Fauda star Tzachi Halevy weds Muslim Israeli TV anchor Lucy Aharish
Fauda star Tzachi Halevy secretly married popular Muslim Israeli TV anchor Lucy Aharish Wednesday night in a small private ceremony at an undisclosed in Israel.
Aharish, 37, is an Arab Muslim and Halevy, 43, is a Jew.
The two have reportedly been in a stable and secret relationship for years.
Their wedding plans were also kept secret to avoid drawing protesters from Muslim and Jewish extremist groups.
Aharish and Halevy have reportedly been together for four years, though their relationship was never made public.
Though news of their wedding came as a shock to many Israelis, several news outlets indicated that it was known by many gossip reporters, but they were asked to keep the news secret over opposition from both their families.
“I don’t blame Lucy Aharish for seducing the soul of a Jewish man in order to hurt our state and prevent more Jewish offspring from continuing the Jewish lineage. On the contrary, she’s welcomed to convert to Judaism,” MK Oren Hazan wrote on Twitter and Facebook.
“I do blame Tzachi the IslamLevi, who took Fauda one step too far. Bro, snap out of it. Lucy, it’s not personal, but know that Tzachi is my brother and the people of Israel are my people. No more assimilation,” the Likud MK added.
