Israeli Model Condemned as “Traitor” by Fellow Jews for Santa Suit

The on-going, intolerable and irrational hatred which Jewish Supremacists have for anything even remotely connected to Europeans and Christians has been illustrated once again with a flurry of insults directed against an Israeli model who dared to wear a Santa Claus suit.

Model Bar Refaeli—who genetically speaking, looks nothing like a Jew and is probably almost wholly of European extraction—posted up a picture of herself on her Instagram account wearing a Santa suit—and has provoked a storm of responses, all in Hebrew, accusing her of being  traitor to Judaism.

The picture has a message saying “Good Morning Santa!” without any further explanation.

However, as reported on the Israeli Ynet news service, she was then “inundated with comments from her fans in both English and Hebrew, with reminders that she’s Jewish, others hoping she finds God, and some going as far as to accuse her of ‘betraying Israel.'”

Just a couple weeks ago, Refaeli posted a tweet wishing safety for “both sides” during the crisis in Gaza. “I prey (sic) for the safety of the citizens on both sides and for the day we will live in peace and harmony Amen,” she wrote.

Many of her fans reacted to that posting by calling her “unpatriotic” and choosing to unfollow her.

In 2010, Jewish Supremacist group Lehava, which is an anti-assimilation organisation with close links to the Israel government, urged Rafaeli to break off her relationship with the gentile actor Leonardo di Caprio.

“It is not by chance that you were born Jewish,” wrote Baruch Marzel in a letter he sent Refaeli through her mother (and that promptly appeared in the press). “Your grandmother and her grandmother did not dream that one of their descendants would one day remove the family’s future generations from the Jewish people. Assimilation has forever been one of the enemies of the Jewish people.”

Lehava is Hebrew for “flame”; it is also the Hebrew acronym for “Preventing Assimilation in the Holy Land.”
