I have to admit, this story is not surprising, not from any angle.
Women, especially western women, are viewed as fair game in the Arab Muslim world, hence rape is frequently understood as the fault of the victim.
That the raped women have been pressured not to go public with the crimes is standard operating procedure for the international left. Let's not forget that victimhood makes the left go round.
But some victims are, um, more fashionable than others.
Western leftists and their Islamist masters have positioned Israel, the Jews, as the great enemy, hence the despicable crimes of the Paletinians—institutionalized Jew-hatred, international terrorism, and now rape of their own—have been dropped down the Orwellian memory hole.
In short, these leftist rape victims now fall into the category of Holocaust denial—a specialty of the Arab Muslim world.
The rapes never happened.
And if they did, well, it's the fault of the woman.
From Lenin to Stalin to Mao, the left always devours its own.If you are looking for an adventure of a new and different kind, then you should probably head for the Palestinian territories, where you can do a real service to the oppressed Palestinians and at the same time get first hand experience of solidarity and intimate dialog with Palestinian Arabs, who, it seems, rape American and European female activists.
