Richard Silverstein’s Bedouin Slip

Yesterday, anti-Israel DouchebloggerTM Richard Silverstein posted this “breaking news”:

Reading this headline, you would expect to see a story regarding the arrest of Jewish Israeli sex traffickers, who repeatedly raped a Bedouin girl. You need to read all the way down to discover the truth:

An Israeli source has passed on key documents in the case which reveal key elements of the case, including the names of the defendants and their alleged crimes.  They are from the village of Shaqib al-Salam:

Muhannad Al-Tarabin (17)
Muhammad Al-Tarabin (18)
Bashar Abu-Bilal (17)
Mahmoud Abu-Bilal (21)
Muhammad Al-Rajilat (17)
Nizar Tarabin (28)
Izz Abu-Bilal (25)
Muataz Abu-Bilal (28)

The defendants, all of whom are Bedouin and three of whom are minors, are accused of forming a sex ring which abused a 13 year-old girl over the course of eighteen months beginning in 2020

For some strange reason, Silverstein has misleadingly referred to the rapists as Israeli and only the victim as Bedouin (I assume that “strange reason” is his unhinged hatred of Israel). In fact, later on, he slips up and implies they are palestinian Arab:

In previous cases involving such sex crimes, no restrictions were placed on reporting them in the media.  However, in this case the press may not report the defendants’ names, any other details of the case, nor even that there is a gag order.  Thanks to a courageous Israeli some documents have been shared with me which enable me to report it.

The gag order reveals the absolute ineffectiveness of Israeli law enforcement in policing Palestinian communities.

And although Silverstein does eventually reveal the perpetrators are Bedouin, he still cannot help but make it all about Israel:

Lest anyone tie this alleged crime to the Bedouin culture or traditions, I remind readers that even the elite males of Israeli society are not above such vicious crimes against women.  The Cyprus gang rape scandal is a prime case in point. There a low level professional soccer player organized the rape of a young British woman who was drugged and plied with liquor until she could not resist.  Among the Israeli men who raped her was the son of a high-level Likud political operative.  In Israel, rape is a phenomenon common to all ethnicities.

Silverstein’s hatred of Israel is truly pathological.
