    Re: Israel PM under fire over son's Norwegian girlfriend

    quote from the article

    Nissim Zeev, a member of the ultra-Orthodox Shas party, told the Jerusalem Post on Sunday Netanyahu must "display national responsibility" as prime minister.

    "It's a big problem," he said. "I bet it pains him."
    "Your grandchildren, as you know, will not be Jewish," Lehava director Bentzi Gopshtain warned the Israeli premier in a Facebook post.
    Judaism is traditionally matrilineal, in which a child's religion is determined by that of its mother.

    Yair is the son of Netanyahu's third wife, Sara. Netanyahu was himself married to a non-Jewish woman, Fleur Cates, between 1981 and 1984.
    ------------
    I don't know who that bentzi is, but he is an asshole, too bad he seems to represent mainstream israeli society. Don't get me wrong, i have no love for netanyahu, he's a beligerent, disgruntled warmongerer. But that's him.

    That being said, it's quite tragic that the personal life of someone related to someone in public office is being put under scrutiny by other people. is his son in public office? If not, and if he hasn't been used by his father in political campaigns, then he's off limits.

    This kind of rigid, traditionalist thinking, which makes no attempt to remain open minded or flexible in accordance with modern necessity, is one of the reasons why countries still go to war over ideology.

    Love is freedom and if you really love someone else then your relationship should not be condemned by old world fundamentalism, regardless if you are PM of a country or an average joe.

    End the discrimination now.

    Oh dear, we'll have to wait for the ardent supporters to see the spin. This isn't new, and among the UO its a staple "value". It will probably be defended on some cultural value but its not so much racial discrimination as religious. I would suppose that being Norwegian is less important then being non-Jewish. Also, his son is 23, so why Bibi gets the criticism is questionable.

    The knuckle dragging ultra orthodox Jews here need only pay attention to who they are boning.

    I doubt this attitude is indicative of mainstream Israeli opinion.

    I'd call her more nice looking then 'a real looker' myself.

    But, each to their own.

    Besides, any son of a world famous leader could 'bag' himself a 'looker' faster then you can say 'groupie'.

    That he is dating someone outside of his religion against public acceptance...now that I'll give him 'kudos' for.

    No, it's the same mentality the Nazis had. You know.. pure blood..
    Every normal man must be tempted at times to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag, and begin to slit throats. It is inaccurate to say that I hate everything. I am strongly in favor of common sense, common honesty, and common decency. This makes me forever ineligible for public office. H.L Mencken
