You need to give it some context.

Are you offended because you think that towel represented something palestinian and they make fun of it?
Or are you surprised because arab weddings have similar rituals?

I have never been to a wedding but I know that on orthodox jewish weddings men and women are separated. Maybe they wrapped towels over the woman in order to allow her to celebrate with men.

Are you referring to the ritual killing of a Palestine maiden? This is common in Jewish weddings, yes. As in weddings all over the world actually. Whenever there is a reason to celebrate in the West, a Palestine maiden is sacrificed.
:lol:

    This has nothing to do with me being Palestinian or Martian. I really did not mean anything wrong when posting this but I just wanted to see if these rituals are familiar there.

    I did a bit of research. It's apparently called a "mitzvah tantz"


    This one has some dope ultras (pun intended) chanting along.

    I've been to multiple Jewish weddings in the U.S. None of them did that. There's the breaking glasses underfoot, there's the being carried around in a chair, etc. But burqas would be a new one for me.

    I guess you've been to regular jews' wedding, not orthodox. They have many rituals.
