Nawaf Athamneh, the 52 year old resident of Kafr Qara, NIF-funded public relations hack, and editor of the far left anti-Israel former Machsom (Checkpoint) website and other outlets was recently convicted of raping a 15 year old Israeli girl.

There are so many bad guys in this story you have to keep score; all deserve your ire.

THE CRIMES

Before Athamneh committed the actual crimes, he stalked his young victim through the personals section of a newspaper. He called himself “Amir,” pretending to be an Israeli, gained her confidence, claimed to obtain an incriminating photograph of her. With that, he had virtually complete control over the terrified girl as he threatened to show her family and community the photos.  He then hounded her, blackmailing her into meeting him and then forcing her to commit various sexual acts. Then he claimed he videotaped those humiliations and promised her still more sexual and other degradations.

The girl finally confided in her sister, the sister told her mother, the mother went to the police, a trap was set and Athamneh was apprehended, tried and convicted.

But there’s more to the story.

Athamneh’s past has not yet been connected to his current crime.  Yes, it is known he was an anti-Israel Arab Israeli, but the particular hypocrisy which has heretofore escaped the media’s notice is that Athamneh himself self-righteously charged others with violent sexual offenses:  Israelis.

Athamneh was the media coordinator of an event entitled, “My Land, Space, Body and Sexuality: Palestinians in the Shadow of the Wall.”

In the language describing the event, Athamneh and his colleagues discuss the brutal sexual control and violence of Israelis towards Arab Palestinians.

In a particularly chilling foreshadowing of the Athamneh’s own deviant behavior, he and his colleagues describe their event as one addressing how “sexuality and bodily rights are an integral part of human rights.”

An example Athamneh and his like-minded “gender studies” activists cited as undermining reproductive and sexual rights, “is the ‘nationality’ law in Israel, affecting people’s right to choose their partners.”

They describe Israel itself, as a whole, as causing “young girls and women” to suffer “serious violations of their bodily, sexuality and reproductive rights.”

2009 NIF SPONSORED CONFERENCE ACCUSING ISRAEL OF SEXUAL CRIMES AGAINST ARABS

The conference itself raised hackles at the time, in particular because of the provocative posters. There were a series of them, one which revealed the body and arm of a male Israeli soldier reaching towards the chest area of an Arab women, the other revealed the body and arm of a female Israeli soldier reaching towards the area of the sensitive body part of a male Arab.

The headline of the poster read: “Her husband needs a permit to touch her.  The occupation penetrates her life everyday.”

The irony continues.  Athmaneh and colleagues completed the description of their conference’s campaign by claiming it “highlights the need to intensify efforts aiming at protecting Palestinian men and women and to struggle against all forms of physical, sexual, psychological, political and social prejudice, oppression, discrimination and violence.”

So when they write they want to struggle against “all forms of physical, sexual, psychological, political and social prejudice, discrimination and violence,” did they also mean against Israeli Jewish girls?

The Jewish Press attempted to speak with Nawaf Athamneh before this story went to print, but his number has been disconnected.

The Jewish Press also attempted to speak with leadership at the New Israel Fund, which funded Athmaneh’s 2009 “My Land, Space, Body and Sexuality” conference as well as his organization, and which defended the organizations’ posters for the conference. There was no immediate response.

HAIFA DISTRICT CT JUDGE RON SHAPIRA SENTENCES ARAB RAPIST PEDOPHILE TO PERFORM MITZVOT

But there is a further ugly piece of this puzzle.

The 15 year old victim who finally was induced to overcome her mortification, who participated in the pursuit, trial and conviction of her torturer, and who implored, in a letter to sentencing judge Ron Shapira that a harsh sentence be imposed so as to deter others from engaging in similar brutalizing behavior.

But instead Haifa District Court Judge Ron Shapira decided to insult the young victim again.

Although Shapira said he agreed with the prosecution that the normal three to six year sentence for such crimes was appropriate, in this case he decided to depart from the appropriate sentence, in favor of attempting to rehabilitate the criminal.

  1. The action of the judge makes me feel like vomiting. Can the government intervene? Is there a way for the prosacuter to appeal the decision to let him go free. The message is that Arabs can rape Israeli girls and do not need to fear the consequences.

