Israel women trafficking soars

Thousands of Eastern European and Russian girls lured to Tel Aviv and enslaved into prostitution
Up to - 20,000 trafficked women in Israel and more than 280 brothels in Tel Aviv ...
As customers - demands for slave trade workers who do not have HIV or AIDS ...

"Your male and female slaves are to come from the nations around you; from them you may buy slaves. You may also buy some of the temporary residents living among you and members of their clans born in your country, and they will become your property. You can will them to your children as inherited property and can make them slaves for life....." (Leviticus 25:44-46)

There are an estimated 20,000 female sex slaves forced into prostitution in Tel-Aviv each year. According to a report released in 2005 by the Knesset Subcommittee on Trafficking in Women, between 10,000 and 15,000 women had been smuggled into Israel over the previous four years to work as prostitutes. According to the report, the women, who were mostly from the former Soviet Union, were sold at public auction for as much as $10,000 and forced to work up to 18 hours a day. On average, the women received only three percent of the money they earned from prostitution, and many were raped and beaten. Most of the women had been smuggled over the Egyptian border and lured from Russia and Eastern Europe on false promises of secretarial jobs.

Between 3,000 and 5,000 women have been smuggled into Israel in the past four years to work as prostitutes, according to a parliamentary inquiry.
The report described how the women are sold at public auctions for as much as $10,000 and forced to work up to 18 hours a day. On average the women receive only three percent of the money they earn from prostitution, the report said. Most of the women are from the former Soviet Union. Many are raped and beaten as they are smuggled into Israel over the Egyptian border, the inquiry found.

Attitudes

Zehava Galon, of the opposition Yahad Party, presented the report to the speaker of the Knesset on Wednesday. "We began this inquiry to investigate the extent of this phenomenon and raise political awareness of their plight and the brutal nature of the trafficking of women in this time of globalisation," said Ms Galon. She said the biggest challenge in addressing the plight of women in the sex trade was changing the attitudes of the Israeli public and police.

The inquiry also criticised judges for passing light sentences, sometimes only community service, for men running prostitution rings. The report called for minimum jail terms of 16 years for those convicted. London-based rights group Amnesty International and the US State Department have also reported an alarming increase in prostitution rings in Israel.

Prime Minister Gordon Brown,

Presidential candidates who all hold Israel dearer than the USA,

For once be honest and tell us if this is the Israel you love and for which you gladly sacrifice your young generation.

It's almost misleading to call these poor souls 'women'. They are mostly teen agers from poor families who are lured by local networks to get training in Israel and sent to W. European countries as secretaries, where they can send money back home. Once in Azrael's hands, their passports and ID papers are taken away and asked to work in brothels to pay for all the costs, which of course never ends.

At some point they are sold to their overseas networks and sent to a rich Arab country or Japan. As a few years old estimate, Israel makes one billion dollars a year out of white sex slavery. Those sustained injuries on face during their work are tossed at police as illegal immigrants and sent to the country of origin. The reason authorities in Israel are not serious about this problem is that they (police) form a significant portion of the customers.

Israel the beckon of democracy appears to be nothing but a black hole.

In my experience, many of the eastern-european women have also to blame themselves for their abysmal fate in the western and israeli brothels.
"Most of the women had been smuggled over the Egyptian border and lured from Russia and Eastern Europe on false promises of secretarial jobs".
Actually many women are aware of the risks, but in order to fulfill their dreams of luxurious lifestyles and the endless availability of cosmetics and good clothes they willingly let themselves fall in the trap. Ultimately the culprit is the TV in their home countries, presenting western-made images of glossy lifestyles that don't even exist for the greatest majority of western people, but that seem also within easy reach. The eastern women are greedy and easily fall in the trap. They should also blame themselves for their misfortunes.

East European governments are corrupt as much as the west and they would rather see their women go in slave trade than to deal with their issues at home. World as a whole has sunk too deep to be properly managed by anyone at this point in time. People have lost faith and gained servanthood not to God but to Satan. Now everyone is paying price for it. What I see as greatest Irony is that Jews whose claim on Holy Land is Biblical that is "God given right" to them are showing their gratitude by spreading such abominable practice in the holy land. Its obvious that their claim is not valid even by the Biblical standard because if it is you would see holy land flourish with piety and moral splendor. "You will recognize them by the fruits they bare."
