Surge In Israeli Women Signing Up For Combat Units After October 7 Mass Rapes And Sexual Mutilation

Surge In Israeli Women Signing Up For Combat Units After October 7 Mass Rapes And Sexual Mutilation

There is a full-blown effort at rape denialism ongoing from the Islamists and the left. They demand testimony from the raped women. They’re almost all dead, because the attackers murdered them. But plenty of eyewitness and forensic evidence tells the story they can’t tell.

As we have documented many times before (see bottom of post) and again below, there is overwhelming evidence of war crimes in general and particularly against Israeli women during the October 7 Massacre by Hamas, Islamic Jihad, and Gaza “civilians” who joined in. The assaults included almost-unimaginable gross sexual torture and mutilation of sexual organs.

The purpose of rape and sexual abuse as a war tactic is not just to humiliate the direct victims, but to traumatize and victimize all of society. That’s why rape and sexual abuse as a military tactic now are considered crimes against humanity. Israelis rightly are incensed and outraged. And traumatized.

But Israeli women are fighting back, literally. Israeli women, with some exemptions, are drafted into the military, but often do their ‘national service’ outside the military. Those who serve in the IDF mostly are assigned into non-combat roles. That has changed since October 7. Israeli women in the IDF increasingly want to join the fight directly against the Hamas rapists and butchers by signing up for combat units.

The Jerusalem Post reports:

IDF women are hitting new combat draft unit highs, according to November-December data issued on Wednesday.

The number of female draftees seeking combat positions in the shadow of the Gaza War is breaking every pre-war goal.

Regarding female draftees participation, border patrol units are at 116%, battle-related intelligence collection is at 133%, artillery is at 132%, air defense is at 101%, rescue units are at 122% and border police is at 119%.

An additional 12% of women draftees requested to serve in combat units since the start of the war.

In addition, two women passed the initial vetting process for the elite air force Search and Rescue Unit 669.

There is a full-blown effort at rape denialism ongoing from the Islamists and the left. They demand testimony from the raped women. They’re almost all dead, because the attackers murdered them.

Yet the evidence keeps mounting, and painfully so. There is some eyewitness testimony, plus a mountain of forensic evidence.

The Jerusalem Post reports, ‘Israeli female soldiers shot in crotch, vagina, breasts on October 7’:

Expressions of agony survived their deaths, army reservist Shari Mendes said as she described what experts saw when they identified and prepared for burial the bodies of female victims of Hamas’s October 7 massacre.

“These women arrived with their eyes open, their mouths grimacing, their fists clenched,” said Mendes, whose IDF rabbinical unit worked with the bodies, all of which were brought to the IDF’s Shura base.

“The soldiers that we dealt with had expressions of agony on their faces still,” said Mendes. “I remember one young woman whose arm was broken in so many places it was difficult for us to lay her arm in the burial shroud, her leg too. In her case, the entire left side of her body was shredded, torn apart, most likely by a grenade.” ….

“Our team commander saw several female soldiers who were shot in the crotch – intimate parts/vagina – or shot in the breast. This seemed to be a systematic genital mutilation of a group of victims,” Mendes said.

In a filmed testimonial played at the event, a survivor said she watched a terrorist who had cut off a woman’s breasts and played with them – after he had raped her.

“Our unit has seen bodies that were beheaded or had limbs cut off, mutilated,” Mendes said. “One young woman came in with no legs: they had been cut off. We saw several severed heads, one with a large kitchen knife still embedded in the neck.”

Among bodies that were not burned, the heads were often badly disfigured. “Heads and faces were covered in blood. They were shot in the eyes, face, and skull,” she said. “It was often impossible for families to be shown faces, and it seems as if mutilation of these women’s faces was an objective in their murders.” ….

Some had their “heads bashed in so badly that their brains were spilling out,” Mendes continued. “Some were shot in the head so many times at close range that their heads were almost blown off.

