Jewish extremists to model Bar Refaeli: Don't marry DiCaprio

By Haaretz Service

Jewish extremists have urged supermodel Bar Refaeli not to marry her actor boyfriend, Leonardo DiCaprio, because it would dilute the Jewish race, according to media reports.

In a letter to Refaeli, far-rightist Baruch Marzel wrote on behalf of nationalist group Lehava, which aims to fight assimilation among Jews: "It is not by chance that you were born Jewish.

"Your grandmother and her grandmother did not dream that one of their descendants would one day remove the family's future generations from the Jewish people," the letter continued. "Assimilation has forever been one of the enemies of the Jewish people."

Lehava in Hebrew means "flame" but it is also an acronym for "Preventing Assimilation in the Holy Land." According to the group's Facebook page, it aims to provde assistance to Jewish girls in relationships with non-Jews, and especially Arabs.

1. For starters, how do they know that Bar Rafaeli is "racially pure Jewish"?
She has an awfully fair complexion.

5. Does Lehava realize the irony of their purity decree?
Either they have forgotten their own history with this kind of nonsense during WWII or they must believe that there is a different standard applied to them.

4. Are these Lehava clowns getting their talking point from thier Muslim cousins?

Every group has their right wing crazies. Why should the Jews be any different?

8. I now worry about the quality of Israeli science education.
Do they not teach the human genome?

7. LOL! Seen my blue-eyed blonde grandmother?
Mitochondrial DNA testing has shown that Jewish women have the genetic makeup of the general neighborhood. Jewish men, however, go back to the stone age with their Arab brothers. Play nicely boys, but don't you dare tell us women what to do. We ain't you.

11. I guess I "removed" my jewish wife, then...My FIL asked me if I would consider
becoming a jew. I told him I had been raised in christian religious schools all my life and didn't believe any of it, and that I could be a bad jew as easily as I was a bad christian. He said,"Oh well, never mind, then..."

FWIW, our 17th anniversary is this Sunday, and both my jewish inlaws grew to think I was a wonderful man.
We have a christmas tree and a menorah - and no kids.

12. which pure Jews?
The black Ethiopian Jews, or the Mizrahi jews, or the Sephardic Jews, or the Ashkenazi Jews? The inbred pure Hasidic Jews, or whatever other combination? Jeez, stupidity and racism really is worldwide.


Ethiopian Jews


A British Hasidic Jew


Russian Jewish guy


Two Moroccan Jews


Yep. A pure race, alright.

14. Seems some here are confused.
The "pure race" this bigot is referring to is the "Jewish" one. It has nothing to do with eye, hair, skin color. Every single "pure Jew" proponent has never spoken about those features, but more about being "born Jewish." This is the tricky "are Jews a race?" issue. (No, I don't believe we are.) Is their an ethnic component? Probably. The term "race" has become so diluted and misused, as has the term "racism," and it creates problems in communication.
