Outgoing chief rabbi, Brig. Gen. Rafi Peretz, of the Israeili Defense Forces, who is stepping down after six years in the position is being replaced. And, his successor, Rabbi Col. Eyal Karim’s appointment is being met with backlash — as he is outspoken for allowing soldiers to rape women during wartime.

Karim, who was announced on Monday as the intended new IDF chief rabbi, has provoked controversy with previous misogynistic statements, such as opposing female conscription and implying that rape was permissible in times of war.

According to Ynet News, Karim has been serving as the head of the Rabbinate Department in the Military Rabbinate. He is an alumnus of the Bnei Akiva Nachalim and the Ateret Cohanim yeshivas, and he served previously as a combat paratrooper, eventually commanding their elite reconnaissance unit, before taking a break from the military and eventually returning to its rabbinate.

In 2012, Karim’s controversy started when the Hebrew religious website KIPA, asked him, in the light of certain biblical passages, if IDF soldiers were permitted to commit rape during wartime despite the general understanding that such an act is widely considered repugnant.

His answer enraged many Israelis.

“Although intercourse with a female gentile is very grave, it was permitted during wartime (under the conditions it stipulated) out of consideration for the soldiers’ difficulties,” he wrote. “And since our concern is the success of the collective in the war, the Torah permitted [soldiers] to satisfy the evil urge under the conditions it stipulated for the sake of the collective’s success.”

In other words, soldiers can rape innocent women during times of war in order to keep their morale up.

The head of the Knesset Committee on the Status of Women and Gender Equality, MK Aida Touma-Sliman (Joint Arab List), said, “Col. Karim’s ruling on permitting raping non-Jewish women is similar to the fatwa of a murderous organization that’s not so far from Israel’s borders. I will contact the attorney general and oppose the appointment, and I call on female and male members of Knesset to join my request.”

The chairperson of Na’amat —Movement of Working Women & Volunteers, Galia Wolloch, said, “Anyone who thinks that rape is okay as a morale-booster for soldiers, so long as it’s of gentile women, cannot lead the army to good moral and spiritual places.”

When he is not advocating for the rape of women, Karim is outspoken about refusing to allow women in the IDF.

Karim wrote in 2002 that it was explicitly forbidden.

“In a situation such as the one during the War of Independence, in which there was a real pikuah nefesh [matter of life or death] of the Jewish people, women also participated in the defense of the nation and country, even though the situation was not so modest,” he wrote. “But in our era, we do not live with a real threat to our survival.

“And because of the liable damage to the modesty of the girl and the nation, the great rabbis and the Chief Rabbinate have ruled that the enlistment of girls to the IDF is entirely forbidden.”

Karim is also outspoken about women singing at military events. If a woman sings at an event, he claims, men should not have to attend as it is repugnant.

According to the Times of Israel, the IDF on Monday responded to allegations against Karim, saying the colonel “wishes to clarify that his words were only uttered in response to a theoretical hermeneutical question, certainly not to a practical halachic question.

“Rabbi Karim never wrote, said, or even thought that an IDF soldier is permitted to sexually harm a woman during wartime,” the IDF Spokesperson’s Unit added in a statement.

Except that he did — as evidenced by the above quote.

Meretz party leader Zehava Galon said that Karim is not “suitable to be the rabbinic authority of the army, in which tens of thousands of women serve, and is not suitable to represent Jewish morality in any form.” She also condemned “his frightening, racist, and inflammatory statement” regarding wartime rape.

Yesh Atid leader Yair Lapid urged Karim to disavow his remarks about women’s enlistment, saying, according to the Times of Israel, that without a public statement to that effect “he cannot be the military chief rabbi.”

“Regarding the reports that he said that beautiful gentile women can be raped during wartime, it appears this is not his opinion,” Lapid continued. “But if he thinks this, not only may he not be the chief military rabbi, he can’t even be a rabbi.”

    More proof their so called religion is fabricated no God would condone raping women of other faiths regardless of what he claims. What a pig feed him to the fish

  • Mike

    Well that pretty much puts the nail in the coffin of the jews in my book if their religious text says that then it is no religion of God, but of satan the evil serpent.

