IDF Villanized For Not Raping Women

From The Jawa Report - a prize-winning research paper submitted to a Hebrew University is suggesting a political agenda is the sole reason the IDF does not rape Palestinian women:

A research paper that won a Hebrew University teachers' committee prize finds that the lack of IDF rapes of Palestinian women is designed to serve a political purpose.

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?"

"Similar situations around the world"? For instance, say... involving ISLAM? The very religion in which the enslavement and rape of an enemy woman is considered a virtue? The religion whose own prophet - the perfect example & beautiful pattern of conduct for Muslim men - raped enemy women and children? The same religion involved in nearly every major conflict on earth?

Occam's Razor states entities should not be multiplied unnecessarily. In other words, the simplest and most logical theory is usually correct. The suggestion that the IDF has some sort of political motivation to make them resist committing a barbaric act is not only unnecessarily complex, it is ridiculous. The most logical theory? IDF soldiers are simply better human beings than their Islamic opposition.
