Anna (fake name), 23, Rotating around the world for eight years with a burning secret that puts her. For years she kept quiet, But two months ago something crack in the wall. Anna ran an article we published on a community activist vegans based on testimony of sexual assaults committed serially community youngsters, And decided to contact us. “I was in the emergency room with my grandfather when I saw the article. I realize that telling someone vegan community party girls and begins to read. I am reading, See who say it looks nice on the outside, Calls on its behavior, He captures girls disadvantaged homes. This epic, It's not epic? I continue to call and tell myself this epic. what are, He did it for more girls? It made me feel bad. I could not finish reading. I felt weak. I fell on my grandfather's bed. I felt I was collapsing. Understanding that I am not the only one, Who invented it, I'm not guilty. I have a million thoughts went head. Sent active in the field of sexual harassment and told her ‘I know him. This guy did the same to me. He hit me too‘”. Parallel to this appeal, Anne gathered her courage and filed a police complaint.
Testimonies given us over the years shows that Afi Brnr, son 26, His name was revealed for the first time, Made contact with young girls vegan community is in a position of weakness, And used against them a wide range of abusive. In some cases degradation, Emotional manipulation and terror, Many of them also includes forced labor and sexual violence is difficult.
Anna knew Brenner-2009, When he was only 15, The age 18. Is among the few who knew him outside the vegan community. “We met at a meeting of bloggers in Dizengoff Center. Dozens of teenagers were coming to these meetings. We continue on to Gan Meir Park to talk, Epic talked a lot about veganism and animal. Once he came to me and asked me for a cigarette. When I gave him, He broke it and said he did not want to smoke. We hardly knew then. I was shocked and wanted to go away. Before I moved, I told him that I have a box full, So What's the Deal? He said he would take me all cigarettes and tear them. I grabbed the box strong and went to sit with a group of people I know“.
It was her first interaction with Brenner. Anna says that most young people who came to these meetings socioeconomic status were from families–Economy Not Good. She herself came from such. “We lost children without parents to look after us, Because they work too hard. I was the inner child. Meandering between internal and hostels. Effie knew exactly where to look for girls“. soon afterwards, They had sex in a public park. “I met him by chance in Jerusalem. I worked downtown after work I used to walk the streets and drink. We encountered one second, We went into the garden and lay there Sucker. I later learned that he had boasted that he had me in a public park“.
After that night has lost connection with Anne Brenner. Two years later returned to speak on Facebook. “In the same year, I graduated from boarding school and went to live at home. I was lost, I was not happy at home, But I did not have another place to live. I told him one of these impermanence Facebook conversations I needed a break from home and parents, Hard for me“.
Preparation for Yom Kippur, Five years ago,, Brenner spread his network. He told his friends went to Anna and he keeps them on Tel Aviv apartment and offered her to come to rest there on Yom Kippur. “I asked him ‘Every two days, Are you sure?’ He said yes, We have a lot to talk about, Looks full movies, Eat delicious vegan food and vegan lectures will see me. He used to get angry at me for vegetarian and vegan only. I probably would be interesting conversations, He has a lot of knowledge on the subject. I wanted a friendly meeting, No more. I thought he would probably want to kiss me, Will I, But I do not want more. I arrived in Tel Aviv, He took me in his car with friends. We went to eat hummous place before fasting entered, And Mcshtiisbno He barely looked at me. He and his friends watched the girls who were walking and compared them. When we got there, As soon as he closed the door, His energy changed and became disgusting. He began to try to put me. He did not care what I want, He did not care about me. Even hug and kiss him I did not want the light of what it was when we were sitting in hummus. I told him I was thirsty and tired and want to rest.Once we saw a movie and ended he started to approach me. We kissed and then he became aggressive. He undressed me quickly, I put my fingers aggressively and it hurt. I told him I did not want to and stop. He went on to say to me ‘moment, We just started‘. I was sick and did not want. He tried to penetrate me and it was very painful. I tell him it hurts and I do not want. He tried to convince me that he would be gentle and try. When I say it again ‘No‘ He tells me ‘a little bit more, I finish‘. I say again that I do not want, But then he no longer applies and continues. At the end I moved away and manages to stop it. Then he begins to tell me ‘The Holocaust makes me, You do not understand what you're doing to me, How hard a man as he stands‘. I told him Siaonn. He continued with that I do it at least bronze Holocaust has, Then he just stood over me, Held my head forcefully pushing his penis into my mouth. He began to move it. I almost vomited. I did not say anything. I thought I had finished and that, And then he would stop bothering me. Even better to that than the other stuff that hurt me. When finished, He acts as if nothing had happened and telling me to go down with dogs. We go back and go to sleep“.
The next morning, Brenner begins again. “I told him I was tired and wanted to sleep. I closed my eyes and pretended to be asleep to avoid it.After that I wanted to sleep with him, He ignored me for several hours, Angry with me. I understand that if I do not go out of the apartment something bad will happen to me, He will become more aggressive. I started looking for a place to move there. This Yom Kippur, and I can not go anywhere. I called my brother and asked him to check with his friends from boarding school who live in Tel Aviv if we can come to them. I spoke to him in Russian Shafi did not understand. After the conversation I began to gather my things to go, And when he noticed he grabbed my arm strength, Hurt, He forcibly sat me down. I got up to him and tried to open the door. Felt threatened. Is very thin but tall and strong and I'm only fifty meters. When he grabbed me forcefully realized how much power it has. that was scary. I finally open the door and get out. It was the land and at the end of the path has a gate. Even at the gate he grabs me and I tell him ‘leave me‘. He told me that if I walk out of here not to talk to him more and not to write it on Facebook. I told him Cool,As it did not mean. When I got friends of my brother blocked him on Facebook. A few months ago he sent me a friend request from newly opened. I looked at it in shock. How much courage this man has done as all ordinary, I did not like anything?”.
