Rape charge for Arab posing as a Jew

Found this piece and think it just seems to sum up so much that is wrong with Isreal and its attitude to the arab population. Surely what difference does it make if somebody is a Jew or an Arab.
This is taken from the Jeruselm Post.

Court rules consensual sex between Jewish woman and Arab constitutes rape.

Jerusalem District Court ruled that consensual sex between a Jewish woman and an Arab posing as a Jew constituted rape.

On Monday, the court sentenced Sabbar Kashur, 30, an Arab from Jerusalem, to 18 months in prison as part of a plea bargain for rape by deception.

Kashur met a Jewish woman in downtown Jerusalem in 2008 and introduced himself as a Jewish bachelor seeking a serious relationship, the indictment said, according to media reports. The couple then went to a nearby building and had consensual sexual intercourse; Kashur then left.

The woman filed a complaint after realizing that Kashur was not Jewish.

The court ruled that the consent for sex was obtained under false pretenses.

"If she hadn't thought the accused was a Jewish bachelor interested in a serious romantic relationship, she would not have cooperated," the judges wrote


  1. If this was a legal basis for a rape charge then any bloke that ever used a chat up line, or exagerated anything about himself, would be guilty.

    This is pure racism.

  2. Isn't this like the stuff that happened in Nazi Germany?

  3. Why wasn't he just beaten up, and told to stay amongst his own kind. No need for charges.

  4. She wouldn't have had sex w/him if she knew he was an Arab - it's not racism on the part of the Israeli Government/Law - although you might not agree with her personal preference... Misleading someone so that they sleep with you is no different than slipping them a pill...
