Moshe Katsav: How Israel Treats Rapists (Even Presidents) v. How Muslims Treat Rape Victims

By Debbie Schlussel

I wasn’t going to write about Moshe Katsav, the former Israeli President who was sentenced to seven years in prison for rape.  To me, it’s not news.  In fact, it’s only news because he is Jewish and he led the Jewish State.  But so many anti-Semites and interested readers have asked for my take, and I think it’s important to note a few things, in addition to the fact that President is a figurehead position in Israel, without much power.

How Israelis and Jews Treat Rapists . . .

Former Israeli President Moshe Katsav

How Muslims Treat Rape Victims . . .

Muslim Mid-East leaders and average Muslim Joes (or Youssefs, er . . . Mohammeds) on the Arab Street rape women on a regular basis.  And they are neither tried nor convicted nor sent to prison by their own governments. . . unlike Katsav and any other person who commits rape in Israel. But we NEVER read about it in the NYTimes and on the (self-hating Jew) Drudge Report because they couldn’t care less when a Muslim man rapes a woman. Happens every minute of the day, but it’s accepted, covered up, and the victim is the “criminal” in Islam. We know how women are treated in every Mid-East country other than Israel: they are property, chattel, baby factories, rape toys with no rights.

There’s a reason in Israel women don’t have to walk around with sheets over their heads and only their eye slits showing. On average, Jewish men can control themselves. They are civilized and humane. They aren’t violent animals who rape women at will, after hearing them called “uncovered meat” in sermons. They don’t enter a family’s home at night while they are sleeping on a religious holiday and stab them to death, beheading a few-months-old baby. And the minuscule few that do are tried, convicted, and sent to jail for the crime. In Muslim nations, they are heroes for raping and the raped woman is stoned to death by her father, brother, and uncle. But, hey, the perpetrating animals are not Jewish and not from Israel, so Drudge and the New York Times couldn’t care less.

You simply never hear about rape trials for men in the Muslim Mid-East. In fact, the only “rape” I ever heard of was when a Black servant’s hand accidentally brushed against one of his Saudi Arabian master’s many wives’ hands while he was serving the food. After that, his head was severed in the Kingdom’s Chop-Chop Square as a reminder to Black slaves not to have accidents, while Saudi Kings, royals, and sheikhs can kidnap and enslave any woman they want for their personal sex slave harem. They’ll never be accused, go to trial, be convicted, and go to jail like Katsav. Never.

So what’s the fuss over? That Israel has a justice system? That Israel respects women as humans? That a man who was accused of rape in Israel had a fair trial–extinct everywhere else in the Mid-East, and was found guilty by a jury of his peers, not a star chamber of Muslim imams and monarchs? That he was then sent to prison for rape, which happens in Israel but almost never anywhere in the 22 Muslim states surrounding it?

Also, Moshe Katsav is a Sephardic Jew. Sephardic Jews are, in general, Jews from Arab lands and Asia, though Sepharad means Spain. The Arabs and the Muslims always like to claim that Israel treats Sephardim bad (though not half as bad as the Arabs treated them), so they love this story, b/c they can say, ya see! . . . . while also laughing that Israel looks bad because a former figurehead leader was found guilty of rape, something you’ll never see any Muslim leader ever even accused of, lest the victim be found in pieces the next day, with her tongue and clitoris (if she still had one) sent to her family in a box. That’s how they roll there.

Katsav was born in Yazd, Iran, and I guarantee you, he would never have been given the opportunity to be President of Iran, let alone given the opportunity of even a trial were he accused there. He’d be instantly beheaded. Or, since the rape was against a Jewish woman, the Iranians might even give him a pass since Jewish life isn’t considered human, whether male or female. I also guarantee you that not a single Iranian Jew still there today . . . or in Yemen or in Egypt would have a trial for anything, including the seizure of their homes. The few remaining Iranian Jews, today, live under house arrest, not for rape, but simply because they are Jews. Even if they had a trial, it would be a show trial, and they’d be railroaded.

And while we are on the subject of rape in the Middle East, please note that many Sephardic Jewish families in Muslim lands were forced to marry their daughters off in their early teens. They did this because, otherwise, Muslim men would rape them (and sometimes, they raped them anyway) and ruin their lives. Not a single one of those Muslim men was ever tried for the rape. There were also never trials for the million Jews kicked out of Muslim lands whose homes were seized, property taken, and they left to save their lives from ongoing Muslim pogroms, televised hangings, etc.

So when I compare all this to what happened to Moshe Katsav, I see a civilized Western country that doesn’t condone violence, that has a fair and open legal system, that is unlike the entire mass of 1.8 billion savages surrounding them and invading Western culture.

Which society would you prefer . . . the one where a country’s President was accused of rape and went to jail for it, or the one where women are like yesterday’s shawarmeh, consumed at will, then thrown out like yesterday’s garbage without a second thought, except to plan the honor killing?

One is a civilization. The rest are the zoo.

Jews and Westerners say not to rapists and send them to prison.  Muslims say, “Women . . . the other halal meat.”

Debbie your point is well taken, about contrasting the “justice” in Muslim lands with that of Israel. I know that Katzav’s guilt or innocence is not the point of your post. However for the sake of those reading here who may not know the details, there is every reason to believe that Katzav was falsely accused and that his political enemies are behind the ruse. The rape “victim” actively petitioned to keep her job and follow him around from post to post even after her supposed rape. What rape victim does that? She also went willingly with him to a hotel room AFTER the supposed rape, again, what victim does that? Lastly, she took her sweet time bringing charges — years, in fact. It’s all very suspicious. I hate rapists with a passion but I don’t think Katsav is guilty.

