How thy do it– IDF’s Chief Rabbi ‘Sorry’ for Remarks Justifying Wartime Rape of Gentile women

IDF GAZA PALESTINE

ed note–besides the obvious, which is that no nation in the civilized world could get away with something like this except THE JEWISH STATE, the other things to consider are the implications associated with Karim’s appointment, past, present, and future–

1. Where, oh where, we ask, is the Jewish ‘outrage’? Where is the typical noise, the screeching, hollering, rending of robes and gnashing of teeth these folks are so famous for putting on display? Where is the wall of protest, such as what the world experienced for almost a year during the campaign season when a ‘racist’ and a ‘misogynist’ by the name of Donald J. Trump was running for office?

Silent as death, and for perfectly understandable reasons. Karim is exactly the kind of rabbi that the Jewish state wants/needs. He interprets things according to the letter of the law, and by that we mean of course the Old Testament, which was/is/always will be specific in its legalization of the rape of non-Jewish women by Jewish men during a time of war, to wit–

“When you go to war against your enemies, and the Lord your God gives them into your hand and you take them captive, and you see among the captives a beautiful woman, and you desire to take her to be your wife and you bring her home to your house, she shall shave her head and pare her nails. And she shall take off the clothes in which she was captured and shall remain in your house and lament her father and her mother a full month. After that you may go in to her, but if you no longer delight in her, you shall let her go where she wants. But you shall not sell her for money, nor shall you treat her as a slave, since you have humiliated her.’ Book of Deuteronomy

Which brings us to our next point–

2. As chief rabbi for the IDF, Karim is not there just to hear confessions or pray over the bodies of dead IDF. He is there to interpret the various passages of the Old Testament dealing with the murder of men, women, and children in places such as Gaza, the West Bank, Syria, Lebanon Jordan, Iraq, etc, all those areas which Israel–THE JEWISH STATE–considers to be hers by virtue of divine right, to wit– 

‘On that day the LORD made a covenant with Abraham, saying “To your descendants I give this land, from the river of Egypt to the great river Euphrates”…–Genesis, 15:18

‘And God spoke unto us saying, ‘Go to the hill-country and all the places nigh thereunto… in the Arabah, the hill-country and in the Lowland… in the South and by the sea-shore, the land of the Canaanites, and Lebanon, as far as the great river, the river Euphrates…Go in therefore and possess the land which the Lord swore unto your fathers, to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, unto them and to their seed after them…’ Deuteronomy 1:6–8

‘Every place whereon the sole of your foot shall tread shall be yours, from the wilderness, and Lebanon, from the river Euphrates, even unto the hinder sea shall be your border…’ Deuteronomy 11:24

‘…From the wilderness, and this Lebanon, even unto the great river, the Euphrates, all the land of the Hittites, and unto the Great Sea toward the going down of the sun, shall be your border…’Joshua 1:4

–When the Lord your God brings you into the land he swore to your fathers, to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, he will give you a land with large, flourishing cities you did not build, houses filled with all kinds of good things you did not provide, wells you did not dig, and vineyards and olive groves you did not plant…–Book of Deuteronomy

‘When the LORD your God brings you into the land you are to possess and casts out the many peoples living there, you shall then slaughter them all and utterly destroy them…You shall save nothing alive that breathes…You shall make no agreements with them nor show them any mercy. You shall destroy their altars, break down their images, cut down their groves and burn their graven images with fire. For you are a holy people unto the LORD thy God and He has chosen you to be a special people above all others upon the face of the earth…’–Book of Deuteronomy

‘Your male and female slaves are to come from the nations around you; from them you may buy slaves. You may also buy some of the temporary residents living among you and members of their clans born in your country, and they will become your property. You can will them to your children as inherited property and can make them slaves for life, but you must not rule over your fellow Israelites ruthlessly…’–Leviticus 25:44-46

“Foreigners will rebuild your walls, and their kings will serve you…Your gates will always stand open, day and night, so that the Gentiles may bring you the wealth of their nations and their kings led in triumphal procession, for the nation or kingdom that will not serve you will perish; it will be utterly destroyed.”–Isaiah 60:10-12

We have seen this before. In previous engagements, there was IDF Chief Rabbi Avichai Rontzki instructing the IDF prior to the land invasion of Gaza to kill indiscriminately, specifically telling the ‘world’s most moral army’ that “In times of war, whoever keeps his sword from bloodshed and who shows mercy toward his enemy, his heart and soul is damned’, and they did it, willingly and gleefully, lest we forget–

GAZA 2014

And please, no emails/commentary from people making the ridiculous argument that this is not ‘true Judaism’, but rather something invented by ‘the Khazars’ and codified in the Talmud.

This is Judaism–past, present, and future.

Forward

Eyal Karim, the rabbi whose appointment as the chief chaplain of the Israeli army was suspended over his remarks on raping women, was sworn in to the position.

Karim’s appointment as the chief rabbi of the Israel Defense Forces follows a Supreme Court review of his suitability last month. The court found no reason to challenge the appointment, which prompted Left-wing lawmakers and activists to file for an injunction, citing quotes attributed to Karim from 2006.

Replying to a reader’s question on the Kipa website that year, Karim said: “Although intercourse with a female gentile is very grave, it was permitted during wartime (under the conditions it stipulated) out of consideration for the soldiers’ difficulties. And since our concern is the success of the collective in the war, the Torah permitted [soldiers] to satisfy the evil urge under the conditions it stipulated for the sake of the collective’s success.”

He has since repeatedly said his statement should not be interpreted as license to rape, as his critics charged. “There is no license in times of peace or war to sexually assault women,” he told Ynet in July.

On Wednesday, Karim published a written statement reading: “I made a mistake when I gave a short answer to a complicated question. I was wrong because sometimes I was not precise with my words and some people found them offensive. I apologize.”

Miriam Naor, president of the Supreme Court, said in a statement last week that there was no reason to further delay Karim’s appointment. The Meretz lawmakers who filed for an injunction against the appointment also withdrew their petition, finding that his clarification was “consistent with the values of Israel as a Jewish and democratic state.”

Karim also was asked to clarify his positions on two other issues related to women and the military. On the Kipa site, according to Ynet, Karim said women should not be conscripted due to concerns over modesty and their impact on the IDF, and that according to Jewish law, female singers should not perform at military events.

In July, Karim said he believed that women should serve in the army and pointed out that he was part of the committee that established the protocol that requires soldiers to be present at events where women sing. He said he has ordered soldiers present at such events not to leave.

“It’s desirable to create a ceremonial post that respects the views of all those present at the ceremony, and, to that end, to bring a male and not a female singer,” he wrote. “When this would not be possible, due to various reasons, those whose sensitivities would be offended must be excused from attending the ceremony.”
