Israel Moves to Tighten its Ethnic Purity Laws

submit to reddit

Israel has moved to tighten its racial purity laws with the main Rabbinical authority in charge of training rabbis upholding its ban on performing marriage ceremonies between Jews and non-Jews, while at the same time, the Israeli government has announced a new law which will squash all legal challenges to its biologically-based Jews-only racial immigration requirements.

The Jewish Telegraphic Agency has reported that the Jewish Theological Seminary (JTS), which trains rabbis for the Conservative movement, said it is committed to keeping its ban on clergy from performing “interfaith” wedding ceremonies.

The JTS said that a marriage in Israel “is not only a celebration of a couple, but a commitment to the Jewish covenant” and that therefore marriages between Jews and non-Jews would remain illegal.

Currently, it is illegal under Jewish law for Jews to marry non-Jews in Israel, but recently some left wing Jews have tried to get this changed.

A statement issued this week by the JTS came in response to the announcement last week by two rabbis who belong to the Rabbinical Assembly, the international association of Conservative rabbis, that they would begin officiating at such ceremonies.

“We understand the arguments made for our clergy to officiate at interfaith weddings, knowing that they come from a place of genuine concern for bringing near individuals and families who are or might be estranged from the community and tradition we love,” the statement, published on its website and first published in the Forward.

“However, we believe — and the data confirm — that by far the most effective path toward building a Jewish future is to strengthen Jewish identity, beginning with the Jewish family.”

The JTS statement said that for the seminary and its partners in the Conservative movement, “the wedding ceremony is not only a celebration of a couple, but a commitment to the Jewish covenant. Its opening blessing thanks God for infusing our lives with holiness through the mitzvot, and its closing lines connect this marriage to the rebirth of the Jewish people in Jerusalem. Such statements can be said truly only if both partners identify as Jews.

Meanwhile, the Israeli government has inserted legislation known in Israel as the “Haredi conversion bill” into the agenda of the Ministerial Committee for Legislation set for this coming weekend.

The law has been promoted by Benjamin Netanyahu’s orthodox coalition partners in the Israeli Knesset—upon whom he depends to keep himself in power—and will give the country’s Chief Rabbinate a final legal monopoly on “conversion,”—that is, deciding who is a Jew and who is not.

The legislation has been formulated by the Interior Ministry at the direction of Interior Minister and Shas chairman Arye Deri.

The proposal determines that only conversions performed by the State Conversion Authority under the guidance of the Chief Rabbinate will be recognized for the purposes of citizenship via the Law of Return and registering as Jewish in the Interior Ministry.

It would permanently prevent Reform, Conservative and some Orthodox converts – who converted in Israel and are not yet citizens – from obtaining citizenship under the Law of Return.

The bill would circumvent a ruling last year by the High Court of Justice that ordered the state to grant citizenship to converts who converted through non-state, Orthodox rabbinical courts.

It would also preemptively circumvent an expected ruling by the High Court on a similar case regarding the right of Reform and Conservative converts who are not citizens to obtain citizenship under the Law of Return.

It is thought likely that the court will rule to award such converts citizenship; the timing of the new legislation is likely an attempt to prevent such an eventuality.

• The Jewish lobby in America and all European countries are, of course, always at the forefront of opposing any parties or individuals who would dare suggest that Europeans be allowed to maintain their racial identity.

The Jewish lobby even has a host of organizations devoted to opposing and attacking any non-Jews who they would class as “racist” just for wanting to duplicate Israel’s sensible laws. Jewish extremist organizations come in many forms, some posing as “civil rights groups” (such as the SPLC or ADL), while others take on the guise of “anti-racist” or “anti-fascist” organizations.

All of these groups, of course, all fanatically support Israel, which implements the very same policy which the Jewish lobby so vehemently opposes in European countries.

This hypocrisy is so blatant that it cannot be by accident or coincidental—and is clearly part of a deliberately duplicitous effort to promote the racial destruction of European people while simultaneously preserving the racial identify of Jews.
