Was it bad for you, too?

Posted by Ron Coleman on February 14, 2008

Combine unparalleled left-wing self-hatred with academic idiocy, and what do you get?

A Hebrew University Sociology department M.A. thesis entitled “Controlled Occupation: The Lack of Military Rape in the Israeli Palestinian Conflict” notes that the relative absence of instances of rape by Israeli soldiers is an alternate method of achieving the same kind of degradation of Palestinian Arabs that would be achieved through a directed policy of raping Arab women. The abstract of the paper, authored by doctoral candidate Tal Nitzan, notes that “the absence of directed military rape constitutes an alternative way of realizing the same political goals [usually achieved by directed military rape]. In the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, we can see that the rarity of military rape only strengthens the ethnic boundaries and clarifies inter-ethnic differences, just as directed military rape would have done.” The thesis, selected for publication by the university’s Shaine Center for Research in Social Sciences, was supervised by Hebrew University sociologist Eyal Ben–Ari and a senior lecturer in education, Edna Lomsky-Feder.

I’ve heard sociologists apeak of “status anxiety,” but for originality and chutzpah, I have to admit that this thesis takes the cake.

Yes, but not taking the cake would be just as bad — if not worse!

Hat tip to Craig Karpel.

    I hear that the UN is contemplating making the “failure to rape” an international war crime.

    You know, only someone with an advanced degree could think of something so stupid.

    Oh, with professional academics they can do a lot stupider than that. Trust me.

    “I hear that the UN is contemplating making the “failure to rape” an international war crime.”

    It would be really sweet to see the UN succeed at failing to rape for once.

    But do we really want Jews influencing world policy in that way?
    Just look at the way they are failing to behave.

    I say this on behalf of the UN: touche.

    You just can’t win.
