Jail delay for Arab 'rapist' who posed as Jew

    An Israeli court has postponed the sentence of an Arab man convicted of rape by deception after he had consensual sex with a Jerusalem woman while posing as a Jew.

    The high court also called for Sabbar Kashur’s remand conditions to be eased. The 30-year-old married father has been under house arrest for two years.

    Last month Mr Kashur was sentenced to 18 months in jail for presenting himself as a Jewish bachelor to a woman he met and then had sex with soon after in a nearby building.

    The woman said she would not have consented if she had known he was not Jewish.

    A judge admitted that it was not "a classical rape by force" but ruled that her consent was based on false premises.

    The unprecedented sentence has provoked widespread criticism.
