ISRAELI JUDGE GIVES HIM COMMUNITY SERVICE

Arab Rapist and Pedophile Accused Israel of Sex Crimes

So instead of sending Athamneh to a cold dark cell, Judge Ron Shapira chose to sentence the stalker pedophile to serve six months of community service volunteering at the Hadera Chevra Kadisha.  That’s right.  Athamneh is given a mitzvah to perform!

For those who do not know, a chevra kadisha is a community group who perform established rituals of purifiying, dressing and watching over the bodies of deceased Jews, so that they can be returned to the earth cleansed of all impurities.  It is one of the greatest honors and commandments to provide this final service to deceased Jews.

Judge Ron Shapira imposed one condition on his revocation of jail time for Athamneh.  He ordered that the community service penalty would be revoked and a prison term would be imposed if the rapist pedophile commits any further sex offenses over the course of the next three years.  Whew.

The prosecutors in this case appealed the outrageous sentence to the Israeli Supreme Court, which allowed the sentence to stand.

Final score:

Bad guys: Nawaf Athamneh, New Israel Fund, Haifa District Court Judge Ron Shapira, the Israeli Supreme Court.  Good guys: sister and mother of the victim.

The  jury is still out for the rest of us.

  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

  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!’
