Netanyahu Says His Son and Non-Jewish Girl only ‘Study Together’

The difference between Yair Netanyahu, and Anthony Weiner and Hillary Clinton, is that Israel is a Jewish state.

Yair Netanyahu and non-Jewish Norwegian friend- just studying  together?

Yair Netanyahu and non-Jewish Norwegian friend- just studying together?

The son of Benjamin Netanyahu simply is only “studying” with his non-Jewish Norwegian girlfriend and is not dating her, sources in the Prime Minister’s office told the Shas Haredi party.

Earlier this year, a picture of Yair and Sandra Leikanger, 25, who both study at the Interdisciplinary Center in Herzliya, showed them together, and he recently visited her in Norway.

Prime Minister Netanyahu now denies the earlier report that he told the Norwegian Prime Minister in Davos last week about the relationship, which was headlined in Norway’s newspapers.

Aryeh Deri, head of the Shas party, told an Israeli radio station after the initial report, “I know friends of mine who invest tens of millions and more, hundreds of millions to fight assimilation in the world. If God forbid it’s true, woe to us…. It is no longer a personal matter — it is a symbol of the Jewish people.”

Whether Prime Minister Netanyahu has carried out damage control or the couple really has nothing going on between putting theirs together to study, the shock waves are enough to convince Yair to find another study partner, or, if h really s dating Sandra, to start her on the road to an Orthodox version.

  1. This is none of our business. Whether they study, date, or procreate, is not our business or concern.

  2. This is nobody’s business but the young couple’s. Leave them alone and let them work it out themselves.

  3. Chelsea, not Hillary married a Jew.

  4. Dejan Popov says:

    they are just studying and trying to do that as comfortable as possible :) (This comes from PM’s office…)

  5. Roman Druker says:

    And they never inhale either

  6. Every Jewish kid dated a non-Jew and said they were only “friends”.

  7. This has nothing to do with anyone… I have this to say…. so what!

  8. Really! that is not news. How about some real news. Keep on and you will be deleted.

  9. Kumar Thomas says:

    oh, ok. Thank you daddy for the clarification – you know if they had babies the world might stop rotating on its axis! If you din’t get my sarcasm – most people don’t give a damn and just wish for their happiness.

  10. What’s the big deal? Jews and Gentiles have been he-ing and she-ing ever since ancient times and we’re still here, aren’t we? King David’s grandmother was a Moabite priestess and today her name (Ruth) is one of the most common Jewish names in the world. So let’s cut the girl some slack, shall we?

    The problem is that the Norwegian girl may influence Bibi. In fact I would say that this would be inevitable. Therefore she is a security risk.

    I love how desperate the conservative Israeli press is to make it an issue, and it’s been a huge failure…it’s simply made conservative Israelis look bigoted, racist and ignorant.

  22. ha ha ha oh i can imagine what the israelis are saying to that dumb comment. cant say what shmuel would say here but lets put it this way.. they are studying what exactly…. guess we do a lot of “studying ” in israel. strange i remember other words that describe those sharing moments….with big grins….studying is not one of them….

  23. actually it is our business as a lot of money is spent to bring jews back to their roots as so many marry out and are lost to us. and the prime ministers son is very visible and it stinks. israelis dont like it at all. we have so many gorgeous girls in israel he did not have to go out to find a non jew but then he can do what he wants cant he and not pay the price …hey like his parents. bibi is giving away our land, wasting our tax dollars spending 7 million on medical treatment for syrians while we dont have money here to pay for hospital, and allowing arabs to stone us daily , attack us and defile the temple mount. yes it is our damn business what this family does to us.

  32. Yerusha Levi Horn says:

    I feel for these young people..young ones take pics together any time any where these days of highly accessible tech ..except that Yair is of the leading family of Israel. The media is the problem in this case. Why making these two a target. What for? For goodness sake!

  41. Keith David Reitman says:

    If he visits her in Norway he will need to be careful; and for sure not where a Kippa'. Norway may be the most anti-Semitic country in the West, say some pundits. The couple better walk fast and not dally while there.

  42. Lisa Kamins says:

    hum… well we could give them the benefit of the doubt, all the same, not likely to be true, that is the sad fact or facts of life.

  43. Lisa Kamins says:

  45. Lina Deza says:

    Their being a dating couple has nothing to do with the Jewish state! No connection at all!

  46. Yeah they “study” anatomy~!

  47. This kid is young, besides all of this sounds a bit racist.

  48. Mick Bolton says:

    What can I say? Lucky sod! ;)

  49. …interesting what the subject is… ;)

  50. Dan Silagi says:

    If they're doing more than just "studying," or if they're studying "Reproductive Sciences," what business is it of yours, or that verminous ex-con Aryeh Deri's?

  51. Lisa Kamins says:

    Sadly one one is the child of the prime minister of the Jewish state one becomes a public figure, even if one does not want to. Since the prime minister's family is representative of the Jewish state the need to observe a minimal level of Jewish law. This may mean nothing to you. You may be ignorant of, or not care about Jewish law. That is your choice. Just like you do not want others to judge, do Not judge others for having moral principles that go well beyond your comprehension. Even if you think you understand, you do not, as you not only are not learned in the basics of Torah, based on your reaction, you have no belief.
