Mixed-Marriage Protest Allowed From a Distance


Bentzi Gopshtain, director of the Lehava organization which combats assimilation in Israel, arrived at the Rishon Letzion Magistrates' Court on Sunday morning, after Mahmoud Mansour filed a motion to block Lehava from protesting his wedding to a Jewish woman.

Mahmoud is set to marry Moral, a Jewish 23-year-old woman who, like him, hails from Yafo, on Sunday afternoon, despite the firm opposition of Moral's father, who has refused to attend the wedding. According to Mahmoud, Moral has already converted to Islam.
