Hundreds Protest Mixed Wedding, Say It's 'Worse Than Hamas'


Hundreds of protesters arrived to demonstrate Sunday night against the mixed marriage of a young couple from Yafo: Moral, a 23-year-old Jewish woman recently converted to Islam by her groom, Mahmoud Mansour, a 26-year-old Muslim Arab.

At the protest led by the Lehava group which fights assimilation in Israel, former MK Dr. Michael Ben-Ari addressed the crowd, saying "Moral, it won't help you. They always will remind you that you're Jewish and where you came from. The children you give birth to will never be equal to them."
