Arab 'deceit rape' charge defended

Director of support centre says man "raped" Israeli woman by lying about his ethnicity.

    An Israeli court has jailed an Arab man in the country for 18 months for "rape by deception" after having consensual sex with an Israeli woman.

    Sabbar Kashur had falsely introduced himself to the woman as a Jewish bachelor looking for a long-term relationship before they had sex.

    The woman later accused him of rape after finding out he was Arab.

    Merav Mor, a director of resource development at the Association of Rape Crisis Centers in Israel, defended the court sentencing in an interview with Al Jazeera.  

    Speaking from Tel Aviv, she said that the sex between the two was not consensual because Kashur gave the woman false information.

    No, it wasn't because of WMDs, democracy or Iraqi oil. The real reason is much more sinister than that.
