The ‘Some Girls Like Being Raped’ Judge Resigns

Retired Tel Aviv District Court Judge Nissim Yeshaya has announced he is quitting as an appeals court judge, two days after he publicly stated in court, “There are some girls who enjoy being raped.”

He made the comment during an appeal by a 19-year-old Israeli who was raped by Arabs at the age of 13 and was appealing a Defense Ministry decision not to recognize the attack as an act of terrorism.

Justice Minister Tzipi Livni and Supreme Court President Asher Grunis spoke with Judge Yeshaya about his outburst and accepted his resignation.

“The judge announced his resignation, and this is the correct and only step in this grave incident,” Livni said.

“This is the only way to restore public trust in the judicial system,” she added. “Every judge needs to know that his being examined, correctly, under a magnifying glass and that he must conduct himself correctly as one who is guarding justice and who determines the fate of others.

“We are not speaking only about a comment but about a view that women have been struggling with for years that throws on them the guilt as victims of rape. This kind of expression from a judge is liable unintentionally to give twisted minds legitimacy to rape.

Judges also need to know that when a woman says, “No,” she means ‘No.’”

  8. dit is beyond schandalig, mensen die dit durven zeggen hebben geen gevoel!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  9. Has this Israeli Judge, ex-Judge), been listening to our Republican Party? has he not learned anything from the likes of Richard Mourdock, Todd Akin, and other U.S. politicians, all of who lost their re-election bids for making stupid comments about "forcible rape," "that is god's intended consequence (when a raped woman gets pregnant), woman cannot pregnant from rape because the body shuts that sort of thing down. Those guys said those things in 2012, and all were defeated. All are considered laughing stock, too. Raped women should not be stoned, harassed, or blamed. They are victims, and rape is a violent crime. Rape is not sex or passion; it is a violent crime of control. If a man rapes an 80 year old grandmother or a 10 year old boy. Both are crimes. One is pedophlia, not gay sex, but pedophilia (rape and molestation of a child), and one is rape of a woman. Rape is a crime of control and violence. Both are criminals. Both are deeply disturbed individuals. The teen who molests another teen who is drunk and unconscious at a party is also committing rape, and deserves 20 years to life in prison, and no, I don't care if the boy is a promising, intelligent, young student athlete.