“In some cases, this was done after death, just out of cruelty,” she said, explaining that the absence of blood in the wounds showed that none was left in the body to drain out.

The Washington Post reports:

Authorities invited journalists this month to view a video compilation that drew from at least 60,000 clips and more than 1,000 witness statements.

“There was humiliation through rape on the morning of Oct. 7,” Israeli Police Chief Kobi Shabtai said.
“There was worse evidence that we were not able to show,” he said. “They cut limbs and genitals, they raped, they abused corpses. There were sadistic sexual acts.” ..

One woman, her face blurred and her identity concealed in a video statement to police, said she saw a gang rape at the Nova rave near Re’im during the Oct. 7 attack, as she lay down, pretending to be dead.

The witness saw a woman bleeding from the back, she said, first bent over, then pulled back up by combatants. One man pulled the woman’s long hair and raped her, the witness said, then passed her onto another man, who also raped her before shooting her in the head.
“He didn’t pick up his pants,” the witness said. “He shot her while inside her.”

Moran Yanai, 40, was kidnapped from the Nova Festival and held captive for 54 days.

#HamasTerrorists filmed the moment when they found Moran hiding in a field. As she begged for her life the monster laughed and said:

“Here, we caught one of the Jewish dogs and we will take her as a sex slave. No man wants to see what we will do to her here in the fields.”

She was released on 11/29. In her release video she can barely walk, her pelvis clearly broken.

Our minds can’t even grasp the horrors inflicted on Moran and the 17 women who remain in Hamas captivity.

Hamas are inhumane savages.

This problem goes far beyond Hamas, those who have children and encourage them to become martyrs are just as bad, maybe worse. They must also pay for what has happened.

“Israeli women in the IDF increasing want to join the fight directly against the Hamas rapists and butchers by signing up for combat units.”

Henry Higgins is gratified once again!
“Why can’t a woman /
Be more like a man?”

Good. Part of the reason so many female soldiers were taken captive or killed on Oct 7 is that the intelligence analysis post where 27 were stationed at was only a mile or 2 from Gaza.

Only a few male combat soldiers had weapons. None of women had hand guns or rifles. They were as defenseless as the civilians that were also massacred or kidnapped.

    First of all it’s insane that Israelites do not have the right to be armed

    Second, not having the right to be harmed, your living a mile or 2 from monsters?

    That’s just plain insane in the membrane

    I haven’t understood this from the get go

Every last Israeli woman should be trained and armed.

And yes, the Palis are still lying about these atrocities, saying they didn’t happen.

There’s a reason no Muslim nation wants anything to do with Palestinian “refugees.”

This feels like a virtue signal response in overdrive.

Practically speaking this is a bad idea. Hopefully the IDF can assign them more appropriate roles than combat units.

    You’re right, but the IDF has gone completely woke on this issue, and for at least the past decade has been heavily pushing for women to be in all combat roles — including in tank crews, which is insane. The religious zionist yeshivas, who supply a disproportionate number of combat troops, announced that if tank crews were going to be forced to be mixed sex, then they would have no choice but to advise all their students not to enlist. Publicly that was loudly condemned, but in private the authorities have got to be concerned about it.

      Arminius in reply to Milhouse. | December 7, 2023 at 5:10 pm

      Actually and stop me i wrong but the israelis tried women in armor but they they can’t retread tanks. Tank tracks are just too heavy.

        ahad haamoratsim in reply to Arminius. | December 8, 2023 at 8:54 am

        And my understanding is that in combat infantry they are also suffering back damage, because they are not able to carry the same weight of rucksack as male soldiers.

      Arminius in reply to Milhouse. | December 7, 2023 at 5:17 pm

      I think we are on the same page my frend

      Wrong as usual.

      Around the 8:15 mark this wonderful story is told:

      “my driver spots two terrorists on the road and reports it. I tell her to run them over. She simply runs them over and moves on, preventing another infiltration”

      “You were running over terrorists?”

