Abbas is Proud of Them
Is it legitimate for a Muslim female to touch a male she is not related to? You would think not. But there is an exception, it appears, offered by none other than the illustrious leader of the Palestinian Authority, himself.
Next time you hear anyone accuse Israeli soldiers of sexually assaulting ‘Palestinian’ women and girls, just show them this video or the screenshop I added at the end. Remember that Muslim girls are not supposed to be touched by any man. That is an insult to family honour and punishable by death. You know, honour killings of girls and women. But an absolution is offered to them if these women and girls purposefully touch Israeli soldiers in order to shame THEM, the soldiers.
The relevant piece begins at 2:41. Abbas says:
When they see unarmed people, people who have no weapons… Women and children chase (the Israelis) who run away from them… It makes me happy to see this. Really. [clapping heard] This is our way to accomplish what we want. By means of peaceful resistance, and with these efforts… The sisters should be in front at the protests. This is the most important thing. Seeing the girls beating up a policeman or a soldier really fills my heart with joy. This is how we want our peaceful popular resistance to be. This is our way to vanquish our enemies, and to achieve our independent state with Jerusalem as its capital.
Sure, putting women at the front of demonstrations and sending them to assault our soldiers because the IDF is morally repulsed by sexual assaults against women and girls or anything that could be construed as being such.This is the power of Ahed Tamimi and the like.
They laugh at the Israeli soldiers who run in order not to attack women back, unless the woman is holding a weapon, cold or hot.
In fact, Dr. Anat Berko told me, in a telephone conversation, that some of the female terrorists who attack IDF soldiers at checkpoints do not even try to hide their knives because they want to be caught. “They have more freedom in an Israeli prison than they do in their own patriarchal society,” Berko said.
But let it be known that those weaponless women and children who run to slap and kick Israeli soldiers are given absolution from the sin of not touching a man they are not related to by that paragon of virtue, Mahmoud Abbas.