Sounds like Anita Hill w/ Clarence Thomas, but unlike Paula Jones or Juanita Broderick w/ BJ Clinton

Infidel Pride on March 23, 2011 at 1:43 pm

    My thought EXACTLY as I read Batyah’s post. Anita Hill did EXACTLY that, as well as continuing to invite Clarence Thomas to speak at her law school in Oklahoma, where she would insist on picking him up at the airport, driving him around, etc. I never believed her at the time, and I think it’s disgusting that she is still heralded as a feminist heroine for lying under oath to discredit Clarence Thomas. She never said Thomas raped her, but she sure accused him of everything but!

A couple of pretentious douches showing their ‘knowledge’…

Yes, Iranian Jews – as Egyptians, Lebanese, Syrians, Yemenis, Iraqis and other native Middle Eastern/Asian Jews – are not Sephardic. Just like Russians, Polish and Lithuanians aren’t Ashkenazis.

Big difference…

The points here are:
Why only this post is tagged as ‘Sephardic Jew’?

Why is Debbie using a notorious fake trial and an abomination and pervertion of Justice like this as a sign of superior morality by Israel and the Jews?

A man is cowardly being massacred by the leftist Israeli media and Justice is not being served, but Debbie is still using this crap in her crusade to prove our moral superiority over Muslims…
This is beyond any debate, and only a few leftist nutjobs would disagree. But this trial proves nothing. In fact, it only proves that the Israeli Justice System is Israel’s biggest problem. It is undemocratic, partial, unfair and politicized.

Show me ONE politician member of the leftist establishment being held accountable for any of his crimes……….

As another one said, leftist journalists and professors raped a bunch students….. show me what happened to them.
Israel’s Judiciary is a joke! We’re no better than South Americans or even Arabs in this particular case.

    Jamanta, you are an idiot. You don’t know the facts, but has all the stupidity to write a long piece of something you have no knowledge of. Our Judicial system is totally oblivious to the political inclination to vilains.
    One left minister took his life because he was accused of corruption, another member of the Mapai party, at the time the ruling party was sent to many years in prison because of manipulating money, not into his pocket but into the party’s account. I could give you more, but I think you are not open minded enough to understand.

HA! If your knowledge of Judaism is anything like your knowledge of Islam, it’s really in your best interests to sign off D & B…

Everything you’ve presented has been irrelevant, uninformed and childish to say the least.

Try the Huff Po, I think it would be much more to your suiting.

I am actually sickened by this article. I’m Muslim but brought up in the uk with an Iraqi father & English mother. I travel lots to the middle east for work. What you write on your post is total crap.

Muslims actually regard their wives, daughters etc with high regard. They are well respected & certainly not raped everyday. Go visit Qatar, UAE, Iraq, Lebanon, Jordan, Iran, Oman. I’ve been to all those places, and it’s totally the opposite to what you make it out to be. In fact I hear of more rape cases in the uk, mainly due to alcohol.

Also, Jews are snot unwelcome over there, including in Iran. The issue is with Israelis, not Jewish people. All 3 religions used to live in perfect harmony until Israel was created. At the end of the day, we all believe in the same God, who really cares about the whether Jesus was the son of God or a prophet?!!

So before you write such insulting & factually incorrect garble, do some proper research because writing that stuff only creates hatred between Jews & Muslims. Unless that is your intention?

I can’t believe this article. I’m a Muslim, born & live in England with an arabic father & English mother. I travel to the middle east all the time: Qatar, UAE, Oman, Jordan, Lebanon, Kuwait, mainly & what you write about Arabs raping women constantly is utter garbage.

Yes there are cases of rape, so don’t use that as a comeback. But rape, unfortunately, happens all over the world. I hear of more rapes happening in the West. But that’s besides the point. My point is women ARE highly respected in the Middle East. If you had written about some of the African countries, then ok, as women there truly are sex slaves to their husbands & whoever else & are brutally tortured.

But women are well respected in the middle east. They are not made to wear the veil, in most cases. None of my relatives do, out of their own choice & speaking to people in the middle east, they wear them out of their own choice.

Also, Jews are not hated. All 3 religions used to live in perfect harmony, that is until Israel was created. The problem for Arabs is Israel itself, not Jews, so don’t mix the two up. Even in Iran, the Jewish community is highly regarded by the President himself! Just look at the Youtube clips of him meeting to present awards to senior Iranian Rabbis.

All 3 religions believe in the same God, so should we really care whether Jesus is the son of God, or a prophet?

Please do proper research before you write such hideous & untruthful garbage as all you are doing is helping to create hatred between Jews & Muslims. Unless that is your intention, then you are doing a remarkable job at it!

Hussein on March 30, 2011 at 4:57 pm

The article is completely a lie and propaganda against Muslims. May Allah guide these wayward souls. I shudder at the thought of what will happen to these people when they die and appear before Allah for judgement. They will really regret everything but they will never get a chance to come to back to this world again to make amends.

Asim Mahmood on September 9, 2011 at 8:03 am

You’re such a big liar…be objective and tell the truth if you respect your self.

Walid on January 31, 2013 at 5:11 am

I’m wondering what is the benefit of lying against Muslims!
