1. Duncan Long: Too many suffer even more than they should
From: Duncan Long <duncan@duncanlong.com>
Re: Psalm 144 continued/ part two: Rape Attacks

Thank you for sharing this - these are the facts that need to be told. Too many suffer even more than they should, doubly victimized, because of poor advice about how to face an aggressor. --D



2. Question on Rape Attacks in the Street

In a busy city like today what happens when a rape happens in the street
& nobody hears her scream?





Brit-Am Reply:
Shalom,
I know about the subject from what News services put out or from different articles or anecdotes etc.
In other words, not very much.
Every rule has its exceptions. Shouting or screaming will often be enough.
It is an undeniable indication of feared coercion.
A good portion of rapes occur between people who are already acquainted in the privacy of private homes etc.
Shouting clarifies the situation. We live in a promiscuous age. Many rape cases are borderline happenings or later may be made to look that way.
Shouting out even from inside a building where nobody else seems to be around is often effective.

The Bible clearly indicates that shouting for help is required, Deuteronomy 22:23 -27.
It may be that the person attacked fears for their life and does not shout.
Shouting however is more likely to save one from injury than to cause it.

Police reports say that more than 80% of the time when a woman makes a climate it is justified.
Again 80% of the time no complaint is made though it should be. This applies even in areas where Police authorities etc function as they should.
A small minority of cases do exist in which the woman was the initiating party but somehow in her mind she was coerced and blames the man.
More often she may have been coerced but after that fact thinks herself an accomplice.
In Jewish Law as long as the beginning was by force it is considered rape even if the victim acquiesced later.
We also have the story of Joseph in the Bible in which Joseph was falsely accused. There are also the accounts concerning Dinah the daughter of Jacob and the story of Tamar daughter of David.

At all  events may none of us ever experience such happenings not to ourselves or to any of those around us.
We repeat if it does happen the attacked person should contact a local rape crisis center even if they do not intend to involve the police. These crisis Centers are trained to be discreet, sensitive, and provide needed medical and psychological attention if requested. It is important to receive medical attention as soon as possible after the incident.
These days males (especially young ones) are also liable to be sexually victimized and they too should seek assistance despite the shame they may feel.

"Helleno-Yishurin. The Hebrew Origin of Greek Legends"
by-John R.
Salverda

Danaans by-John R. Salverda
http://www.britam.org/salverda/danaan.html
Extract:
"the myth of Lynceus and Hypermnestra" or, otherwise known as, the myth of 'The Danaids.' The Jacobites were not united in their war against the Canaanites, as we have pointed out the Danites did not participate in this war, and they were admonished by Deborah for their complacency, so were the people of Gilead who also apparently sat out the hostilities. The term "Gilead" was an often used alternative name for the phrase "upper Manasseh," which makes a plausible origin for the name "Hypermnestra," for the Hebrews were fond of assigning a figurative woman to represent national or tribal groups, and the word "hyper," is the usual Greek term indicating "above" or "beyond," as in beyond a river. Also, as if there weren't enough coincidences between these two stories already, the Greek name "Lynceus" means the same thing in Greek, that the Hebrew name "Laish" [of Dan] means in Hebrew, namely a "small lion."
