Hebrew University Leftist Prof Suspended for Molesting Students - had been author of the infamous "Lack of Rape proves Racism" Thesis

1. Leftist anti-Israel Sociologist Eyal Ben-Ari (Hebrew University)
suspended for "Inappropriate Relations" with Students

Same professor supervised the thesis that claimed that the absence of
rape of Arabs by Jewish soldiers proves Jews are racists

Why was Ben-Ari not suspended for rape?

Many years too late, the Hebrew University finally got around to
suspending far-leftist anti-Israel Professor of Sociology Eyal
Ben-Ari. He was the supervisor of that famous MA thesis that "proved"
that the reason that no Arab women are raped by Jewish soldiers is
that the Jews are such racists. Ben-Ari had been accused of numerous
women graduate students of raping them and molesting them. I guess he
was just proving that he was not a rapist. In any case, he has now,
at long last, been suspended, but for "inappropriate relations," and
not for rape. Why not? Inappropriate relations sounds like a romance
with a goat.

In my opinion the most remarkable part of the Ben-Ari saga is that he
used Hebrew University research funds to purchase vibrators to give as
gifts to his female students. Really. Earlier reports concerning the
affair appear here: You can
see a picture of his vibrator here:

The full report on his suspension follows:

Hebrew U. professor suspended for inappropriate relations with students

Ben-Ari was also determined to have improperly agreed to advise a
female doctoral student despite the fact that they were known to have
been involved in a close relationship.

By Asaf Shtull-Trauring
Eyal Ben-Ari, a professor of sociology and anthropology at Hebrew
University in Jerusalem, has been suspended for two years without pay
after a disciplinary panel ruled that he had engaged in inappropriate
relations with three female students who were under his tutelage.
The panel ruled that Ben-Ari had exploited his position of authority
to engage in intimate relations, including offering to share a hotel
room with a student when they were both abroad for an academic
Ben-Ari was also determined to have improperly agreed to advise a
female doctoral student despite the fact that they were known to have
been involved in a close relationship. Such conduct "was unbecoming of
a faculty member," the panel said.
The verdict comes three years after allegations first surfaced
alleging that Ben-Ari had extorted sexual favors from female students
over a number of years. However, he was not convicted of sexual
Ben-Ari will not be permitted to begin his sabbatical within the next
two years. In addition, he will not be allowed to receive research
funds or to operate research budgets.
The disciplinary panel also ruled that Ben-Ari will continue to
receive his salary until the end of the current academic year and to
advise doctoral students.
In July 2008, police launched an investigation against Ben-Ari after
the university received anonymous complaints from a number of
students. Prosecutors did not file an indictment against Ben-Ari due
to lack of evidence and an expired statute of limitations.
Two years ago, the university conducted its own disciplinary review,
during which some of the complainants came forward to give statements.
The transgressions for which Ben-Ari was convicted took place between
1996 and 2003.
"The disciplinary panel determined that Prof. Ben-Ari's actions are
grave and they inflicted significant harm to students and the Hebrew
University," the university said in a statement.
Ben-Ari's attorneys released a statement in which they stated that
their client was vindicated.
"After a long, drawn-out disciplinary process, Prof. Eyal Ben-Ari was
ultimately acquitted of most of the actions of which he was accused,
including all allegations of sexual harassment," they wrote. "The
monstrous image which others tried to pin on him and which was fueled
by lies has been blown to smithereens. The disciplinary panel itself
acknowledged the suffering that was caused to Professor Ben-Ari as a
result of the baseless accusations against him."

2. You probably heard that Beer Sheba was hit yesterday by Grad
rockets fired by our peace partners in Gaza. As usual, Israel will
respond by turning the other cheek and hoping to wait out the Hamas
until it runs out of ammunition. You will all be relieved to hear that
the rockets did NOT strike the homes of Neve Gordon, Oren Yiftachel or
David Newman.
