ISRAEL: Netanyahu’s Education Minister Says American Jews Marrying Non-Jews Is “Like A Second Holocaust”

Axios reports:

Israel’s newly appointed minister of education, Rafi Peretz, said at a cabinet meeting on July 1 that the rate of intermarriage among U.S. Jews is “like a second Holocaust,” according to three people who were in the room.

Peretz, a former chief rabbi of the Israeli army, is the leader of a bloc of ultra right-wing religious parties.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was personally involved in forming this political bloc, which also includes the Jewish supremacist “Jewish Power” party. If Netanyahu wins the upcoming elections, Peretz will likely stay on as education minister.
