A female Egyptian lawyer has very publicly recommended that Palestinian and Israeli Arab men begin sexually harassing Israeli Jewish women as a means of pressuring them to leave the region and thereby bringing about the demise of the Jewish state.
In an interview on the pan-Arab Al Arabiyah television network late last month, Nagla Al-Imam said that Israeli women "are fair game for all Arabs, and there is nothing wrong with this...this is a new form of resistance."
In the interview, which was recently translated by the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI), Al-Imam said her proposal does not include rape - which she claimed the terrorists are too "moral" to contemplate - but rather the threat of rape made palpable by overt sexual harassment.
In its reporting on the interview, Israel National News noted that ever since signing a peace treaty with Israel in 1979, Egypt has been widely portrayed in the US and Europe as a "moderate" Arab nation dominated by secular people who reject violence and Islamic extremism.
