An Israeli nationalist group has urged supermodel Bar Refaeli to dump on-again/off-again boyfriend Leonardo DiCaprio so she can settle down with a Jewish husband.
Refaeli, who has been dating the Oscar-nominated actor on and off since his split from Gisele Bundchen in 2005, recently told reporters that she has no plans to marry DiCaprio. That declaration, however, has failed to convince outspoken Israeli politician Baruch Marzel — who recently fired off a letter to Refaeli, warning the stunner to stay away from the actor.
Did we miss something? When did Bar’s romantic choices become a political matter?
Marzel’s letter, sent on behalf of The Lehava Organization, read: “It is not by chance that you were born Jewish. Your grandmother and her grandmother did not dream that one of their descendants would one day remove the family’s future generations from the Jewish people. Assimilation has forever been one of the enemies of the Jewish people….Come to your senses, look forward and back too – and not only the present. Don’t marry Leonardo DiCaprio, don’t harm the future generations.”
