There is no element of love or an innocent friendly relationship here.” In 2004, posters sprang up all over the northern town of Safed warning Jewish women that dating Arab men would lead to “beatings, hard drugs, prostitution and crime.” Safed’s chief rabbi, Shmuel Eliyahu, told a local newspaper that the “seducing” of Jewish girls was “another form of war” by Arab men.

Both Kiryat Gat and Safed’s campaigns were supported by a religious organization called Yad L’achim, which runs an anti-assimilation team publicly dedicated to “saving” Jewish women.

A local authority in Israel has announced that it is establishing a special team of youth counsellors and psychologists whose job it will be to identify young Jewish women who are dating Arab men and “rescue” them.

The Palestinian Authority ramped up its rhetoric against the White House Friday, issuing a scathing condemnation of the Trump administration following the selection of former US Ambassador to the United Nations John Bolton to replace outgoing National Security Advisor H. “I am pleased to announce that, effective 4/9/18, @Amb John Bolton will be my new National Security Advisor. There will be an official contact handover on 4/9.” While the selection of Bolton, a long-time backer of the Jewish state, was met with praise by Israeli leaders, Palestinian Authority legislator and spokeswoman Hanan Ashrawi excoriated President Trump over the pick, and accused Bolton of “hostility” towards Palestinian Arabs.
