'Sleeping with the Enemy': Israeli ban on Judaic-Arab miscegenation

In "Israel" there is a "state-sanctioned anti-miscegenation program" and an "Anti-Assimilation Department" which "works to prevent Jewish girls from dating Muslim men." 
The program "enjoys the support of the municipality and the police."

Israel's vile anti-miscegenation squads

When the police lend support to vigilante groups hounding Jewish-Arab couples, what hope is there for coexistence?

Seth Freedman | The Guardian (UK)  |29 September 2009

While the proliferation of ultra-orthodox "vigilante police" is a stain on Israeli society, their Taliban-esque actions can at least be contextualised as the inevitable consequence of religious fundamentalism gone wild. Such communities are dominated by leaders who refuse to accommodate any form of modernization or freedom of thought into their archaic systems of governance, and the emergence of "modesty squads" is simply a manifestation of such primitive and patriarchal thinking. Regardless of the reasons behind their appearance, the groups should not be tolerated by Israel's leaders, as they contravene the most basic human rights of the state's citizens.

Israeli lawmakers have a duty to clamp down hard on the mobs' extrajudicial activities, in order to prevent a localized problem spreading from isolated religious strongholds into the rest of the country's towns and cities. Yet the ultra-orthodox (rabbinic) enforcers have good reason to challenge any efforts to rein in their sheriff's posses, given that the example set by several Israeli municipalities implies that what is sauce for the religious goose is sauce for the secular gander.

While the local authorities in Petah Tikva, Kiryat Gat and elsewhere aren't sanctioning all-out violence against girls deemed behaving inappropriately, their modus operandi is no different in intent – and the targets of their self-righteous rage no more deserving of punishment – than the girls in Meah Shearim opting out of the ultra-restrictive dress code.

According to reports in the Israeli press: "A special team in the youth department of the Petah Tikva municipality will locate [Jewish] girls in the habit of meeting with men from minorities and will assist them … 'The problem of minority men is well-known,' said the chief of the youth department, Moshe Spektor. 'Our attempts to deal with this problem are real and sincere. The municipality is making an effort to examine the matter in co-operation with the police."

Of course, the "minority" in question is the Arab community – rather than any of the Jewish minorities in Israel such as those hailing from Ethiopia, Russia or South America – since it is the spectre of intermarriage between Jews and gentiles which is the cause of such abject fear among diehard Israeli nationalists, both religious and secular alike.

As reported in Ha'aretz, Kiryat Gat's state-sanctioned anti-miscegenation program's sole aim is preventing Jewish girls from becoming romantically involved with Israeli Bedouin (Arabs): The program enjoys the support of the municipality and the police, and is headed by Kiryat Gat's welfare representative, who goes to schools to warn girls of the "exploitative Arabs."

The program uses a video entitled "Sleeping with the Enemy," which features a local police officer and a woman from the Anti-Assimilation Department, a wing of the religious organisation Yad L'ahim, which works to prevent Jewish girls from dating Muslim men.

Many Jews in Israel and the diaspora frown upon the idea of their children marrying out of the flock, some even going as far as cutting their children out of their wills and mourning them as though they had died should they take a non-Jewish partner for a spouse.

While this is by no means restricted to the Jewish faith, the idea of such proscriptions being incorporated at state level – whether against Jews, Muslims or any other category of "undesirables" – is racism reminiscent of the dark days of segregationist America and pre-enlightened European states.

This week, the Times (of London) carried an illustrative and disturbing feature on the Israeli phenomenon, demonstrating the unabashed bigotry of those behind the purity patrols... That the (Israeli) police would even deign to co-operate with such poisonous and prejudiced characters and their fantasies of racial purity is indicative of the malaise gripping certain sectors of Israeli society, both at street and state level.

Whatever the more blinkered supporters of Israel's sectarianism say, day after day more evidence piles up attesting to the shocking reality behind Israel's mask of being a tolerant, equitable and democratic "country of all its citizens."

The likes of the modesty patrols and the anti-miscegenation squads belong in the furthest recesses of history, yet apparently the Israeli authorities are not only happy to tolerate their presence, but to actively support their work as well.

Were the shoe to be on the other foot, with Jews singled out for such base racial discrimination, the same people supporting such behavior now against Arabs would rightly be up in arms and demanding justice in the name of the persecuted.

But, of course, this is Israel, and therefore somehow "different" and "unique" – the standard retorts of those unable to defend Israeli crimes with any semblance of rational debate.

And while they continue banging their drums to drown out any criticism of the Israeli state, at ground level the divisive and destructive behavior continues, and another nail is driven into the coffin of coexistence in the Holy Land. (Emphasis supplied).

