“We approach the girl in question and tell her about the life that awaits her with the selfsame Ahmed who at the moment is calling himself Yossi,” he explained.The fourth option is for those wanting to donate or help out, while the fifth provides the Hebrew names of several women who, according to the service, are in need of prayers to save them from their relationships with non-Jews.“If you are in contact with a goy and need assistance, press 1,” is the first option offered by the service, which continues by asking callers if they wish to inform on others.“If you know a girl who is involved with a goy and you want to help her, press 2,” the voice recording says.He appeared alongside his co-defendant, Vincent Tappu, 28, who is charged with the kidnapping of both women.Binita Roscoe, prosecuting, told the court the teenager was of Indian Muslim heritage and had started a relationship with an Arab Muslim man, the reports.“I come from a paradox of a family of post-Holocaust Jewish liberals who believe in human rights and that everyone is equal - but just don’t marry a non-Jew,” she said.

"The deceased was involved in a relationship with an Arab Muslim and the family members didn't approve of this relationship because they are Indian Muslims."

Today, the pair are one of only a few hundred Jewish-Arab married couples living in Israel and unions like theirs - though rare - are a source of deep anxiety for some Israelis who believe intermarriage could ultimately mean the end of the Jewish state.
“We know that we’re the kind of marriage that Israel doesn't want and I think a lot of Muslims aren’t thrilled by it either,” said Varda, who asked that the family’s surname not be published.
Over the course of 16 largely happy years of marriage and raising children, the couple have had to vault hurdles thrown up by the Israeli state and their respective societies.
