A Little Intermarriage Perhaps (Dorit Rabinyan)


To much hue and  cry, the Israel Education Minister nixed the inclusion of Dorit Rabinyan’s novel “Gader Haya” (translated as “Borderlife” in English) into the highschool curriculum. About a love affair between an Israeli and a Palestinian, apparently there was concern that it would encourage assimilation and intermarriage. According to this story here at the Times of Israel, it’s now flying off the shelves. I like the bookcoover and the way it looks on the blog-page. Maybe a little intermarriage, a little intermarriage in Israel, would do the country, would do the Jewish people some good.

    Maybe those in positions of political power could be compelled to intermarry with persons of established sanity. At least that would give the next generation a better chance…

    A little more intermarriage + a little more sodomy = a step closer to the messianic era
