Not just rape, plenty of genital mutilation was involved.
If it is true.
In 2002, Rabbi Eyal Karim was asked, “Is it allowed in our days for an IDF soldier, for example, to rape girls during a fight, or is such a thing forbidden?”

Because Karim is now the Chief Military Rabbi for the Israel Defense Forces, his answer matters enormously. It’s been translated into English in two ways. One is blunt:

Karim replied that, as part of maintaining fitness for the army and the soldiers’ morale during fighting, it is permitted to “breach” the walls of modesty and “satisfy the evil inclination by lying with attractive Gentile women against their will, out of consideration for the difficulties faced by the soldiers and for overall success.”

Do you think the Palestinians were ignorant of this comment by the Israeli Chief Rabbi, over twenty years ago? :rolleyes:

Throughout my numerous posts, have you ever detected that I would remotely condone sexual violence? :rolleyes:

You have done by questioning whether or not it happened, and perversely then trying to justify it by quoting something a rabbi said some years back.

Joe Biden has called on the world to condemn the rape and mutilation of women and girls by Hamas during its deadly attack inside Israel on 7 October.

Speaking at a campaign fundraiser in Boston, the US president said female survivors and witnesses to the attacks have shared "horrific accounts of unimaginable cruelty" during the Hamas attack, that killed 1,200 people and saw 240 others taken into Gaza as hostages.

Mr Biden said: "Reports of women raped - repeatedly raped - and their bodies being mutilated while still alive - of women corpses being desecrated, Hamas terrorists inflicting as much pain and suffering on women and girls as possible and then murdering them. It is appalling."

He called said that such alleged crimes should be condemned "without equivocation" and "without exception" and that the world "can't just look away at what's going on”.

"It's on all of us - government, international organisations, civil society and businesses - to forcefully condemn the sexual violence of Hamas terrorists without equivocation. Without equivocation, without exception," Mr Biden said.

Mr Biden's comments come as Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's government has sought to put greater focus on the sexual violence it says Hamas committed. Recently released hostages have shared testimonies of sexual violence and abuse during their time in Gaza. Hamas has denied that militants committed sexual assaults.

Don't be daft. If I question whether a darts player scored a bull, does that suggest he deserved to score a bull, or that he didn't deserve to score a bull?
You're making up desparate allegations.:rolleyes:

I quoted the Rabbi to show that IDF soldiers rape with the condonation of the Israel state and its chief religious leader, twenty years ago.
It can hardly claim the moral highground now.

Like the decapitation of babies?
The world is still waiting for that evidence.
When US President Joe Biden publicly expressed his outrage at Hamas militants who invaded southern Israel and beheaded babies they had killed at Kfar Aza kibbutz last weekend, the public shock was both extensive and understandable. The gruesome news spanned the world’s media in hours.

But subsequent reports revealed that no such beheadings have been verified by any Israeli or international source – probably because they never happened. This was just one dramatic incident of false reports spreading in the public sphere via mass media to denigrate one’s foes and support one’s allies.
