Some Irrelevant Rabbi Says Its OK to Rape Arabs in Wartime, And For Some Reason People Care

As is my wont, when checking the mainstream news, which I only do for safety reasons in case there is an attack or advisory, I only read headlines. Apparently now, some Rabbi guy with a beard who looks very Jewish and who is some sort of next in line head Rabbi Honcho of the government’s army, has said that it’s halachically permissible to rape an Arab woman to keep up soldier morale.

I wonder why people care what some government Rabbi who collects a tax paycheck for doing nothing says about anything. He has no authority even if he becomes “Chief Rabbi” of the army. He’s paid my money to preach about whatever. He would never be able to implement his rape teshuva, so why not just make him chief Rabbi of the world? Why not the solar system? Tell him he has the ability over every planet to preach whatever he wants. He can even paskin to the Oort Cloud as far as I care.

As long as he’s in a position where he can’t do anything or force anything and he’s only נהנה מהגזל then he’s doing less damage that he otherwise would if he were in a position of power. I say take all the Rabbis with state power over people’s lives and make them all Chief Rabbis of the Known Universe. We can divide the universe into however many sections and give each of them quadrillions of miles of space to Rabbinify. Pay them from the tax pile to paskin to space so long as they have no power to do anything or force anything on any human being on this planet and I’m all for it.

Whoever This Rabbi Is for Chief Rabbi of the Omegaquadrant of the Milky Way. Congratulations Rabbi. Keep blithering. If you have to take my money, take it for doing nothing and just saying whatever it is you want to say.

  1. Nice takedown. I read about him a couple of days ago and I was curious how you would react (I had no fear that you would agree with him, just a curiosity about what you would do with him).

    Sarcasm is the perfect antidote.

    • The big problem even from a halachic perspective is that what he’s saying is completely ussur (forbidden) anyway. In Deuteronomy it is explicit that when a Jew sees a gentile woman in wartime and wants to have sex with her, he must first let her mourn her parents for 30 days, and shave her head and let her nails grow long and wear rags. And if he still wants to sleep with her he needs to marry her. The point is to discourage the soldier from taking her at all in any capacity, and the Torah indirectly warns that marrying her will eventually lead to hating her and to bad children. But rape on the battlefield permissible? I have no clue how he justifies that not morally speaking, but dry Jewish law itself. It doesn’t make any sense.

  2. The Oort Cloud is technically part of the Solar System, since its comets orbit our sun.

    Aside from that, the only issue I have with the court Jews (the rabbis who are paid by the state) is that people listen to them.
