An Israeli academic has claimed that raping wives and mothers of Palestinian Hamas militants is the only thing that could deter further terrorist attacks.
The remarks by renowned Middle East scholar Mordechai Kedar of Bar-Ilan University were made three weeks ago after the grim discovery of the bodies of the three kidnapped Israeli teenagers, but the recording was published online (in Hebrew) on Monday.
"The only thing that could deter a suicide bomber is knowing that if caught, his sister or his mother would be raped," said Kedar on Israel Radio Bet.
"It sounds very bad, but that’s the Middle East," he continued. "You have to understand the culture in which we live. The only thing that deters [Hamas leaders] is a threat to the connection between their heads and their shoulders."
To the shocked radio presenter who said that “we cannot take such steps, of course”, Kedar replied:
"I’m not talking about what we should or shouldn’t do. I’m talking about the facts. The only thing that deters a suicide bomber is the knowledge that if he pulls the trigger or blows himself up, his sister will be raped. That’s all. That’s the only thing that will bring him back home, in order to preserve his sister’s honor."
Kedar served for 25 years in the military intelligence, where he specialised in Islamic groups. He is currently a researcher at the right-wing Begin-Sadat Centre for Strategic Studies of Bar Ilan but previously worked for a shadowy organisation, the Israel Academia Monitor, which fights left-leaning academic professors.
At which point do you say ‘enough is enough’ and speak out against your hard earned tax dollars being sent to/your leaders supporting this country?
Ethnic cleansing, targeting civilians, ambulances, hospitals, harvesting organs of dead Palestinians without consent, forced sterilisation of Ethiopians, land grab, apartheid wall, illegal settlements, and now incitement to rape - is it time to wake up, world?
Well, the soldiers who shoot innocent people are coming from somewhere. They aren’t from another planet. Just trained into thinking Israeli life weighs a lot more than Palestinian life.There is no ‘innocent’ or ‘child’ or ‘woman’ as a life. Or the fact that someone is unarmed.
Every Palestinian and those that aid them are targets. It doesn’t matter if the little children were just born on the wrong side and are innocent. It doesn’t matter that there is an old man or woman who uses a stick for support when they are walking. They are of a different ‘race’ and therefore the enemy. They are not human lives. They are just targets of some sick game.
Aisha, may Allah be pleased with her, said: I asked the Messenger of Allah: ‘O Messenger of Allah, if I know what night is the night of Qadr, what should I say during it?’
He (The Prophet PBUH) said:
'Say: O Allah, You are pardoning and You love to pardon, so pardon me.'
"(Ahmad, Ibn Majah, and Tirmidhi).

We’re NaruBleach RP Centre, a Naruto and Bleach canon-AU crossover roleplay set in an educational institution called Iwakiri Academy, which is run by -guessguessguess- a plushie. ;o Iwakiri Academy is a place where characters from both fandoms meet, study and live together, where time is distorted, and characters who were dead now walk among the living. And just so that things won’t fall to the monotony of every day school life, the Headmaster sometimes organizes events to keep things interesting, some of them ordinary, some of them just plain bizarre, some with a bit of magic thrown in. The possibilities are endless!
There’re still lots of roles open, not just the one mentioned above, so if you’re interested, what are you waiting for? Come and join us!
We look forward to roleplaying with you!
One of my good friends is an amazing make-up artist. And even more than that, she is an amazing person. She has just found out that some of the make-up companies she uses for her products are pro-israeli and is therefore, boycotting them.
Yesterday I was happy asleep, blissfully unaware.
Moments of realisation were brief, still i didn’t care.
I am recognised as an artist,
But what is my story?
Let me open up to you,
Do i support the Israeli?
I paint faces and rejoice at success,
But there is more to tell. You see I did not know, I did not know that it’s Palestinian blood they sell.
Estee Lauder and Maybelline to name a few, I emptied my wallet! But little did I know I paid for a bullet!
The past I cannot change, I must look ahead. I cant paint faces like this, all I see is red. I thought I was writing a poem, but I speak from the heart. I need a new start. Its time I play my part.
How many artists will join me today? Help me please to find an alternative way. #BoycottIsrael in all that they supply, let it be their businesses that die!!!
How many got this far down the caption? I wrote that a few days ago and it took me that long to swallow the truth, little did I know how much I contributed to the pain and suffering of Palestinians. In that time how many have died at our helping hand? No more!!! HOW MANY ARTISTS WILL JOIN ME!? I see everyone posting in support of raising awareness and sending aid to Palestine, Syria, Gaza etc. But how far will we go!? as a MUA these products are my livelihood. But at the expense of dying innocents!? Tortured and maimed!? NO. I am not just talking about boycotting products MADE IN Israel. Im talking about companies that are actively pro-Israeli! Estee Lauder is featured in this post because it relates to me alot! A third of my kit is @maccosmetics @justbobbibrown !!!!!!!
Research it. THE CHAIRMAN RONALD LAUDER openly states that his goal is to legitimise Israeli occupation!!!!!
Now. I am no expert and no doubt people will point fingers at me saying Ive used these products. YES I HAVE. But I had no idea this was the extent of things. I was blissfully ignorant. But to knowingly finance this war crime on humanity…. No thanks. I can do without that MAC lippy. I cant change what I have done. But I can change what I will do now and tomorrow. It will be really hard for me to stop using these products. Please help me find alternatives for when I have to replenish stock!!! Join me in
Without US these companies are nothing. Without our money these companies cant finance the war!!! I understand it is going to be hard. PLEASE dont think that boycotting will not make a difference. IT WILL. Even if you cant find alternatives but you dont INDULGE in these products its better than nothing. These companies and those alike might own and be in control of “everything”, but know Allah (Swt) is the almighty and inshallah your intentions and heart will not go unnoticed….
So…. How many of you will join me?
(Find me on instagram to hashtag and show support @mohimafarchu) x
Kind of a little random (probably incorrect) guide to basic sorts of shading-
I also forgot flat shading which is no shading or highlighting at all
But here’s something to ah… look at I guess.