      Israeli women in tanks squishing the savages, although not nearly enough.

      ahad haamoratsim in reply to Milhouse. | December 8, 2023 at 8:53 am

      Although the same people who have been going woke about, it have been wringing their hands that the increasing overrepresentation of Religious Zionists in the IDF will spell the end of Israeli democracy. (Not quite sure how they reconcile that with their simultaneous demand for universal service among the Charedim.) so this may be a feature rather than a bug and will give them additional grounds for bashing the religious Zionist camp.

    JohnSmith100 in reply to c0cac0la. | December 7, 2023 at 8:58 am

    It is hard to blame those women, their first shot will probably be terrorists respective male or female reproductive capabilities, the second a kill shot.

    Not entirely. While there is a great deal to be said for women NOT being in combat, when they are subject to this sort of horrid violence, anyway, let’s put them out there (if they so desire) and let them enact their revenge on the enemy.

    There are a lot of problems with mixed sex units. They are lesser when your front is so small and so close to home, I think.

    Israel’s situation is a little different from ours. I would still like to not see women in combat for moral and chivalric reasons.

    gonzotx in reply to c0cac0la. | December 7, 2023 at 9:45 am

    Did you by chance see the “Tank girls”?

I am generally against women in combat rolls for the obvious reasons but can’t fault the Israeli women for wanting to fight.
Start with arming 24/7 soldiers no matter what their job position is.

The one video the hostage is limping, possibly due to purposely injury to keep her from running again.

    Connivin Caniff in reply to Skip. | December 7, 2023 at 7:55 am

    I don’t know much about military abilities, but they sure look great for a new action movie.

The whole idea of innocent Palestinians is absurd. The Palestinian population is no more innocent than the populations of Germany and Japan 80+ years ago. The only reason the world is calling for Israeli restraint is because Israeli’s are Jews.

The Nazi trope should be put to rest as we have a new one: Hamas.

What, a group photo of athletic young women without a sickening tranny or two?

“Chosen Nation of God” update …

“A woman shall not wear men’s clothing, neither shall a man put on women’s clothing; for whoever does these things is an abomination to Yahweh your God.” ~ Deuteronomy 22:5

“What would that refer to contextually? Obviously things like armor, helmets, swords and bucklers. When women’s apparel is rhymed conceptually with men’s, the difference in word choice is natural, because men’s apparel in a nation about to take the promised land by force included plenty of elements that women’s did not.” ~ Bnonn Tennant

NB: This is not to say that women should never bear arms, e.g., for personal or household defense. But it is a different matter for women to take up martial attire, implements, and missions.

    Israel is a secular nation, not a religious one.

      KY Squatch in reply to bill54. | December 7, 2023 at 3:50 pm

      But I have it on good authority [Zionist Evangelicals] that contemporary Israel is “God’s Chosen Nation” …

        ahad haamoratsim in reply to KY Squatch. | December 8, 2023 at 8:57 am

        Like nearly all Jews, I try not to take my guidance on religious issues from Christian evangelicals.
        Curious what they have to say about the Chazal that, in the case of an attack, and Israel itself, even if it is a raid only to take straw and stubble, we do not exempt even a bride under the wedding canopy from military service.

BTW, does anyone else think a couple of the ladies in that picture look like Tevye’s daughters? (Fiddler On The Roof)

I think these women soldiers are not orthodox jewesses.

Women playing in men’s sports.

    henrybowman in reply to rhhardin. | December 7, 2023 at 1:58 pm

    Marksmanship is one of the few sports where women can compete on an equal footing with men with no handicapping — my experience is that in many cases they excel.

Save the last round for yourself, ladies

am not a proponent of women in combat roles–rather, depends almost completely on their training–if you’re going to permit them in leg units / recon / ct roles then train them properly and train them to kill with no mercy

in an urban environment (such as gaza) strength is not the sole determinant–focus / awarness / speed employed in combination are lethal indeed
