Moslemman se huwelik implodeer nadat sy skoonpa ontdek het dat hy hom as 'n Ortodokse Jood voorgedoen het om met sy dogter te trou: Veroordeelde eggenoot sê hy het voorheen probeer om tot Judaïsme te bekeer, maar is verwerp, en het die FBI-ondersoek ontketen deur hom as NSA-agent voor te doen
'n Moslem-man het 'n FBI-ondersoek ontketen nadat hy hom as 'n Ortodokse Jood voorgedoen het om te trou, toe beweer hy is 'n NSA-werker nadat hy deur sy familie in hegtenis geneem is.
Eliyah Hawila, 23, wie se regte naam Ali Hassan Hawila is en wat van Libanon kom, 'n aanlyn verhouding met Sally aanknoop, 'n Joodse vrou van Siriese afkoms wat in Brooklyn woon, New York.
In wat lyk na 'n verliefde oomblik van waansin, Haliwa het voortgegaan om 'n hele agtergrond te versin wat verband hou met sy nie-bestaande Joodse wortels nadat sy nuwe bruid agterdogtig geraak het oor sy verlede.
Hy sê hy het behep geraak met die Joodse godsdiens tydens sy eensame tienerjare op die Libanese platteland, en dat hy probeer het om te bekeer, net om deur 'n sinagoge verwerp te word.
By die ontbloot van die misleiding, Sally se ouers het ingetree, het die FBI gebel en hul dogter van haar man weggetrek

Hawila was in werklikheid van die dorp Tirus in die suide van Libanon en is in 'n Sjiïtiese Moslem-huishouding gebore.
Maar niks hiervan is genoem nie, aangesien die egpaar se verhouding ontwikkel en verdiep het.
Hawila went as far as to learn Hebrew in order to recite Jewish prayers as well as signing up to a local Chabad community center at Texas A & M University in College Station, Texas, where he could study the Torah.
He also alluded to his Jewish heritage with his lineage containing fake Ashkenazic names including Meyer Lansky, the name of a former Jewish gangster.
Hawila and Sally eventually wed at a ceremony in New York, but a few weeks after taking their vows, she became suspicious of her husband’s background upon discovering his Lebanese passport that displayed his Arabic name.
Sally immediately told her friends and family who in turn contacted authorities. She is now said to be living in a safe house.
By verhuising na die V.S. Hawila learned Hebrew and appeared to be a devout religious Jew
Hawila has shared wedding video which purports to show a couple having fun and in love
The FBI is now investigating not just the alleged deception but Hawila’s claims that he worked as an agent for the NSA and even produced a ‘fake latter’ from coworkers at the agency to prove his employment.
The US Department of Homeland Security is also examining, together with the Israeli consulate in New York, the possibility the man came into the country illegally.
They say there is no suggestion he was involved in any terrorist behavior.
‘My lying is not justified, but at the same time, I lied because I was in pain, but I want to correct my mistake. I want them to understand where my pain is coming from,’ Hawila said to the Tye van Israel.
‘Things started coming out and the rumors started and they took her away from me, they separated her away from me,’ he said through tears.
Hawila said that his connection to Judaism is not fleeting and had actually begun while he was living with his family in Lebanon as a young boy.
‘This is what I belong to, this is how I feel connected, so I started coming out to people, and saying ‘I’m Jewish.’ People started spitting on me in the streets, I started getting death threats.’
None of Hawila’s family attended his wedding which only deepened suspicion over his background
Hawila claims his family eventually moved to the U.S. legally and he began searching for synagogues in the area, initially hoping to convert from Islam.
‘When I got rejected I started just saying I’m Jewish. My name is Eliyah, and this is the name I chose for myself because I love the story of the prophet Elijah.
After studying engineering at Texas A&M he became active in Jewish and pro-Israel organizations with nobody expressing any doubts over his Middle Eastern background.
‘I still said I came from Lebanon because, jy weet, I read a lot about the Lebanese Jewish community and I was impressed by it.’
Hawila said he claimed to be an NSA agent after being confronted by his wife about his Lebanese passport and Arabic name, op die foto
Hawila said he claimed to be an NSA agent after being confronted by his wife about his Lebanese passport and Arabic name.
‘When she saw the ID, I had to make something up, so I told her, jy weet wat, this is an NSA ID, that I’m on a mission, things like that, I just made something up,’ hy het begin.
‘Time passes and I met with her parents and I told them the same story. But her parents, they just inspect everything,’ hy het bygevoeg.
‘Her father began googling my last name until he reaches my father who tells him stuff about me, daardie: “Geen, he’s not Jewish, he’s not this, he’s not that.”‘
‘So I started making even more stuff up, I was panicking, and they took her away from me, they separated her away from me,’ hy het gesê.
The FBI became involved after there were suspicions aroused that he could be working for a terrorist group set to infiltrate the Jewish community. Hezbollah has its headquarters in southern Lebanon.
‘When the FBI agent came to my place, ek het gesê: “Sir I give you my permission to spy on all my phone calls, I am not affiliated with anybody.”‘
Hawila was in werklikheid van die dorp Tirus in die suide van Libanon en is in 'n Sjiïtiese Moslem-huishouding gebore. He is pictured before he ‘became Jewish’ and moved to the U.S.
The FBI have so far found nothing to suggest he was involved in terror-related activities or falsified any documents.
Hawila also says he never meant to hurt his wife, Sally, but the two are now living apart.
‘If she wants to give me a second chance, she can give me a second chance, If she doesn’t want to, I still can’t blame her. But I want her to know she is the love of my life,’ Hawila said.
Rabbi Yossi Lazaroff of the Jewish Student Center at Texas A&M University where Hawila used to spend time while on campus, has now distanced himself over the entire episode, despite attending his religious Jewish wedding.
‘This is an unfortunate case of a confused youth who struck up a virtual relationship with a member of the Syrian Jewish community who was mortified to discover after her marriage that he was not Jewish,’ Rabbi Lazaroff wrote in a statement.
‘A Chabad rabbi in Texas was asked by the officiating rabbi to walk the groom to the Chupah since he did not have any close relatives in the US.
‘We were clearly all misled about his identity. Our hearts go out to this woman, her family and everyone else deceived by this individual here in Texas and in New York and New Jersey.’
