In an ad made to look like an imaginary wedding invitation between Michal and her chosen groom Mohammad, distributed throughout Jerusalem's streets, the organization is seeking to demonstrate what would happen if parents fail to keep watch over their daughters.The organization behind this is Lehava, and if those y'fei ha'nefesh(translates as 'beautiful people' but that doesn't give the true, contemptuous nature of the term) who are offended by it had led the Jewish people through our 2,000 years of exile, we would have no Jewish people left, God forbid.
Secular people who passed by the "invitations" expressed their anger over what they say is the racist wording of the ad: "They are staining an entire nation and turning us into racists against our will. We are not all primitives as might be understood from the ad," said on Jerusalemite after reading the ad.
The "invitation" asks you to join Michal and Mohammad as they celebrate their marriage on a Friday night at the Shahid (martyr) events hall in Ramallah. Next to the invitation the ad reads: "If you don't want your daughter's wedding invitation to look like this then…Don't let her work with Arabs or do national service with non-Jews, don't let her work in place that employs enemies and don't bring home migrant workers…"
For those of you who think that it's a pleasure for Jewish women to be married to Arab Muslim men, please consider this story.
I know someone who hides Jewish women who are fleeing their abusive Arab Muslim husbands and their families.
For centuries, Jewish parents have torn their clothing and sat shiva when their children married non-Jews. And for good reason.
