Jewish Woman Rescued from Muslim Quarter
Arutz Sheva ^ | 21/9/12 | Maayana Miskin

Posted on 09/21/2012 3:49:48 AM PDT by Eleutheria5

A Jewish woman has been rescued from a years-long abusive marriage in the Muslim Quarter of the Old City of Jerusalem, activists with the Lehava anti-assimilation organization report. Lehava head Bentzi Gopstein spoke to Arutz Sheva following the rescue.

The woman, “A,” reached out to Lehava after a friend of hers had been rescued from a similar abusive marriage with the group’s help.

“The friend was helped in rehabilitation by Rabbanit Baranes… She told ‘A’ about us, and that’s how we succeeded in helping her,” Gopstein said. The assistance provided by Lehava extended to 'A'’s small children, who are three and five years old and returned to the Jewish community along with their mother.

Women who return to Judaism after marriages to Muslim men face bureaucratic problems changing their personal status, Gopstein noted. According to Israeli law, a Jewish woman who marries a Muslim man and registers as Muslim must obtain a Muslim divorce before re-registering as Jewish, he explained.

“According to halacha [Jewish law – ed.] she’s considered Jewish without this, but the rabbinic court must follow state law,” he said. “It was very hard for us to get the divorce from the Muslim court. The Arab man agreed to give her a divorce only after getting financial...

Sharia, of course, allows a Muslim to kidnap a married woman and forcibly marry her, or just repeatedly rape her. Captive of the right hand, and all.

How am I supposed to feel sympathy for a Jewish woman who married a Muslims man of her own free will.

No more than I would feel sorry for Christiane Amanpour if she were forced to go to one of the third world crapholes she loves so much and forced to wear a burka the rest of her life.

Where was this womans brain when she married this Muslim ?

This is barbaric.

Under these ridiculous satanic rules, a guy could just could just kidnap Angelina Jolie and forcibly marry her.

Certainly this woman was moronic for hitching her wagon with anything muslim, but it should be a simple matter for a judge to stamp a document that declares her marriage over and done.

With the record and history of muslim abuse, it should be one strike and you’re out. Ship them across the border to their paliParadise.

Back in the 70’s a Muslim man tried to seduce my mother. He was the most charming, loving, attention-giving man she’d ever met. He wanted to marry her and take her back to Iran. (They were both students in college at the time.) He promised her that I’d have the best schools and that he’d love me like his own.

She almost fell for it, too.

So she started hanging out with the other Muslim women in the community. All of them were there with their husbands while the men went to college on a student visa.

The women started talking about how wonderful it was in America. How their husbands behaved here and how all of the mens’ behavior was an act. How different it was ‘at home’. These passing comments were brushed off. We were having the time of our lives as part of a community. My mother was falling in love with Muhammad.

Then my mother saw the thing that sent her running. It was time for another couple to go home. The night before, there was a huge celebration. The men and children had a wonderful time.

But the women spent the night holding and comforting the wife in the back of the apartment. And *that* is when the details of the dress, lack of women’s parental rights and the beatings came out. This woman did NOT want to go back. This was the night that my mother was told that Muhammad would take me from her once we got there and there would be nothing she could do about it. (Anyone who tells you that Iran was an enlightened, Western nation in the late ‘70’s is ill-informed.)

When these men set out to capture a woman, they are straight-up seducers. They are charming. They are everything that a woman could want in a man. Young women see this behavior, feel loved, fall in love, and cannot believe anything bad about these men.

Read, “Not without my daughter.” That book raised the hair on the back of my neck. It so perfectly illustrates how these men seduce Western women.

She was moronic, most likely, perhaps one of these leftist true believers who came to help the Pali cause, or just someone who liked the macho Muslim thing. Sometimes, however, women and even girls are abducted. But even a moron who wises up and wants out should be afforded a chance to exit. Sometimes, there are full-fledged rescues carried out by ex-military in cases like this.

Sorry. I misremembered. His name was not Muhammad. It was Mushari.

It was more than 30 years ago. :-|

Something very similar almost happened to a friend’s mother. What saved her was that he beat her up prior to them leaving America. She ended up enlisting in the air force as she was terrified of him and he was terrified of the military

With respect to decency, and her Conservative father Jon Voight, let's not denigrate Angelina. Also, Brad Pitt's mother is a decent woman. Let's rather pray for their salvation for their parents’ sakes.

This Jewish woman and Muslim man is merely a microcosm of Jews going after Obama. Same mentality. Will it be too late for many of them before they learn the true character of this Muslim oriented male?

‘Where were her brains?’ Women marry abusive men all the time in this country, and it is very hard for them to leave. How much more difficult would it be inside the PA, in a Muslim community, ‘one hour’s drive’ to the border?

Sounds like a great organization.

A pistol in his mouth would have been faster and cheaper.
