How to 'humanize' 'Palestinian' women: Rape them!

No, that's not my idea. But it's the result of a study conducted by 'researcher' Tal Nitzan of Hebrew University's Shein Center for Social Studies and published in today's Makor Rishon (Hebrew only and not yet available on the web). According to A Mother in Israel,
Israeli soldiers refrain from raping Palestinian women in the "occupied territories" not because they are more humane. In fact the opposite is true, says researcher Tal Nitzan. Israeli soldiers don't rape the women because they have been taught to dehumanize Palestinian women.
And you thought I was making that up. Now, go read it all!

This is what you get when postmodernism is applied to the situation in the Middle East. In a sense the approach of Israel's implacable critics has always been postmodern, but now it becomes more formally so. Black means white, not raping is really bad because it serves a bad "metanarrative," moral equivalence is mandatory by "critical theory," and so on. Never, never think postmodernism in the academy is benign or just crazy nonsense that no one listens to. In Israel, especially, I don't think you can afford that illusion.

Prior to reading the article, I thought the reason for the lack of rape was Gods word in which he forbids rape, but after reading hte article, and much reflection, I realize that it is because of Gods word and his forbidding sex with nonhuman animals.
Kuddo's to the IDF for not having sex with swine.
