Marzel to beauty queen: Don't marry a goy
United Jewish Front leader begs local beauty queen Linor Aberjil not to marry her boyfriend, non-Jewish NBA player Sarunas Jasikevicius, and 'divorce the Jewish people'

http://www.ynetnews.com/articles/0,7340,L-3223268,00.ht...

<snip>

"Chairman of the United Jewish Front party, Baruch Marzel, called on Israeli model and former Miss Universe Linor Aberjil Thursday to turn down a marriage proposal from her boyfriend, non-Jewish Lithuanian NBA player Sarunas Jasikevicius.

Aberjil, and Jasikevicius, who plays for the Indiana Pacers, have announced on Sunday they are getting married."

<snip>

"While the recent marriage proposal stirred excitement in Israel, some are apparently opposed to the notion of the not purely-Jewish covenant.

"I was pained to hear you intend to marry basketball player Jasikevicius," Marzel wrote in a letter to Aberjil. "I have nothing against Sharas, and he may well be a wonderful, charming man, but as long as he has not converted, you must not make such a move."

Marzel wrote Aberjil that if she weds Jasikevicius she would be divorcing the people of Israel as well as her family."

2. What business is it of his to determine whether or not....
she marries Jasikevicius? I'm married to a man who is a different colour than I am and I have never understood why people feel they have to right to tell you who you can love, date or marry , especially when you see their often miserable marriages.

3. So what? Her children will still be Jewish
They only sit Shiva for sons who marry gentiles because those children will be non Jews. It's passed through the mother, probably due to the old laws governing slavery.

6. What is passed through the mother?
Her children will still be Jewish...

According to Nazis, her children will still be Jewish?

It's passed through the mother...

What is "it"?

7. I realize it's a little confusing sometimes
but Judaism is a religion not a race, so the kids will be whatever religion the parents choose.

8. Jews are a tribe or nation .....
Edited on Fri Jul-07-06 08:27 PM by meti57b
We share common customs, origins, ethnicity, history, language, religion and we take in new members. That makes us a nationality or a tribe.

9. maybe, I like the idea..
but it's hard to say if we really share everything you mention in your post. Customs are different for virtually every "type" of jew, we don't really share ethnicity, we do have a common language for prayer mostly, and when comparing a reform jew to a haredi it's hard to see how that is a "shared" religion. We do share a country, though again there are certain individuals in judaism who are not to thrilled about that.

Your right that it's more than "just" a religion though, but it definitely is not just a group of genetically related persons.

5. Which religions make a special effort to preach to beauty queens?
Marzel wrote Aberjil that if she weds Jasikevicius she would be divorcing the people of Israel...

Suppose Marzel is right. Then why doesn't Marzel simply persuade one person to "get married to the people of Israel" to compensate for the one person who would be "divorcing the people of Israel"?

Perhaps ordinary people aren't good enough? Perhaps Marzel would feel a need to persuade a beauty queen to "get married to the people of Israel"? Perhaps Marzel doubts that Marzel would be able to persuade a non-Jewish beauty queen to "get married to the people of Israel"? So Marzel refuses to even try?
