    First, what is your outrage actually about, dear Benjamin? On the fact that israel sees itself as the only home for Jews and finally, again after many years, says it out loud? Or about a condemnation of interrmarriage? Actually, I didn't notice them referring much to this topic. To be honest 1., Israelis themselves often "get lost" when feeling not at home anymore in Israel.The mass of chilonim who perfectly live a goyish life within Eretz Israel and then often leave it to live an even more goyish life. So, for sure, Israel is no guarantee, too. Quote: "can make the bonds stronger": Yet this does not mean that mixed marriage should become the Jewish people's most successfull method of preserving themselves! To be honest 2., the video, may it outrage or not, points to the opinion our Jewish Talmudic sages had on Jewry,intermarriage and Galut. If we want to search for authentic Jewish attitude, they provided it. I suppose,the sages wouldn't disagree much with this videos's message.
