Kritik an aktuellem Vergewaltigungs-Urteil in Israel

Gestern hatte ich hier einen Artikel verlinkt, de zufolge ein Araber in Israel wegen Vergewaltigung verurteilt wurde, weil er gegenüber der Frau, mit der er geschlafen hatte, behauptet hatte, er sei Jude. Inzwischen liegen Reaktionen auf dieses Urteil vor:

Gideon Levy, a leading liberal commentator, said: "I would like to raise only one question with the judge. What if this guy had been a Jew who pretended to be a Muslim and had sex with a Muslim woman. Would he have been convicted of rape? The answer is: of course not."

Israeli human rights activists said that Kashur's actions reflected the deceits many Palestinians practise when in Israel in an attempt to avoid official and private prejudice because of their background. "It is very well known that Israeli-Palestinians living in Israel disguise themselves," said Leah Tsemel, a human-rights lawyer. "You change your accent and you change your dress because if you look like an Arab you face harassment. "If you want to enter a pub, you'd better not look like an Arab and if you want to have sex with an Israeli girl, you had better not look like an Arab."
