    Unfortunately, a lot of women and girls are trafficked to and through Israel. Ukrainians and Russians are involved with their counterparts in Israel and it seems that this topic never comes up in the news. Where is the news story on the woman found dead? Anyone read or hear about that? No? It would seem logical that the reason is that to even report on it (thanks Ha'aretz) would acknowledge that the problem exists, and that would be counter to the image the state wants to project to the world. It is vitally important to face this issue - not hide it because the perpetrators are Jews!! - and take steps to end this inhumane practice that seems to be so deep-seated (due to looking the other way). Sweeping it under the rug only insures that it becomes more entrenched. And no one likes to admit this, but those pimps may give your child (little angel) drugs one day....
