But only here, not over there.

In 1967, it was Jewish activists who sued to overturn bans on interracial marriage in America, yet in 2020, the Jewish state retains the strictest miscegenation laws in the world.

This is the subject of a new Press TV documentary on Israelis who are not allowed to marry by the country’s Rabbinate. Some couples use a loophole that allows them to marry abroad, but with COVID travel restrictions this has become impossible.

The Zionist state does not allow its citizens to obtain a civil marriage. Jewish apologists will often assert that Israel’s marriage laws are primarily motivated by the population’s concern with religious tradition, but a Gallup survey has found that Israel is one of the least religious countries in the world.

Under the rules set by the Rabbinate, a Jew who seeks to marry an individual who might be racially impure under Halakhic law must subject their spouse to DNA tests in order to prove their “genetic Jewishness.” Converts to Judaism and communities such as Ethiopian Jews are also largely banned from wedding.

Though Israel’s population is 75% Jewish and the country is highly secular, 98% of Jews say their friends are mostly or only Jewish. 89% of Jews also say they would not accept their child marrying a Gentile, going as high as 97% were the theoretical partner a Muslim.

While mixing in general is rare, the Israeli state funds initiatives every year intended to discourage Jews from dating outside their race. A street organization composed of Jewish men called Lehava patrol more cosmopolitan neighborhoods in Jerusalem and beat up interracial couples.

Jews in the United States are also known as the people who pioneered gay marriage, but in Israel same-sex marriage is prohibited.

In Israel marriage is a respected institution that enjoys fierce government protection. 50% of Jews marry by the age of 25, while in America only 29% of people between the ages of 18 to 34 are married.

With 95% of American Jews affirming support for the state of Israel, the sincerity of our country’s vanguard of “tolerance,” cosmopolitanism and social liberalism ought to be brought into question.

You're confusing a lot of stuff here. It's NOT an Israeli govt mandate to have the Rabbinate approve marriages.. THe govt has no RIGHT TO STOP THEM from approving marriages. You said yourself Israel is kinda a secular nation in terms of religiousity.. So there are 3 branches of Judaism.. Dont' have to rely on the "official Rabbinate" to approve a marriage.

Then you go confusing genetic tests for Jewishness with genetic tests for race.. Make up your mind. Which is it? The Jewishness part is even HOTLY debated in Israel.. Lots of disagreement about who is "Jewish enough".. So I have NO DOUBT that there are Arab/Jewish marriages, Black/White marriages and you'll be SHOCKED I'm sure to learn how TOLERANT Israel is to Gays..

What interests me is how conservative and patriotic Jews are in Israel, and how liberal and anti-patriotic they are here. There, they want what's best for their country. Here they attack those who want what's best for their country. There, they build a wall. Here, they open the borders. There, they are consciously eugenic. Here, they attack eugenicists as Nazis.

It's almost like they are overtly our enemies. But that couldn't be true.

Because that would be anti-Semitic.

Not if the marriage OCCURS in Israel.. But if the people hop a short flight to Greece and get married or do it in NYCity with relatives -- the Israeli govt does recognize gay marriages, inter-racial, arab/jew marriages..

It's a compromise to keep the 8% of "promise keepers" in the Ultra Orthodox happy. If you get married OUTSIDE -- they have no power to force the govt NOT to recognize your marriage..

That's what the article is saying. With Covid, travel has become a problem.

Ben Shapiro, Mark Levin, David Horowitz, Ben Stein, Michael Savage (somewhat a looney), Dennis Prager -- how many ya want? Certainly RECENTLY because of the REAL anti-semitism on the left, attitudes and loyalties to parties are changing..

Latest numbers are about 22 to 30% of self-identified Jews are voting Republican.. You not know this?

I admittedly know nothing about marriage laws in Israel. Upon a cursory search, it seems that Israeli law prohibits marriage between Jews and non-Jews. Is my understanding accurate?

Religious marriages are forbidden by religious law (although Reformed Jewish congregations do it all the time). Civil marriages have no such restrictions in Israel. In fact, same-sex marriage has been recognized in Israel for decades.

There are no 'genetic tests for Jewishness' in Jewish Law. The concept of 'Jewish Blood' didn't begin with Jews, but with another group, friends of the OP.

Actually, there weren't. Any Jew working in government or academia was dismissed by the Nazi government many years before the war. By the time World War II started in 1939, all Jews in German who weren't in hiding were either deported or sent to concentration camps.

I don’t think people realised what went on before, in the lead up to the actual Holocaust.

The turning point came when Jews in Germany were stripped of their German citizenship, and even then , when they fled to “safety”, it was like going from the frying pan into the fire.

Yes. It’s all there. Categorised quite nicely. For all to see.

Hitler defined Jewishness?
Hitler defined HIS definition of Jewishness. A definition that remains quite popular with like-minded people.

However, Hitler's definition of Jewishness has nothing to do with reality. It is merely a tool for persecution.

Which is why I clearly pointed out that this 'Jewish Blood' mishigas started well before the war. In fact, it goes back to 19th Century European antisemitism.
