    Would it be any different if the wives were wives of Imam's? I understand, though don't necessarily agree with the suggestion that one not date non-Jews but not working and not doing national service with non-Jews? That is outrageous, pathetic, intolerant and, happily, unacceptable to the majority of Jews both in the world and in Israel! May I say that one of my great worries, when my children were growing up, is that they would date and God forbid marry, a religious person. I have always wanted the greatest happiness and fulfillment for my children and despite being Jewish and sympathizing, naturally, with our historic and current plight, I have always preferred that my children marry happily than per se marry Jewish. But not working with or doing service with or being friends, even very close friends, with someone who is Christian, Muslim, Hindu or whatever???? That is beyond the pale and entirely evil.
