It seems Israel has a feminazi problem too. Today's award goes to a particularly moonbattish specimen. The report dates back a few years, but it's still teeth-grindingly stupid!
Hebrew University has just awarded a research prize to a graduate student's essay in which she claims that Israeli soldiers are "racists for not raping Arab women."
This is no joke–anyway, who could make this up? The graduate student is a woman named Tal Nitzan. Her anthropological essay has been published by the Hebrew University's "Shaine Center."
Nitzan writes that the "lack of IDF rapes of Palestinian women is designed to serve a political purpose." Since Israel fears the Palestinians demographically, IDF soldiers have been trained not to rape the women in order to avoid creating new Palestinians and little intifaders.
. . .
Thus, Israeli racism, which "de-humanizes" Palestinian women, suppresses Jewish male lust–which proves that Israeli soldiers are racist oppressors. As the only army that does not, apparently, rape, Nitzan fails to grapple with other reasons for this, including the possibility that Israeli soldiers are acting in an ethical and civilized manner.
According to Israeli Professor Steven Plaut who called this to my attention: "So essentially Nitzan is saying that the proof that Israeli soldiers are brutal oppressive stormtroopers is the fact that they do NOT mistreat and sexually abuse Palestinian women, not even the Palestinian terrorist women apprehended after trying to murder Jews."
There's more at the link.
So let me get this straight:
- Not raping someone because of their race, is racist;
- Racism suppresses lust - at least, Jewish lust.
You know, even the Ku Klux Klan or the Aryan Nations would have a problem swallowing those whoppers! I think Ms. Nitzan deserves a Golden Doofus Award for being a particularly egregious example of the breed . . . and Hebrew University deserves another for granting formal recognition to such moonbattish views.
