An Arab Israeli woman  publicly praised Jewish ethics Tuesday, contrasting them to the Muslim Brotherhood’s “rape gangs.”

Posting on a Facebook event page devoted to protesting the rape and torture of female activists in Egypt, Anet Haskia rejected comparisons between Israel and Egypt that others on the page had made. On her own page, Haskia had this to say:

“We are talking about the rape of Arab women in Egypt and other Arab states, and you still try to make a connection to Israel? Jewish men do not rape Arab women and girls! It is Arab Muslim men who are raping you, so focus this campaign on them and leave Israel alone.”

Haskia is from the mixed Jewish-Arab city of Akko, and is deeply supportive of the State of Israel. One of her children serves in the IDF. She credits her attitude to growing up in Akko where “we had good relations between Jewish and Arab families….We respected both Hebrew and Arabic-speakers.” She wants to enter Israeli politics, and represent Arab Israelis “who are too scared to speak up, who love Israel like I do and have done well here”.

    People are sexually attracted to those of their ethnicity. Arab men would rather rape arab women and jewish men would rather rape jewish women. Not to mention there is a lot of segregation within communities, so not as much opportunity for interracial rape.

    Mrs Haskia,

    I admire your honesty and your defense of Israel. We need more people like you in the world.

      There are rapes in Israel, committed by Jewish men.

      Rape is a crime committed by men of all races and religions.

    Mrs. Haskia makes a lot of sense.

    “who are too scared to speak up, who love Israel like I do and have done well here”.

    That has always been the problem with the Arabs. Those who want coexistence are targeted just like Jews. Israel must be a haven for freedom of religion and freedom of speech. It is enormously encouraging to read of people like Mrs Haskia and it is through people like her that attitudes in neighbouring countries will change for the better of all concerned..

      Please get your facts straight and get rid of the propaganda. Israel IS, in fact, a haven for freedom of religion and speech. It is the only nation in the middle east that is.
