Israel – Supreme Court: Child Must Go Back to Non-Jewish Father in Belgium

    17

    Israel – The Supreme Court came to a decision that an eight-year-old boy who has been living in Israel for the past two years and is being raised by his mother in an ultra-Orthodox community must return to live with his estranged non-Jewish father in Belgium.

    "I'm in total shock," a tearful Ronite Biton, who has been fighting for the past six years to retain custody of her son and stands accused of abducting him from his country of origin, said today. "I don't know what I will do yet. Either I stay here and never see him again, or I go back [to Belgium] and go to jail."

    Adding that with no course of action left for her in Israel, she plans to take her case to both the United Nations and the European Union.

    The boy's father, Vincent Georis, said that he was very happy with the court's decision and that finally his son would find some "peace and stability" in his care.

    Georis, who is Christian, said he had no problem allowing his son to continue his Jewish practices and also said his ex-wife should be part of the arrangement. [J-post]

    “supposedly Jewish country” … that is the problem. It is NOT a Jewish country, it is a Zionist country.

    If we do not make is clear as frum Jews that we distance ourselves from the Medina, than we are supporting it, and its horrors.

    The Israeli government has always been against Judaism, except to try to create a new Judaism where supporting the State if more important than obeying G-d.

    anon 742 why cant u see that the issue wasn’t the goyishe christen father
    the problem is with the israeli court system which is supposedly a court in a so called
    “jewish country” and even USA secular courts award custody of children to the mother why is israel bending over backwards with a backward verdict???thats the issue here!!!

    This boy has a Jewish neshama. It is not in his best interest to be raised by a goy.

    When you take a a break from blaming the zionists, perhaps you should spend a momnet considering that if the frum parties in EY would stop sellingt thier votes to the highest bidder and stop forming new parties and factions to stroke a few more egos they might be in a position to influence the selection of judges.

    Labor, Likud and Kadima know they can do whatever they please and appoint whichever behima they want to the supreme court and they will still be able to buy a few frum votes at a time from the various frum parties when the time comes to form a coalition gov’t.

    The problem is not the secular zionists. They act like a bunch of filthy power hungry egomaniacs, each out for himself and make decisions based on what they think will get them even more power in the next election.

    The problem is that way too often the leaders of our frum political parties act the same way.

    Is having several splintered frum parties instead of one unified Orthodox party really in the interest of torah and frum yiddin?

    The problem is us. We

    Sounds like they were living in Belgium and the mother TOOK the son from Belgium to Israel. This doesn’t sound like a case of Jew vs. Non-Jew but kidnapping. This also happens in Frum Divorces. Kidnap the kid and run to Israel. It’s Illegal either way and by default U.S. Courts will take custody away from the parent that fled.

    If the mother was a goy and the father a Jew there would be no problem, because the child could stay with either parent since he is a goy in any case. But, the child is a Jew because his mother is one and that is the problem. He must be allowed to stay with his mother because he is Jewish and cannot be raised by a non Jewish father.It’s not a simple case of what’s fair or not in the eyes of the world, but what is right according to Jewish law.

    Zionists remember what your state does to orthodox Jews the next time you proudly march in your pro Israel parade.

    And another story from Toronto. 20 years ago an adopted kid who happened to be a goy without his knowledge had a big decision to make at his bar mitzvah. become a real jew or be a goy!

    The kid chose to be a goy. This adult knows gemara and speaks yidish but is a goy! Good choice?

    According to halacha it’s the kids choice when brought up as an adoption and by frum people…..Parents must ask and tell the kid at 13 years of age that he was really a goy and has to give him a chice of bein jewish or not!!

    This happened to a yeshiva kid in my community about 15 years ago. The family court decided (like Shlomo Ha-Melech) to cut the kid in half and make him be a goy 1/2 the time with his father and a Jew 1/2 the time with his mother.
    Needless to say this kid grew up seriously whacked.

    Honestly speaking. Why should he be by his mother more then by his father? Just because he is jewish does not take away from his father being his father. Just like you cringe because he is jewish so to the christians cringe because they feel hes christian . Here though the father is maskim that he keeps his own religion so why is this so difficult to fathom?

    The boys father said “he had no problem allowing his son to continue his Jewish practices and also said his ex-wife should be part of the arrangement”… so, anon 6:22 what is your problem with the “goyishe” parent? He should be commended for his actions!!!

    First it was, allowing to sell Chometz B’Pesach, now it’s, sending back a yiddishe child according to jewish law, to his goyishe father?!
