Prison officials at Gilboa have to take responsibility/resign for pimping female guards to jihadist

A writer at the Jerusalem Post makes a crucial point that the prison staff at the Gilboa prison basically committed gender bigotry by handing female guards over to be sexually abused by a Muslim terrorist:
When it comes to the Gilboa Prison pimping affair and the variety of comments from politicians and senior officials over the last few days, there is one thing missing: accountability.

If one were to listen to or read statements from Prime Minister Yair Lapid, Public Security Minister Omer Bar Lev or President Isaac Herzog, they might be led to believe that nobody understood how Muhammad Atallah, the Fatah terrorist held in Gilboa Prison, was even able to access the women.

[...] However, the answer as to how this happened has been given six times by six women, all alleging that they were given over, or “pimped out” to Atallah in exchange for information. Six women have alleged that their commanders knew about, allowed and even helped coordinate the plan to allow Atallah one-on-one time with young female guards.

And while it’s true that former Gilboa Prison intelligence officer Rani Basha was finally dismissed from the Israeli Prison Service last month, his name was first mentioned in relation to the affair back in 2018, more than four years before he was fired.

Not only was Basha not dismissed after a 2019 investigation found that his actions left him “no longer suitable to serve in the IPS,” he was even promoted late last year.

It wasn’t just that Basha was connected loosely to the affair either, but rather that he reportedly admitted during a police investigation that he specifically placed female security guards in the security wing, moving them from the criminal wing, following the demands of Atallah.

And what about all the direct commanders of the women who were sent to Atallah? Surely, one might assume that if they had just known about the security prisoner’s deal with senior prison staff, they would have done what they could to protect those under their command. However, according to “Yael” and “Hila” (not their real names), who both testified about the affair, their commanders knew about Atallah but did nothing.

“My commanders handed me over to that terrorist... made sure that I was left alone with him,”
recounted Hila, while Yael alleged that the complaints she filed to her commanding officers went unheeded.

While the trauma and abuse the women suffered at the hands of Atallah are horrific and unimaginable, it is not the part of the story that should shock anyone.

That a high-security terrorist serving a life sentence plus 15 years would do unthinkable things to girls is not that shocking. But that senior IPS officials, who are entrusted with the job of keeping Israeli society safe, would enable and assist him in his behavior is almost unbelievable.
And none of them should be allowed to remain in such jobs. What they did was bigoted in the extreme against the women, and if they're not willing to admit they did something akin to antisemitism, that just compounds how unsuited they truly are for these careers.

Anyway, now it's been reported, troublingly enough, that the public security minister's rejected a call by Benny Gantz to not allow female officials to have to work in guarding security prisoners:
Public Security Minister Omer Bar Lev has rejected Defense Minister Benny Gantz's request to implement an immediate ban on the practice of placing female IDF soldiers in the Israeli Prison Services (IPS) to serve as guards for Palestinian security prisoners.
One must wonder why women have to work in such a job to start with, considering most prisons usually don't appoint the opposite sex to work in these outfits. Yet Bar Lev has acted pathetically here, and only made the situation worse while not clearly condemning the male prison officials for their gender bigotry that led to the horrors.
