a string of premeditated acts and after ALL this only 2.5 years of prison??? Why donĀ“t we "honor kill" the raped soldier on top of that? What the hell, are we becoming arabs or what??
2. Only 2.5 years?!?!
Oren   (02.20.13)
This monster gets only 2.5 years for scarring a girl for life??! That's a perversion of justice, the guy needs to rot in jail for the rest of his life
3. A woman who is raped is condemned to a lifetime
Rivkah   (02.20.13)
of sorrow if she is a godly woman like Tamar, the daughter of King David, who was desolate in her brother Absalom's house after her half brother Amnon raped her. Absalom felt the correct penalty for the rape of his sister was death for Amnon. Amnon's death comforted King David and he forgave Absalom. The rape of Dinah, daughter of the Patriarch Jacob, resulted in her brothers killing the rapist and a lot of others. But this guy? He gets 2 and a half years. That is not mercy. That is cruel and unusual punishment for a victim of rape. That is the same as calling the victim the predator and the predator the victim. Rape ruins lives and condemns the woman to marriage to one of the 999 out of a thousand males who are not worthy of the Man, who will afflict her and ridicule her and tell her his children are his "supposed" children since he is not sure whose they are if she had sex (was raped) before he married her. I have seen that in many lives and that is why the Japanese and Muslims have a hymen surgical repair a few weeks before a wedding to give the male the illusion of being the only one after a woman is raped or seduced and abandoned.

ONLY 2.5 YEARS??? I hope she appeals. All my solidarity for her. He is a monster (rape plus premeditation, with two other guys) and in Israel's ARMY?? Where is this country going??? He should have had at least 10, or he will do it again. The way the judicial treats rape victim's is the sign of a country's evolution. 2,5 years shows that the Justice staff didn't care about the shattered live of this girl. I hope she calls rape survivors associations and gets a good appeal strategy, media PR, cause maybe her lawyer wasn't good. And you need an expert of those cases for the machist justice to understand. SHAME ON ISRAEL'S JUSTICE SYSTEM FOR THIS GIRL.
5. It could have been worse,
Dr Arthru Trotzky ,   Kiryat Tivon, Israel   (02.21.13)
He could have been driving drunk and killed someone and might get 3 years in jail.
6. Israel President got more for less
Jew ,   Israel   (02.21.13)
7. Rape
Edouard ,   Canada   (02.21.13)
This guy is no beter than a killer What he did deserve aLONG term sentence Not just few months
8. Deny the army !
Tomi ,   Hungary   (02.21.13)
If the information in this article is correct, the girls of Israel should consider to deny army service, The judicial system is doing almost nothing to protect them and to prevent future rapes, assaults against them !
9. IDF must be kept above reproach.
Lenya ,   Australia   (02.21.13)
With so much attacks coming from inside and outside Israel against its defense forces. The IDF needs to properly prosecute and make examples of rogue members and keep the IDF above reproach.
10. Where's the tzedeq???
kippah seruga ,   Jewish Spring Israel   (02.21.13)
11. #3
Vlad   (02.21.13)
Are you TRYING to be offensive, or are you just plain batshit insane?
12. Wrong punishment
Raptor   (02.21.13)
His nuts should be on the block.
13. Rape and Indecent Assault
Ariye ,   Mata   (02.21.13)
If the prosecutor is entitled to appeal against this ludicrously low sentence, it would be a disgrace if he does not.
14. 11 Vlad: The Holy Scriptures OFFEND YOU? That means
your eternal soul is on perilous grounds. The holy of holies of a woman should not be violated except by her lawfully wedded husband. R.
