I have been quiet so long – suffering in silence, reading the news, hearing the filtered, censored updates of where Malka Leifer is holding,
The day she was arrested in Israel rocked my world, in a good and difficult way. Difficult because it brought on a fresh wave of emotions and triggers and good because finally, FINALLY the Jewish Orthodox world will give validation that I and many others were horrifically abused by this smiling charismatic monster.
What can I say except that as the months roll by and the manipulative woman that us students all knew so well is playing her games again, albeit at a much higher level and with a bulldog of a lawyer by her side who vowed that she will never return to Australia.
The nightmares, constantly, the days where food does not matter, the constant flashbacks every time her name is mentioned , the shroud of secrecy because you don’t want to be ostracised for wanting justice to prevail. The copious tears and alternating feelings of utter numbness. In this case, time does not heal, time is not healing. Time is prolonging the dreadful, all-consuming pain as month after month after month of this perilous heart wrenching journey, that smiling sick woman evades justice yet again and again.
It has been 18 months since Malka Leifer was arrested!! Where is Justice? Where is the court system that is on the victim’s side? Where is Malka Leifer? Why is she allowed to hide behind her supposed panic attacks? Is rape not considered crime enough to be trialled?? Where is justice?
I cannot go on much longer, life revolves around the closure a trial will provide.