  2. AC Stubbs says:

    How did he get such a light sentence?

  3. Geoff Klein says:

    cant rehabilitate a pedophile predator. i hope the chareidi community takes justice into its own hands

  4. Myriam Obadia says:

    because our High Court is self-selected by co-option among pro-Arab judges already in place and the US refuses our Government and Knesset the right to pass a law to democratize the selection of judges in our country.

  5. Myriam Obadia says:

    Nope: the US forbade the move

  6. Ari Ben-Yam says:

    Swine should get a (prolonged) dunk in the Mikveh.

  7. Lori Lowenthal Marcus says:

    Actually, the prosecutors did appeal the sentence which was given by judge Ron Shapira of the Haifa District Court, but the Israeli Supreme Court refused to have it changed.

  8. Yechiel Baum says:

    six months for rape and Jews not allowed on the temple mount? where is Jewish justice? If in Arabia, he would be killed.

  9. Chaiya Eitan says:

    REHABILITATE?????????? 'judge' Ron Shapira – you will get your 'justice!!!' G-d will give it to you!!

  10. Bruce Bevitz says:

    One cannot rehabilitate sociopathic deviants. Had he commited these acts in an arab country. he would have been stoned to death. Haven't we turned enough cheeks. Haven't we been too conciliatory. I don't want to be crude, but there is great truth in the saying, "you can't shine ". Enough said. Tired of the pansy assed liberals trying to get good out of evil.

  11. Anonymous says:

    If this pig touched my child he would not ever appear in a court….the pervert would be dead and buried.

  12. Lori Lowenthal Marcus says:

    Yechiel, please note it is six months of COMMUNITY SERVICE, not jail time. Plus the community service to which he has been assigned will mean he will be polluting the purification rituals of the bodies of deceased Jews (chevra kadisha). Can you imagine a more grotesque sentence?!

  13. Six months jail is too lenient a sentence judge or no judge, same crime punishment fits all irrespective of who you are. Incidentally Yechiel, despicable arabs in Saudi are not hung but are simply fined – that is until the majority gets around for forcing the powers that be a stiffer sentence for rape is needed. Rarely are rapists hung, the victim is hung or humiliated in public.

  14. Anonymous says:

    Lori you are wrong, sorry, I am jewish in tradition, not religious, but I did chevra kadisha and I didn't find grotesque.

  15. Anonymous says:

    It is time to change goverment and authorities in Israel, installing the dead penalty and a quasi "sharia law", this actual authorities are making a good live at the expence of the tax payers unstead to serve.

  16. Esteban Sperber DOING A TAHARA IS NOT GROTESQUE BUT HAVING AND ANTI-SEMETIC RAPIST DOING IT IS GROTESQUE

  17. A while ago someone proposed that Israel sometimes exhibits the behavior of an abused child or wife — taking responsibility for the abuse and refusing to blame the abuser. Judge Shapira certainly seems to be suffering from some sort of mental disease or defect for sentencing such a barbarian to the opportunity to do a mitzvah.

    the child victim (the actual victim) and her family are entitled to an apology from the government of the state of Israel.

  18. where are the links?

  19. Lori Lowenthal Marcus says:

    links to what?

  20. benakiva37 says:

    The only appropriate punishment for this creep would be to cover his body with honey and expose him to flesh-eating ants.

  21. Don't blame others for your mistakes.

  22. Isadore says:

    It is time to call in the hit men.

  23. Lori Lowenthal Marcus says:

    Esteban Sperber of course SERVING on a chevra kadisha is not grotesque. Indeed, it is one of the highest forms of mitzvot. My point was that having a deviant like this convict be sentenced to be part of a purification ritual is disgusting.

  24. Uncle Vladdi says:

    Re: “Her husband needs a permit to touch her.” HUH?! SINCE WHEN!? Read the Qur’an and ahadith – “Women are like tilth for you to plow them at will!” Muslimas must Submit to their husband’s sexual desires time-tables or be beaten for refusing!

    As for the rest – 6 months’ community service?!
    The “judge” in this case should be lynched. Just sayin!’
