Israeli Judge Resigns After Saying Some Girls 'Enjoy Rape'

An Israeli judge resigned from a government appeals board on Wednesday after public uproar over reports he had told a courtroom that some girls "enjoy rape".

Nissim Yeshaya headed a three-member panel hearing a young Israeli woman's appeal for recognition as a victim of a nationalist attack for having been raped when she was 13, in a crime blamed at the time on four Palestinians.

He had remarked during a session on the case that "there are some young girls who enjoy rape", an attorney representing the woman told Israeli radio stations on Wednesday.
