Prominent Israeli journalist called for raping the Palestinian minor female prisoner inside Israeli jails Ahed al-Tamimi, 16, over slapping an Israeli soldier who shot her 15-year-old cousin in the head.
“In the case of the girls [Ahed al-Tamimi], we should exact a price at some other opportunity, in the dark, without witnesses and cameras,” journalist Ben Caspit wrote in an article published by the Hebron Maariv newspaper.
What might this price exactly be, considering that he is referring specifically to teenage girls? We are left to wonder. Perhaps he wishes to leave it to the imagination of the soldiers who would invade the home at night, ensuring that no cameras are filming.
Ben Caspit’s suggestion is a sly and wretched one, and it comes with the smugness of congratulating the soldiers for their moral strength, as it were, for not having acted back with force against the girls – on film, that is.
“There is no stomach which does not turn when witnessing this clip,” Caspit says, referring to Zionist stomachs, that is. “I, for example, if I were to encounter that situation, I would have long ago been in detention until end of procedures.”
In other words, Caspit is saying he would run amok on the girls to a degree that would get him arrested. That’s what he’s indirectly suggesting would be ‘normal,’ because he would do it.
Caspit’s suggestion resembles that of the Israeli Defence Minister Lieberman, who also said on Tuesday that “whoever goes wild during the day, will be arrested at night,” adding that “everyone involved, not only the girl but also her parents and those around them will not escape from what they deserve.”
The soldiers were repeatedly being called “gays” and “trannies” because they were not seduced by this little girl and did not rape her.
Elor Azarya, the Israeli soldier who killed a motionless Palestinian in Al-Khalil last year, wrote in July 2014, near the beginning of the onslaught on Gaza: “Bibi, you are transvestite. What a ceasefire? Penetrate their mothers!”
Israeli Culture Minister Miri Regev described the unwillingness of the Israeli soldiers to rape the little girls as “damaging of the honour of the Israeli army.”
