Would the Arab who raped a seven-year-old girl from the Binyamin region have dared to rape a girl from the village of Deir Qadis? Of course not - and not only because his life would have been significantly shortened and his family would have had to have abandoned the village. It wouldn't have happened, because in many of these rape cases, where an Arab rapes a Jewish woman, there is a dimension beyond that of satisfying sexual desire. "You deserve it," (according to the reports) said the rapist's friends, who held her hands and feet. When an Arab rapes a Jew, it has a nationalist dimension as well. When an Arab rapes a Jew, it is not only sexual, and it is not only nationalistic: It is a nationalistic rape.
