Man Jailed for Raping Woman “By Saying He Was Jewish”!?

Man Jailed for Raping Woman “By Saying He Was Jewish”!?

A man who had consensual sex with a Jewish woman, falsely saying was also a Jew, has been convicted of rape and sentenced to 18 months in prison. Judges said he had robbed his willing partner of “the sanctity of body and soul.”

The man, a 30-year-old Israeli citizen of Arab extraction, arranged a date with an Israeli woman in 2008.

The pair met in Jerusalem, with the man introducing himself as a Jew seeking a relationship, and the date went well enough for the couple to have consensual sex in a nearby building.

The woman later found out that her partner was not in fact a Jew, and subsequently filed a report of rape and indecent assault against him.

Judges reasoned that although she happily had sex on her first date with a man she believed to be a Jew, she would not have touched him had she known he was a mere non-Jew, and so he was guilty of raping her:
