[ Editor’s Note: Ninety percent of rape cases ending up with no prosecutions screams “rape is OK in the Promised Land”. This was quite a Monday morning surprise.

My first question is how this could have stayed out of the news for so long. With activism running deep in Hebrew DNA, I am perplexed that the women have not taken this public action sooner, unless media control has something to do with keeping it quiet, heaven forbid.

I already smell a whiff of male chauvinism with Bibi rejecting the current proposal for an official commission to dig out who has been blocking the prosecutions, and why. My first guess is that a lot of higher ups have been on the “charge list” and had a vested interest in dead-ending the investigations.

Unfortunately 2000 protesters is not enough for a city the size of Tel Aviv, but maybe this protest will light a fire, the badly needed political kind. VT is with the girls all the way on this one. We will be digging around for the back storyJim W. Dean ]

Thousands have rallied in Tel Aviv to protest violence against women in Israel, a week after Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu rejected a Knesset proposal to establish a parliamentary commission of inquiry on the issue.

Some 2,000 protesters took to the streets in Tel Aviv to mark the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women, chanting “We won’t be silent anymore,” “No means no,” and “We are not transparent – women make revolutions.”

The participants called on authorities in Tel Aviv to take action to halt the murder and abuse of women in Israel.

“We call for an end to the reality in which more and more women are raising their voices, but the authorities refuse to listen,” Miriam Scheller, director of the Tel Aviv Assistance Center, said at the rally.

Scheller said activists will keep up the fight against “a reality,” which has seen nine out of 10 rape cases in Israel being closed without any indictment, “a reality in which they talk about security, but that doesn’t include our security.”

“We will continue to work to change the priorities until we put an end to rape culture,” she added.

The protest was organized by several women’s organizations, including the Tel Aviv Women’s Crisis Support Center; the Israel Women’s Network; the Feminine Spirit; Na’amat and the Women’s Counseling Center.

The organizers said at least 20 women have been murdered by their relatives or partners this year.

Last week, Israel’s ruling coalition voted against a proposal by opposition lawmaker Aida Touma-Sliman from Joint List to establish a parliamentary commission of inquiry “to investigate the failures and omissions in defending women.”

Speaking at the rally, lawmaker Tamar Zandberg, who heads Merez party, urged the Netanyahu administration to “take responsibility.”

“They tell us it’s not political, but when public officials reject a motion in the Knesset against the war against the murder of women, it cannot be said that it is not political. The allocation of resources is political,” she said.

  1. Sex with children, rape, I guess some men would put their willy in a mouse trap if they thought it would feel good. Real men kill those kind of men and protect women and children.

  2. The Old Testament is full of rape and sex. Who f…s whom and who came out of it. One or more sins will only bring their messiah faster.

  3. According to the Times of Israel, the protest was also attended by the white-phosphorus-murderess-war-criminal, Tzipi Livni, Yael Cohen Paran and Merav Michaeli of the Zionist Union. The two examples cited in the article are of Arabs and Africans.

    Which would mean this is another example using women’s rights as a means to demonize the enemy; this time the oppressed and unfortunate. Not so long ago, US women’s organizations standing up for women’s rights under the Taliban, have been tellingly quiet at the brothelization of numerous girls & women by the US occupation.

  4. in the Talmudic and the Jewish religion a lot kinds of sex are permitted including somethings forbidden by most religions or simply morals , even wikipedia has the I-n-c-e-s-t chart which shows which ones can initiate sex within the family with which relative , just go to wikipedia and search ” Jewish i-n-c-e-s-t ” ( without dashes obviously) and you’ll wind up to a chart listing all relationships also several Rabbis even profess sex with anyone more than 9 months old stating that sex with a nine month old is like a poke in the eye in which the eye waters and then recovers as good as new …. some rabbis demand that Jews should be exempt from sex with children laws as it is permitted by jewish law …. these are depraved perverts and there’s nothing to stop them besides these dont even follow the common moral rules …. yup its a race to do the maximum of whatever …..

  5. A dozen of these women in Tel Aviv need to rape Benny. He likely can’t even get it up anymore at his age and needs a dozen pills. Even his 40 body guards likely can’t help him get it up. These are the biggest hypocrites on planet earth. Hef reportedly dropped his sex tapes into the ocean. They should drop Benny out of a plane and let him search for them. Do humanity a favor.
