Israeli courts taking sexual harassment to new heights

In the United States, employers and even office workers are often afraid to court the opposite sex for fear of sexual harassment allegations. In Israel, such innocent relations qualify as rape.

That is the charge being leveled against the mayor of Kiryat Malachi, who engaged in clearly consensual sex with one of his female employees. The relationship lasted for a long time, and the woman often drove to the mayor’s apartment by herself. The only way to describe their relationship other than love is prostitution, since the woman received benefits at work in exchange for sex.
