  • Israel's ethnic purity police presents: Anti-assimilation for men

    In its ongoing efforts to save every Jewish soul, anti-assimilation group Yad L'Achim has broadened its offerings and is now extending its marriage-wrecking service to Jewish men in relationships with non-Jewish women.  Israeli anti-miscegenation group Yad L'Achim took a step towards equality last week when it announced via its website that it had rolled out its anti-assimilation "rescue" service to Jewish men in relationships with non-Jewish women. A more established counterpart to Lehava's goon squads, Yad L'Achim is also known for harassing Messianic Jews as part of its anti-assimilation efforts.

  • Court to allow anti-Arab protest outside Jewish-Palestinian wedding

  • Jewish anti-miscegenation groups distribute racist, sexist flyers

    I have recently reported on a few instances in which two Jewish anti-miscegenation groups  - Lehava and Yad L'Achim - have been actively operating to thwart contact between Jews and Arabs. Lehava, which runs a hotline encouraging callers to inform on Jewish-Arab couples, was reportedly behind a campaign to pressure Israel's National Service Administration to stop allowing Israeli Jewish females to work night shifts in hospitals - presumably to make it more difficult for them to socialize with the Palestinian citizens of Israel with whom they work. Yad L'Achim - whose mission is to fight "assimilation" (read: miscegenation) and whose slogan is,…