  • ReverendDraco✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ ᵃᶜᶜᵒᵘᶰᵗ

    All of the so-called “revealed” religions are cut from the same cloth – they all have their basis in the hallucinations of illiterate cave-dwellers drunk on fermented camel piss (which explains why the most fervent followers are alcoholics). . . yet some people are so insane as to think that there are any significant differences between them.

  • GAZOO

    This fucking guy needs to be brutally raped.

  • RandyJ/ProudSurvivor

    Thank you Rabbi, for clearing up my doubts about Judaism as a whole.

  • Broos

    These A$$ $OUL Israelites have been practicing this as ‘Yahweh’s will’ for 4000 years – Numbers 31:17.-18. :
    17. Now kill all the boys. And kill every woman who has slept with a man,
    18. but save for yourselves every girl who has never slept with a man.
    Afford the zealots the ‘spec They DESERVE.

        Unfortunately they’re usually the ones in charge of the religion.

      • posercom

        That’s besides the point. The Talmud advocates extreme violence against the “Goyim” by Jews. Christianity does not condone violence at all towards anyone.

    Nuke the whole middle east. I mean all of it. Israel, iran, turkey, syria, Saudi arabia, egypt, iraq, uae, every swinging dick, loddy doddy everybody. Nuke em twice if necessary. That whole shiithole region should be made into glass. What a bunch of lunatics!

    I hate to sound anti-semitic but I think Adolf missed a few of the really crazy ones.

    • It is not Paranoia

      It’s not anti-semitic to hate some fucking jewish guy who approves raping women.

      So don’t worry.

  • Frank

    Da Jooz just forfeited any claim to moral high ground over their Arab enemies. They’re all just different sides of the same counterfeit coin. Mencken was right, religion is the greatest fomenter of hatred the world has ever seen.

    • Al Mather

      Because one Rabbi interpreted and explained a passage pertaining to war time “spoils” in the Torah a certain way …. ALL JEWS forfeit the moral high ground over their enemies????
      I agree with your sentiment on Religions… but not your logic.

      • Frank

        By putting him in a position of responsibility in the Israeli military they are de facto condoning what he has publicly stated. Instead he should be marginalized and ignored, and whatever is required to strip him of his ordaination as a rabbi. Israel claims to be the true Jewish state and by extension the spokesman for world Jewry. Their tolerance for and political elevation of such an individual speaks not well of either Israel or Jews in general.

        • Al Mather

          Yeah..great Frank… except he is still just one guy..interpreting a hypothetical justification of an ancient passage in the Torah…not a modern condoning of rape..and it’s.being condemned by lots of groups in the Israeli government… ALL JEWS are not suddenly stripped of any moral standing they may or may not have had. It’s a tiny little gotcha moment… not a definition of an entire people.

      • Razedbywolvs

        Are you calming moral superiority over anyone you hate?

    One might suppose the reverse is true then. Can you imagine the hullabaloo if a Muslim cleric said the same thing?

  • Tatiana Covington

    Religious garbage! Throw out all religions, Judaism included.

  • Ken, Megapolis

    I can understand, even semi support a group of bored Israeli youths hanging about a street corner, attacking and raping a pretty blonde German tourist.
    But what if we are talking about a MANUFACTURED war serving the interests of mainly the Military Industrial Complex and their lust for money, oil and hatred of Islam and Communism?
    Do you see my point that there are many different types of war?
    Would the Rabbi please clarify his position in a little more depth?
    Shalom to all.

    • Johnny Sizzlechest

      You “semi support” raping “a pretty blonde tourist”…wtf is wrong with you Ken. Oh wait, you’re jewish, does that explain it? Sounds like you and the rabbi are cut from the same cloth.

  • Clam Mato

    What a dirt bag.

    Headline made me think of the movie “Contracted”.

  • Meltonmark

    Tell me again….where did that figure of 6 million come from…? Perhaps someone can produce the FACTUAL evidence?
    [The 6m number was produced during the Nuremberg trials, obtained from German prisoners. Considering the hideous tortures inflicted upon those prisoners by their mainly Jewish interrogators, it never should have been allowed as evidence. Other than this travesty, I have never actually found out how the number was derived.]
