Arab Who Posed As Jew Convicted Of Rape

From Israel’s Haaretz Daily:

Arab man who posed as Jew to seduce woman convicted of rape

By Tomer Zarchin


An Arab resident of Jerusalem who had consensual sex with a woman who believed him to be Jewish, was convicted yesterday of rape by deception and sentenced to 18 months in prison by the Jerusalem District Court.

Sabbar Kashur, 30, was convicted as part of a plea bargain. According to the indictment, Kashur met the complainant in September 2008 in downtown Jerusalem, presenting himself as a Jewish bachelor looking for a serious romantic relationship.

The couple then went to a nearby building and had sex, after which Kashur left the building without waiting for the woman to get dressed.

This was probably his big mistake.

When the woman found Kashur was not a Jew but an Arab, she filed a complaint that resulted in charges of rape and indecent assault.

In the verdict, deputy president of the Jerusalem district court Tzvi Segal, along with fellow judges Moshe Drori and Yoram Noam, wrote that although this wasn’t "a classical rape by force," and the sex was consensual, the consent itself was obtained through deception and under false pretenses.

Imagine the havoc if such a law were universally enforced.

"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.

Segal further wrote that this was not a case to be resolved by having the convicted defendant undertake community service, as was suggested by the defense team in the plea bargain.

Protecting the public interest

"The court is obliged to protect the public interest from sophisticated, smooth-tongued criminals who can deceive innocent victims at an unbearable price – the sanctity of their bodies and souls," Segal wrote.

"When the very basis of trust between human beings drops, especially when the matters at hand are so intimate, sensitive and fateful, the court is required to stand firmly at the side of the victims … otherwise, they will be used, manipulated and misled, while paying only a tolerable and symbolic price," he wrote.

Is there something in the water in the Middle East?

Or do they simply get too much sun?

    Is it me or is it a little warm in here?

    18 months for lying to a woman? Yikes!

  2. NoNeoCommies says:

    I could understand punishing a man for lying about marital status, but calling it rape because you found out he lied about his religion?
    I would expect that in Saudi Arabia.
    Of course, the Saudis would punish the woman more harshly than the man.

    • hushpuppy says:

      NNC – there are quite a few things you need to learn about inhabitants of the middle east:

      1) The koran encourages lying, misrepresentation, theft, fraud and murder if it is against Jews, Christians or other unbelievers. It’s called the Doctrine of Taqqiya.

      2) The Arab was doing what his unholy book directed: taqqiya to a Jew.

      3) The definition of rape (below) is what the Arab did.

      4) If you think that rape is particularly funny, I suggest you talk to a cop or Emergency room doctor, or psychologist as to the lasting trauma that occurs including a lack of trust.

      5) The woman thought she was with another Jew (trust) but was set up maliciously by an Arab who did this to her on purpose. This is not consensual but contains the element of fraud.

      6) Muslims circumcise their boys. (I Googled the question)

      7) It IS rape because he used his religion as a means of obtaining sex fraudulently. There is nothing consensual at all where there is no mutual consent.

      Any questions?

    • Liberals Make Great Speedbumps says:

      Yes I have a question hushpuppy, who here said anything about rape being funny? The sex was consensual and therefore cannot be considered rape. He presented himself as something he wasn’t? Too bad, it’s done every day by both sexes to get what they want. Get over it.

    Seen Arab women lately?
    Whisker burn is a turn off, definitely.
    C-4 vest is a turn off also!

    Just being silly.
    Oy….it’s hot here in N.C. today!

    Couldn’t the immoral woman just be happy the Arab didn’t chop her head off.

    She thinks she has it bad, Nearly every American got screwed by a muslim pretending to be a Christian American.

  5. A_Nonny_Mouse says:

    Well, to be as fair as our legal system gets any more, recall that some judge just struck down the “Stolen Valor Act” (which makes it illegal to lie about being a decorated war hero).

    I’ll assume we’re still allowed to say “tsk, tsk” in disapproval when we catch somebody lying, but according to this judge, our constitutionally-guaranteed right of “free speech” now specifically includes the “right to lie”.

  6. Papa Louie says:

    This conviction brings up all sorts of questions. If the man who claimed to be Jewish had turned out to be a Jewish convert to Christianity, would he still have been convicted of rape? What if he had claimed to be rich and it turned out he was really a poor Jew? And what if he lied about being well endowed to get in the sack with the woman. Could she still accuse him of rape for misrepresenting himself? Should brunettes who dye their hair and then claim to be natural blonds be sent to prison for misrepresenting themselves to their lovers?

    Maybe people should take the time to get to know someone before they jump in the sack with them. This might be a case for a civil lawsuit, but not a criminal case. She gave her consent, so unless he gave her a disease or physically harmed her in some way, I just can’t imagine why this would have ended up in criminal court except for the fact that he was Arab.

    • Liberals Make Great Speedbumps says:

      Nicely stated Papa Louie, I agree 100%.

    • hushpuppy says:

      Spoken like a liberal in conservative clothing, speedbump. The tone of several comments were making light of the situation; and that’s the reference to the line that for some reason _you_are really testy with. Wonder why that is? Is it because :

      “He presented himself as something he wasn’t? Too bad, it’s done every day by both sexes to get what they want. Get over it.”

      Because you appear to condone lies for sex, and that I should be the one to ‘get over it’, when in actuality you need to get over yourself and remember that:

      1) Two or more wrongs don’t make anything right

      2) Just because a lot of people are doing something wrong, immoral or illegal does not, by fiat, make it alright for everyone else to do

      3) laws in civilized countries take into account that people use lies, fraud, deceit and misrepresentation, and to the degree of same, will delineate if something is a felony or a lesser charge, a summary, mixed or indictable, or whatever terms are used in a country’s particular legal system. Since Israel’s laws as well as all English-speaking countries as well as Scandinavia, AUSNZ, and several African countries that were once British colonies use a very similar kind of legal system called Judeo-Christian law which is based on the first 5 books of the Old Testament. This base became the foundation for the Magna Carta and English Common Law.

      This, in turn was exported to every country England colonized. Every country that had this form of government flourished.

      So the bottom line is you really need to get over yourself, speedbump, because -to repeat- just because a lot of people do something wrong everyday doesn’t make it legal, right, moral or good.

      The sex was not consensual. It was obtained by fraud (taqqiya) – in other words: misrepresentation, lie. He knowingly lied. She did not know he lied.

    Under Sharia law this could not be considered ‘rape’ because it was a muslim man with an infidel woman. Rape only applies with respect to muslim women. Second, four witnesses did not see the rape therefore no conviction could occur. Third, the woman admitted to sexual intercourse with a person not her husband, thus she is guilty under Sharia law of either fornication or adultery, with the attendant death penalty. Fourth, the testimony of the infidel Jewish woman would be entitled to no weight (she could not even give testimony against the muslim man in an Islamic court) and thus no charges could have been brought against him. If the woman were muslim, her testimony would be given only half the weight as that of the muslim male perp.
    Isn’t islam wonderful.
