In Israel, lying about your race can make you a rapist

In Israel, a Palestinian man told a Jewish woman he was also Jewish. Then they had sex. Now he’s been convicted of rape. This is the kind of episode a really good writer could turn into a beautiful novel that meditates on race, religion, and the way ancient conflicts shape our modern world.

It’s also a bunch of BS, man.
