Doofus Of The Day #808

It seems Israel has a feminazi problem too.  Today’s award goes to a particularly moonbattish specimen.  The report dates back a few years, but it’s still teeth-grindingly stupid!

Hebrew University has just awarded a research prize to a graduate student’s essay in which she claims that Israeli soldiers are “racists for not raping Arab women.”

This is no joke–anyway, who could make this up? The graduate student is a woman named Tal Nitzan. Her anthropological essay has been published by the Hebrew University’s “Shaine Center.”

Nitzan writes that the “lack of IDF rapes of Palestinian women is designed to serve a political purpose.” Since Israel fears the Palestinians demographically, IDF soldiers have been trained not to rape the women in order to avoid creating new Palestinians and little intifaders.

. . .

Thus, Israeli racism, which “de-humanizes” Palestinian women, suppresses Jewish male lust–which proves that Israeli soldiers are racist oppressors. As the only army that does not, apparently, rape, Nitzan fails to grapple with other reasons for this, including the possibility that Israeli soldiers are acting in an ethical and civilized manner.

According to Israeli Professor Steven Plaut who called this to my attention: “So essentially Nitzan is saying that the proof that Israeli soldiers are brutal oppressive stormtroopers is the fact that they do NOT mistreat and sexually abuse Palestinian women, not even the Palestinian terrorist women apprehended after trying to murder Jews.”

There’s more at the link.

So let me get this straight:

  • Not raping someone because of their race, is racist;
  • Racism suppresses lust – at least, Jewish lust.

You know, even the Ku Klux Klan or the Aryan Nations would have a problem swallowing those whoppers!  I think Ms. Nitzan deserves a Golden Doofus Award for being a particularly egregious example of the breed . . . and Hebrew University deserves another for granting formal recognition to such moonbattish views.



  1. Does the IDF rape anyone?
    Is there an target number of rapes of minority populations?
    Who sets that target?
    If you exceed the number do you get a commendation?

    Sounds like a true academic to me.


  2. Technically, and technically only, not raping someone because they're a specific race is racist – you are doing or not doing based on someone's race.

    Why anyone would feel that *not* raping someone for *any* reason is a bad thing…

    As for the conclusions reached… Wat. What, the actual, fuck.

  3. They are racist oppressors because they are not rapist oppressors? Seems like a good excuse to hate them and call them mean oppressors either way!

  4. I am someone who generally has something to say about darn near anything. A quip, an observation, an insult, something.
    I got nothing.

  5. I really need to figure out how I can get some of this grant money people hand out. I mean, I'm not above debasing myself in order to score some easy cash…

  6. That is quite possibly the most stupid thing I have ever read. If not, it's a top contender.

    m4's reaction is basically mine.