Israeli vigilantes target young Arab-Jewish couples
Sheera Frenkel in Pisgat Ze’ev | Times (London, UK) | Sept. 28, 2009

It’s past 10 p.m, but work has just begun for the group of vigilantes in a small white hatchback patrolling the streets of Pisgat Ze’ev — a Jewish settlement on the outskirts of east Jerusalem.

As the car crawls through the nearly empty streets, the men peer out at couples. They say they are experts at spotting those that don’t "match."

“Stop, right there. Stop the car. Is he an Arab? That dark guy...If they are both Jewish, keep the car moving!” yells out "David," a 31-year-old Jewish settler who does not use his real name. For more than a decade, David has considered it his unofficial job to patrol the streets looking for mixed Arab-Jewish couples.

“We are protecting the Jewish people, our traditions, our heritage. Some people just get mixed up. We talk to them, explain why it’s important for Jews to be with Jews,” he said.

His group, which works with police, goes by several names, including "Fire for Judaism," is composed of up to 45 men and funded by private donations. Members say they are fighting a “growing epidemic” of Arab-Jewish dating and spend as many hours as they can on patrol.

Similar groups have formed across the country, including in the southern Negev city of Beersheba, and northern port of Haifa. In Petah Tikva, a blue-collar city in the center of Israel, the municipality has formed a unit to discourage Arab-Jewish relationships. In Pisgat Ze’ev, the growing number of Arab-Jewish couples is seen as the result of more Jewish settlements in Arab east Jerusalem.

“The problem is always with Jewish girls dating Arab men. The Arab guy comes and buys them things, treats them well. They fall for it. They can’t see what they are doing,” says David.

Sarah, who asked not to use her real name, said it is men like David who are the problem, not her Arab boyfriend, Zadar. “I’m not stupid, or gullible or looking for trouble. I’m a Jewish girl who happened to meet a guy I like, who happens to be Arab. It’s my business. We have to go other places to go on dates, places where these guys won’t find us,” she said.

In Petah Tikva, municipal workers said they only sought out under-age Arab-Jewish couples when asked to intervene by parents. “This is not a racist thing. Statistically, these girls wind up in trouble. We try to step in before real harm can be done by talking to the teens, making social workers available to them. We never use force,” a spokesman said.

David says that he too, will not use force but on a recent night out, it became clear that he was prepared to do just about anything else. At the start of his patrol he caught sight of a “known problem couple." It was a young woman, stepping into a vehicle that he said was full of Arab men.

A car chase ensued through the windy mountain roads before the vehicle got away. David took down a licence plate number and called in the incident to the police. “I am doing this for her own good. She doesn’t know what she is getting into. It’s not like these guys are offering her a future.” (Emphasis supplied).

Last time I checked God gave Adam a woman of his own flesh and bone and Adam was sharp enough to see that this was a good thing.God in the OT and Jesus in the NT warned against going after "strange flesh".We are taught in the church these days that we are now "one flesh in Christ Jesus" so that now miscegenation is a good thing - Praise Jesus!Next thing you know,the blacks are all up in the white girls,the men are holding hands and the girls are doin it together!If we don't have Jesus toothpaste we ought to,and some "Sanctified Jesus' Hometown Favorite Leavening" too!

God has always blessed marriage between men and women. No race restrictions are part of God's law. The Old Testament restrictions on the assembly had to do with not allowing formal conjuring idolatry into the assembly. Talmudism, particularly the Zohar, is the worst example of formal infidel conjuring there is. The New Testament absolutely condemns what the Zohar is composed of. The Old Testament equally condemns it. The New Testament utterly upholds marriage between any man and any woman, even Christian with non-believers. See:

1Cor:7:
12 … If any brother hath a wife that believeth not and she consent to dwell with him: let him not put her away.
13 And if any woman hath a husband that believeth not and he consent to dwell with her: let her not put away her husband.
14 For the unbelieving husband is sanctified by the believing wife: and the unbelieving wife is sanctified by the believing husband. Otherwise your children should be unclean: but now they are holy.

Jesus Christ Himself chose rather to be with harlots than with the hypocrites. The earthly ministry of Christ spoke volumes about true liberation for women from bondage imposed by men for the selfish reasons of men, which is what laws and rules against "miscegenation" are always really about.

Furthermore the utterly despicable racist Talmudic anti-gentile and Zionist anti-Arab base and raison d'être is patently obvious in this disgusting Zionist garbage.

Also, the same is equally apparent in the policies that the bought and sold American neo-Con lap dogs undertake for their Zionist masters in the genocidal application of mass hysteria and paranoia and utterly false propaganda for the criminal invasion of the Middle East by American-British led unlawful forces.

I think "strange flesh" refers to adultery and sex out of wedlock. It is not the strange flesh of a strange people; that would be dissonant view of humanity.

