers of Islam are instructed to spread throughout the lands and defined lands which must become Islamic as any land where any Muslim’s foot, does not require both feet, has graced with its treading. For those unfamiliar with some of the degradations and dehumanization even of their own progeny, here is a quote from a recent statement made by Palestinian Authority Minister of Women’s Affairs, Haifa Al-Agha, who stated, “Minister of Women’s Affairs Haifa Al-Agha…noted the Palestinian woman’s uniqueness, which differentiates her from the women of the world, as she receives the news of her son’s martyrdom with cries of joy.” This was how she was quoted in Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, the PA official newspaper as translated by Palestinian Media Watch (PMW) and reported in Arutz Sheva thankfully as this made it more easily noted without viewing the dozens of PMW articles released each day (we reserve reading those on a slow news day along with CAMERA and MEMRI).


Islam will become triumphant even where there exist Constitutions or complete bodies of law given sufficient time. In any democracy or republic where the will of the people is used to elect their representatives or directly make the laws, the Muslims will be patient, if we are lucky, and simply bide their time meanwhile bringing in relatives and having large families and intermarrying which under Sharia any person who marries a Muslim the children must be raised under Islam and become good little Muslims. Muslims will ignore the laws of the land and take more than one wife, often a non-Muslim so as to deplete the number of women available to have children in other or no religious upbringing, and once back in their Muslim neighborhoods there is no law of the State, there is only Sharia. Once the woman is brought to meet the family they will never see the outside world again without great amounts of planning and sheer luck (for a gripping story of one woman’s struggle to reach what she would have called humanity as she had married a charming Muslim man and went to meet his family in Afghanistan and then the horrors began An American Bride in Kabul: A Memoir by Professor Phyllis Chesler and an excellent book to read and take a taste of a world many of us do not believe can exist in the modern world.) Many people in the Western society have absolutely no idea of exactly what Sharia is. They mistakenly and at their own peril believe it is all about religion and can exist within a governance and not be in conflict and believed by its adherents to supercede the laws of the land and that could not be further from the truth. The truths are viciously and nerve-gratingly the opposite of all you have known.


To test that last thought, the fact that the Muslims will set up a mini-state under Sharia and completely ignore the laws of the land in which they reside, all one need do is talk to people you know or can get an introduction to meet who take commuter light rail, buses or other above ground mass transportation what it is like as they pass through an almost completely and strictly Islamic area of the city where the Sharia is the law of the land. These unfortunates get to experience something akin to Professor Chesler got to feel the entire twenty-thousand-ton load of oppressions, degradations, subjugations and generally dehumanizing treatment which is why we suggest her book as after reading that and perhaps then following her editorial works one can get a taste, a glimpse behind the curtain. There are other memoirs written by people who got to witness the world beyond Islam and tell of their harrowing escapes and the complete awe and gratitude they have for the lives we all take pretty much for granted, there are two more books we recommend;


Infidel by Ayaan Hirsi Ali

Because They Hate by Brigitte Gabriel
