Public Debate over Non-Jewish Girlfriend of Netanyahu's Son


Shas Chairman Aryeh Deri commented on the reports in an interview with the hareidi-religious radio station Kol Barama, noting that while he doesn't like to talk about personal topics, the relationship of the prime minister's son isn't just a personal matter, because Netanyahu is a "symbol of the Jewish people."

"I know friends of mine who invest tens of millions and more, hundreds of millions to fight assimilation in the world," commented Deri. "If G-d forbid it's true, woe to us. ...I hope it's not true."