Good evening Michael.
In another article on the same subject,
probably the real reason for not allowing interracial dating.

http://sabbah.biz/mt/archives/2009/09/25/israeli-drive-to-prevent-jewish-girls-dating-arabs/

Towards the end of the article we read, "The Jewish soul is a precious, all-too-rare resource, and we are not prepared to give up on even a single one," says the website.

While I can't point to a verse in the Bible in support of my argument - I do not want inter-racial marriage and children as a rule - although I would not pass laws forbidding it per se.

There are biological reasons for it. Certain evolutionary doctrines would hold that differnet breeds of humans would end up being unable to reproduce with each other. This further speciation and increasing complexity in biology has a genetic basis behind it which as far as I am concerned, is proof enough. Sorry, my children come home with Africans or Asiatics - NO WAY!!!!

Dr. Rich said...

OMG, please give me a break! "evolutionary doctrines"? What doctrine would that be, I may ask? Seriously, which planet are you from? Must I remind you, the "inter-racial" marriage has given us Dan OBrien, an olympic gold medal winner in decathalon and arguably one of the best athelete in the world, Tiger Woods, considered to be the best golfer EVER, Derek Jeter, considered to be one of the best, Mariah Carey and Halle Berry (both beautiful as well as talented), Lenny Kravitz, (Jewish father!!) as well as Barrack Obama. If anything, this "mixing" of race has blessed us more than condemn the human race to extinction. BTW, Jews and the Arabs have the same Semitic roots... which nullifies the "mixing of race" arguments on the basis that they are the same "race".

have a nice day and go bury your head under the sand.

Commenting further as to the last two posts:

Halle Berry has had more plastic surgery than Cher -

Mariah Carey talented HUH???

Wow - a golfer, an athlete, and baseball player.

If I wanted to do the mix-race thing I'd take Tina Turner as she was in the 1990's. But in any event, there are sufficient differences between Caucasions/Asiatics/and Africans to warrant some biological concern to keep the races seperate and distinct. That does not mean we go to war or make it illegal - but please - your examples - Lenny Kravitz and Barack Obama. Puuleeze.

ll living organisms are getting more and more complex as time passes. There are sufficient differences between Africans/Caucasions and Asiatics, one from another - that Darwin was not even going to call each group homo sapiens - he was going to change the prefix and the suffix to the Latin name. There are those that hold that these groups of humans are different enough that as time progressed - they would not be able to bear mixed children. i.e.

Dr.Rich makes an interesting point which relates back to Genesis where the sons of God lusted after the daughters of men and these unions produced the "men of renown".Read further and we find something very interesting - God was angry at the men for this goings-on,not the (fallen) sons of God!This means these sons of God were NOT angelic supermen and it also means that the kinfolk of the daughters did nothing to disuade this unholy union (there may even have been a media blitz promoting it).This core benchmark having been violated showed that these people were worthy of destruction(for surely when that benchmark is violated so have or will all the others) - and destruction they got!In white nations particularly across the Earth we see this same benchmark being violated in increasing numbers all the time,we are seeing Genesis all over again!The individual can make excuses and justifications for miscegenation all day long thinking they stand on some holy ground or in some purity of heart,but Gods law,natural law,and the law of the jungle will trump your excuses in time - every time...

The next morning, and first and last time I landed in Israel -March 1965- the Jerusalem Post's main title was: Chief rabbinate against mixed marriages in Western Europe.
I decided then and there than I had nothing to do in a place where old barbudos could tell me who to date a zillion miles away.
Never regretted that decision either.

Dear mr. Anonymous,

I just love how you hide behind your internet anonymity and spew out senseless crap that cyber idiots usally do. First of all, I gave those examples since they are well known celebrities and you might recognize them. But if you want some more, here you go. Alexander Dumas, writer of such classics as "Three Muskateers", "Man in a iron mask" "Count of Monte Cristo", Collin Powell, former general of the Army and Secretary of the State under Bush, etc, etc. The point is, If you look hard enough, you will find these "mixed race" people who enrich our lives every day.

Now, When I write something on the internet, I try do back up all of my claims so that I dont come out looking like an idiot. I am sorry mr. Anonymous but your statement about living organisms and "sufficient differences between races" is total hogwash. I can call you out on it because it is absolutely not true. And just because you give a vague "reference" to Darwin does not validate or support your claims. I tell you what though, I will tell you what some of the worlds leading physical anthropologists (these are the scientists who study human variation)are saying about "race". Dr. Jonathan Marks is a physical anthropologist from Yale University. "Today we recognize quite strongly that race per se is not a natural biological fact about human variation." Notice that he said "we". What he meant by "we" is his fellow scientists who are in the same field. In fact, there is a consensus among all evolutionary biologists and physical anthropologists that race is not a biologically valid way to partition the human race. Go ahead, look it up. So, here is my challenge to you, Mr. Anon. Come up with your own facts to back up your statements. Thats all i ask.

Good luck.
