Orwellian: Israeli soldiers *not* raping Palestinian women is racist

“Head meets desk”

The Israelis just can’t win. Rape, and you’re a racist. Don’t rape, and it’s because you’re racist:

We didn’t include in our excerpt the following passage in which the failure of Israeli soldiers to rape Arab women is portrayed as an act of racism by a BDS activist.  Really, that has been an argument for years, and apparently started with a left-wing Israeli grad student complaining about how the IDF dehumanizes Palestinians.  It has morphed is to a standard trope (emphasis added):

“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.””

There’s much more at Legal Insurrection on the insane antisemitism of the “Boycott, Disinvestment, & Sanctions” crowd and their willing-dupe allies(1) in American academia.

    Don’t you just hate the old “Damned if you do; damned if you don’t” routine?

  2. Drew the Infidel says:

    Judging from the news footage on TV, the Israeli soldiers could be on to something.

  3. Tango says:

    …aren’t Muslim women who are “touched” by non-Muslim males routinely killed in so-called “honor killings?” Who would want that on their conscience?

  4. Zippy says:

    Ah liberal logic at it’s finest. They always manage to insert (distorted) logic to suit their purpose.
