Netanyahu’s Son Dating Norwegian Gentile

The caption under the image reads: Sandra (25) from Grimstad is romantic partner with the son of one of the world's foremost terror targets (Thank you, Paul Goldstein, for the correction).

Yair Netanyahu, son of the Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, is dating a non-Jewish girl from Norway, media in Sweden reported after the Prime Minister informed Norwegian Prime Minister Erna Solberg of the relationship at the World Economic Forum in Davos.

Yair and Leikanger met at the Interdisciplinary Center in Herzliya, where both of them are studying. Her family is from an evangelical Christian community, and Sandra’s sister lives in Israel.

After the Norwegian press had picked up the scoop, Leikanger removed the couple’s pictures from her Facebook page. The press also couldn’t find out whether there had been special security arrangement in place while Netanyahu Jr. was visiting her in Norway.

The newspaper Grimstad Adressetidende asked Conrad Myrland, head of the With Israel for Peace (MIFF) organization what he thought about the young couple’s relationship, and he said, “This is good news and it’s nice that Netanyahu could tell Norwegian journalists about it” during his visit.

Myrland also said he did not think this would have any political significance.

Wanna’ bet?

If Prime Minister Netanyahu really wants Israel to be recognized as a Jewish state, and if Yair and his blonde girlfriend Sandra Leikanger become husband and wife one day, she may have to go through an Orthodox Jewish conversion.

Also, it’s the Norwegian parliament that decides who gets the Nobel prizes; if Netanyahu now has the inside track in Norway, he could actually arrange for the peace prize to go to John Kerry, provided he walks away and doesn’t come back.

So, as always, crisis creates opportunity.

Gratulerer. Google says it means Mazal Tov in Norwegian.

  1. David Brooks says:

    She's about as likely to go through an orthodox conversion as Bibi is likely to stand up to the Americans…

  2. Het wordt vast een mooi koppel. Wonen veel mooie mensen in Noorwegen dus ik kan zijn smaak wel waarderen. Hopelijk krijgen ze geen problemen door het geloof.

  3. Just dating not married right?

  4. Deane Gross says:

    At least she’s studying is Israel and comes from an evangelical family; they tend to be better Zionists than most American Jews!

  5. Ain’t love grand….sigh….

  6. Who gives a **** , Netanyahu was a temple wasn’t he

  7. Dan Silagi says:

    OMG! Time to render clothing and sit shiva! The horrors!

  8. Max Aaron says:

    The only reason why they support Israel is that they want all the Jews gathered in Israel and when that happens they think their messiah will come and either kill or convert the jews to xtianity. Definitely prefer most Western Jews.

  9. Pedro Acosta says:

    Love, is love. She shall convert.

  10. Deane Gross says:

    I know that, Max, but I’m willing to risk it. It will be millennia before all the Jews gather in Israel at once! That is, if there are Jews left, and, without Israel, there won’t be. So it’s a toss up: Jews wiped out within decades or maybe as much as a century, or Jews “saved” in the Rapture. Not a happy choice, but I’ll take the evangelicals loving us.

  11. Sandra (25) is an IDIOT. As for the couple….. WOW, he got the best part of that deal! She is very pretty. Their relationship beyond that is NO ONE'S business. Especially that Jew Hating, pro-Moslem-terrorist Translator, Sandra(25).

  12. Good for that couple… The translator is an idiot though.

  13. Isra’elites have been taking non-Isra’elites for brides/husbands thousands of years :/

  14. Sandra is the name of the girlfriend not the translator which was the Google Translate website.

    There aren't enough nice Jewish girls for him that he needs to date a goy? really?

  16. Tracy Matthews sorry: I misunderstood. Thank you Tracy

  17. Alan Kardon says:

    I do not know about this person. Why is she an idiot? Please explain?

  18. Enda Gilmore says:

    She is probably a very nice girl.

  19. Enda Gilmore says:

    Dan I could be looking in the mirror at your photo.

  20. Oh, dear. My condolences! LOL :D

  21. Tim Knutsen says:

    Every year on Shavout, we read the story of Ruth.her steadfast love and obedience to G-d was rewarded. Before she became an Israelite, she wasn’t just a gentile, she was a Moabite. From Ruth came the Kingdom of David.

  22. AC Stubbs says:

    shut up bigot

  23. AC Stubbs says:

    This is no one's business. The kid is not in politics, leave him alone

  24. irwin says:

    Just wonder what both parents on both sides think.Net probably a bit embarrassed unless she converts.

  25. Chaiya Eitan says:

    AC Stubbs He isn't being a 'bigot.' We have lost so many of our people through inter-marriage. Anyway, this is our business. If she were a black Jewish woman, we'd have no problem with it.

  26. AC Stubbs says:

    Chaiya Eitan Yes he IS being a bigot So are you. YOU are saying someone is not good enough to love a Jew because of their heritage Shame on you

  27. Anonymous says:

    Dear AC Stubbs – are you Jewish? if so – I feel sorry for you because you do not feel that you are part of the Chosen People. I, as a Jewess (by the way I am a female), feel that my religion and heritage is special and do not want to mix the pot and come out with diluted results. As Ms. Eitan mentioned, I would not care what her color is, only her religion. By the way AC Stubbs – I do have the right to voice my opinion, do I not? am I a bigot if my opinion is contrary to yours? Marry who ever you want and do not worry about consequences, but do not tell me that I am a bigot because I care about the preservation of my religion

  28. Laura-Leah Schnur-Hauser says:

    Theres something wrong in the family dynamics if Bibis son has the chutzpah to date a shiksa. The prime minister of Israels son cant find a Jewish girl? Something is not kosher here!! He should be ashamed of himself!!

  29. Theo Nuke says:

    Though she be a shicksa (sp) she just might be a wonderful young lady! Remember the story of Ruth!

  30. John Newman says:

    Life is difficult. We have to obey the rules.

  31. AC Stubbs says:

    No you are only a step up from the klan. You must feel the Palestinians are ok for attacking worshipers at the Wall because they are Jewish You are not a good Jews because nothing from G*d allows this. Oh wait, you don't like being told you are not a "good Jews' well guess what NO ONE ELSE DOES EITHER Again shut up bigot

  32. AC Stubbs says:

    So I guess you got dumped for a gentile? No surprising giving your bigotry Who would want you?

  33. A C Stubbs: A bigot is someone intolerant of views other than his or her own. Those of us opposed to inter-marriage are perfectly willing to tolerate other views. We simply disagree with them. And we disagree with them not because we regard non-Jews as in any way inferior to Jews but simply and solely because we want to ensure the future of the Jewish people and fear, not unreasonably, that inter-marriage will make this less likely

  34. Anonymous says:

    David Brooks – sadly you are absolutely correct.

  35. Michael Dar says:

    There goes the little credit I still had left over for Bibi…If he was unable to educate and instill a sense of belonging into his own son he might also be flexible with our historical heritage.

  36. Mark Bernstein says:

    AC Stubbs, I guess it's easy not to be called "bigot" by non-thinking sheep like you when one has already thrown away all their religious values and pride in their heritage years ago. Personally, I'd always prefer to be called bigot by idiots who have no meaningful identity than give up my identity.
