There is an ancient Jewish saying, “a woman is merely real-estate” (ha-isha qarqa’ be’alma). The analogy being that, just like real-estate, a woman can be bought in one of three ways (according to Jewish law). Also, just like the land, a woman bears fruit several months after being sown. But there is yet another analogy. Whenever one people wishes to conquer another people, it does so through the women of the subject people just as it does so by seizing its lands.
A commentator, called Gerry, linked to an article, in his comment on my post about Hoosier Nation, that discusses the ongoing problem of Jewish women marrying non-Jews in Israel – specifically Muslims. The relationship between Muslim men and Jewish women in Israel is very much like that of black men and white women in the U.S. In both cases, the men view the women of the subject people as both trophies and a means of “getting back” at their supposed oppressors. To the extent that love is involved, it is a love born of hate. Israeli Muslims hate Jews, so they seek out the soft underbelly of the Jewish people, its women, as targets. Black men hate whites, so they seek out the soft underbelly of white people, its women, as targets. Sometimes this takes the form of rape, other times it takes the form of dating and romance – but the goal is the same: a feather in the hat of the man and a blow against his enemy.
It is no accident that the vast majority of Muslim/Jewish couples involve a male Muslim and a Jewess, just as it is no accident that the vast majority of black/white couples involve a black male and a white female. In both cases, the male is using “love” as a weapon against the target population. In both cases, women of the target population perceive such men as being more “masculine” because of their raw crudeness and vulgarity. There is a certain type of woman that is attracted to this.
The cited article reads in part:
Marriages between Jewish women and Arab men took center stage at a meeting of the Knesset Committee for the Advancement of Women this week, when committee chairwoman Tzipi Hotovely (Likud) hosted a hearing on the subject in honor of Jewish Identity Day in the Knesset…
“We must confront the fact that the country has not valued education, which is the only way to prevent Jewish women from forging life connections with non-Jews,” Hotovely said.
“The struggle against assimilation only reaches headlines through stories about Jewish women marrying Muslim men, but it is important to remember that the phenomenon is much wider – 92,000 mixed families live in the State of Israel. There is a need to create a curriculum for girls in high schools that deals with Jewish identity. The fact that girls reach a state of intermarriage testifies to the fact that the education system was absent.”
As a Jew, I am encouraged that public officials in Israel take this matter seriously. On the other hand – where is the outcry, in the U.S., against the targeting of white women?
