The left freaks out over ‘Tomorrow it could be your daughter’ ad in Central Israeli-Arab town
The Jewish Home party put up advertisements in Ramle on Tuesday warning against marriage between Arabs and Jews, as part of its local election campaign.
The billboards that appeared throughout the mixed Jewish-Arab city show a woman wearing a hijab in front of a table holding Shabbat candles and a Kiddush cup. The text reads, “There are hundreds of cases of assimilation in Ramle and nobody cares. Tomorrow it could be your daughter.” Under that, it reads, “Only a strong Jewish Home can preserve Jewish Ramle.”
Arab residents of the city, other candidates and leftists protested the ad on social media.
Ultra-leftist Meretz party filed a complaint to the Central Elections Committee to have the campaign stopped. The anti-Israel party warned that the campaign could “inflame the fragile relationship between the Jewish and Arab residents of the city.”
The Jewish Home party responded to criticism against the Ramle faction’s campaign saying: “The party’s position on assimilation is clear: The Jewish nation must preserve its national character and preserve its tradition, religion, culture and heritage.”
