Future Academic: Lack of Organized Rape = Problem w/ IDF?
Future whackademics tackling the important issues and asking the important questions, once again:
The abstract of the paper, authored by doctoral candidate Tal Nitzan, notes that the paper shows that “the lack of organized military rape is an alternate way of realizing [particular] political goals.” The next sentence delineates the particular goals that are realized in this manner: “In the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, it can be seen that the lack of military rape merely strengthens the ethnic boundaries and clarifies the inter-ethnic differences - just as organized military rape would have done.” The paper further theorizes that Arab women in Judea and Samaria are not raped by IDF soldiers because the women are de-humanized in the soldiers’ eyes. The paper was published by the Hebrew University’s Shaine Center, based on the recommendation of a Hebrew University professors’ committee headed by Dr. Zali Gurevitch. “I do not have the entire text in front of me,” Gurevitch said, when contacted by Arutz-7, “and I don’t think we can jump to conclusions based on partial sentences, but I can say the following: This was a very serious paper that asked two important questions: Is the relative lack of IDF rapes a noteworthy phenomenon, and if so, why is it that there are so few IDF rapes when in similar situations around the world, rape is much more common”Maybe the lack of an actual rape at Duke University was symbolic of a wider pattern of racially-motivated rape (or even worse, non-rape) that is in fact pan-racial and pan-cultural. Only time and academic examination will solve this mystery of mysteries. That, or maybe these learned scholars can come up with another unintentionally hilarious torturous explanation as to why their characterizations and projected stereotypes of the IDF don't actually exist in reality. Consider this an addendum to Howie's earlier post.
