From ARUTZ SHEVA 7:
The recently exposed relationship between Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's son Yair and his non-Jewish girlfriend, Norweigan Sandra Leikanger, has set off a wave of debate over the question of assimilation within the Jewish state. The two study together at the Herzliya Interdisciplinary Center.
Shas Chairman Aryeh Deri commented on the reports in an interview with the hareidi-religious radio station Kol Barama, noting that while he doesn't like to talk about personal topics, the relationship of the prime minister's son isn't just a personal matter, because Netanyahu is a "symbol of the Jewish people."
"I know friends of mine who invest tens of millions and more, hundreds of millions to fight assimilation in the world," commented Deri. "If G-d forbid it's true, woe to us. ...I hope it's not true."
Deri commented that Netanyahu and his wife Sarah have reportedly expressed pride in their older children for observing Shabbat, stating "if this thing is true, there's a huge heart-break for him and Sarah from this."
The elephant in the room is the fact that there are some very good reasons not to like Jews. They do, say and believe so many things that would be regarded as racist (specifically antisemitic) if done, said or believed by gentiles. Yet, if you flag up their racism it is you who are accused of being racist. Where the Jews have really scored is that they have got the gentiles to do the accusing for them. What a people!