I thought it was sweet
Act as if everything was normal, If we do not do anything unusual, Turning out as part of the method of Brenner. Yael (fake name), a girl 22, Met him a year and a half. She came to us after an article. “I knew my nose vegan community. We were among acquaintances friends for many years.He always boasted how much he Vegan. He knew there was a bar I really love vegan, And also said it was his favorite place. Epic can say build things they want to hear. As we approached, I told him that I was allergic to dust. Before I came to, He Sifr Li how he cleaned the house for me. I thought it was sweet. We went only a few times, So when we come to it, I told him I was not ready to lie down. I repeated that I did not want sex“.
But her desire not matter Brenner. “He became extremely aggressive and forced himself on me. He wanted me to take off my clothes and did not want. He tried to convince me and finally just took off his shirt“. Yael soon found herself lying on her back. “He sat on me and pushed his penis between my breasts and masturbated while I was lying there, Silent, And waiting for it to end“, She tells. After that night Yael severed ties with Epic.
Along stories conspicuous gap between how Brenner presents itself, Justice warrior, Like human and animal, And how he does in women. Brenner driving wave ideologies which he advocates also facing these women. Dawn, Was a partner of AFI what it considers abusive relationship (More on that later), Previously told how he used to introduce himself as a feminist: “He spoke sometimes in the feminine, In the language of giving representation to women. He was going to demonstrations related to gender equality and women's protests“. Several years ago, went further and published a post in Facebook Fminisitit–Vegan, Where he wrote strongly Ngd Aons and sexual violence - for cows. He began by writing raping of women is one of the vilest acts to him and explained that the consumption of dairy products is actually supporting rape cows, Their bull sperm is inserted “without agreement“, And here it is cruel violence.
at the age 18 Brenner was seniors letter, And declared that he would not serve the army “The policies of repression in the Occupied Territories“. Many of his pictures on Facebook is embracing Pets Welcome, Some have been photographed with his dog.
Brenner attended activities again“The, Anonymous, Association for the Abolition of Vivisection and Animal Liberation Front. It managed to reach many women and create strong relationships Mnifolitibiot. During the preparation of the report turned out that whenever they began to notice escapades, He moved to the next vegan organization. For example, in-2013 At one party, the Movement 269 Held a list that prohibits the entry Brenner and several other men.Mary Hope, One of the founders 269, This was formulated by the list of those denied entry, Recalls: “We started to hear it bothers women booths and women retire explanation for him. He would say things bots women. I was also uncomfortable with. Always invites him home, ‘Boai Ali see a movie‘. Even when I told him that it was inappropriate, He goes on. When voltage was standing next to him and talking with him. There is always a sense it comes to activities to start with girls“.
Brenner found that tracing the pattern began in his youth. Gilly (fake name), Today twenties, Knew him when they were 15. “As part of a personal commitment I started to volunteer assistance center for youth at risk. Effie was not part of youth at risk, But those who come just because there Member‘God. I saw that people avoid him and did not understand why. Is a skinny guy with a face that looked innocent and it is confusing. One time I got to the center, I sat outside with a. Effie came and just sat down between us. I remember what I wore today, Leggings and high black tunic. The three of us talking and suddenly I felt something was going under my tunic. It takes me several seconds to realize it was the hand of AFI.What is amazing, Every time that his hand was under my shirt he continues to talk as usual. I tried to take his hand, But he really insisted on leaving it. I had to use force to remove it. I'm still shocked and trying to understand what happened and think how to tell my girlfriend let's get out of here, Then I again feel his hand, And this time deeper. Is already approaching panties and strokes. When I try to take it out again, I find it harder. It really fight it. He continues to talk as usual and suddenly turns around and stares at me with a look and Scary Psycho. I finally managed to remove his hand and said to my friend ‘Bowie‘. We get up, and she whispers to me ‘What is it that stalker?’ I tell her ‘Then I saw what he did to me?’. she does not answer. I realized that he probably did the same with her other arm“.
Dawn (fake name), Recognizing the Brenner when she was 14 The age 18, Became his partner for two years. She left the relationship emotionally wounded. “Effie was manipulative. There is no such thing that I want to sleep with him. He makes my face or turns around and gives me back. I had to beg to come back to talk to me. It made me have sex with him even when I wanted. There were times I woke up that he penetrated me. It scarred me anything. It was helplessness. I did not tell him anything, I thought I should give it. When I wanted to break up with him, He threatened that he will Internet sex videos we shot. Other times threatened to commit suicide. It took me months to succeed break up with him“.
Throughout the relationship Dawn feels threatened. “He was very domineering. When he finds out I smoked it was tearing me cigarettes and shouting.Every time I wanted to smoke, I was hiding. At some point,, I was hospitalized for eating disorders. He came to visit and said that hospital vegan he knows will look after me and make sure I eat only vegan. Hospitalization was not allowed to be vegan, The theory that therapeutic claims so that part of the Eating Disorder. You know what this anxiety to eat and to think that someone who knows the Epic Look I eat something that is not allowing? One of his visits after we broke up, he took me aside and told me ‘You owe me a kiss that I came to visit you‘.I kissed him because he managed to make me think that I owed him. I wanted to vomit.

Two years later, When he wanted to join the camp again, I was a counselor and asked those in charge did not come because I was afraid apprenticeship Security. I knew he was a man without borders, But I did not realize the extent of his actions“.
He started yelling at me: What do you mean you do not want?
