Kosher Sex Predators

April 1, 2008

Where are the multi-million dollar lawsuits? The front page New York Times exposes? This report says that the “Ultra-Orthodox” are a closed community and that’s why these incidents are rarely reported and prosecuted, but given the heavy Judaic presence in the mainstream press and the lack of reporting on this problem in that same press, it seems that the Judaic community as a whole is acting as a closed community on this matter. They never fail to report on Catholic sex abuse cases, however.

Police: Bnei Brak has by far the highest rate of sexual offenses

… “The number of sex offenses in the Bnei Brak area [of the Israeli state] is higher than any other city by tens of percentage points, and it is clear to us that we do not know about many cases that are not even reported because of the well-known fact that in the Haredi (ultra-Orthodox) community, there is great reluctance about reporting such incidents,” a senior police officer in the Tel Aviv District said …

Police say that “this is a widespread phenomenon and children are harmed by it. The problem is that this is a closed community where it is not customary to report such cases. Thus sexual assailants, and other kinds of criminals, know they can operate without fear in Bnei Brak, and know that the chances that complaints will be filed against them is minimal” …

The Dangers of Radical Judaism and Media Hypocrisy

April 1, 2008

Will there be 20/20, Dateline and New York Times exposes on these tyrannical, perverted, backwards Judaic traditions as there has been on Muslim traditions? Or will they be hidden away in periodicals meant only for Judaic readers? Note that the name of the sect of Judaism which this woman belongs to has been protected by censorship. What other religious group receives this kind of media protection?

Child abuse suspect to be put under house arrest

ETGAR LEFKOVITS – Jerusalem Post

Mar 30, 2008

54-year-old woman suspected of severely abusing her 12 children will be released from police custody and placed under house arrest later this week.

The Jerusalem Magistrate’s Court on Sunday extended her remand by two days, and then ordered her to be placed under house arrest for the next 15 days.

The woman was arrested last week in her Ramat Beit Shemesh home.

On Sunday, a police representative said the woman would routinely tie her children to a pole and then give them electric shocks and beat them with belts and sticks when they failed to learn their Talmud lessons.

The woman, who has said she was “educating” her children, told police she was simply re-enacting the biblical flogging story of Batsheva and Solomon, the police representative told the court.

According to haredi media and a well-informed source in Beit Shemesh, the woman leads a sect of women who adhere to a dress code more stringent than that of the most extreme Muslim sects and a rigorous health food diet.

The suspect again appeared in court Sunday covered from head to toe in black, and refused to speak in the presence of men.

In a separate case, the court allowed the father of an abused child to visit his critically injured infant in a Jerusalem hospital in the presence of social workers.

The child’s mother, whose remand was extended by six days, remains in custody. More arrests are expected in that case.

Jerusalem Post earlier reported that:

The Beit Shemesh resident is also suspected of failing to report multiple cases of incest among her children …The mother is also suspected of breaking one daughter’s nose with a rolling pin, leaving her children to sleep outside in a locked shed when they came home late, and preventing them from receiving medical treatment for their injuries. The mother said it was all part of their “education,” according to court documents.

The father of the family was abroad at the time of the arrest, seeking charity donations, and had not returned for the court hearing on Tuesday.

When the abuse was discovered last month, only two of the couple’s 12 children, who range in age from eight to 33, lived at home.

The two clearly abused children, including a disabled teenager, have since been removed from the home by social workers, the police investigator told the court.

When the children of the family were treated by social workers, it emerged that the teenagers had committed incest with each other, over a long period of time, the police officer said.

The teenage boy who was removed from the house told social workers that he had had sexual relations with his 18-year-old sister, and that he had told his parents and his rabbis, and that the latter told him not to tell anybody else … (“Mother of 12 suspected of abusing kids,” Jerusalem Post, Mar 25, 2008)
