They story is always the same. Young Jewish girl goes partying. Jewish girl gets picked up by nice Arab boy. Girl falls in love. Girl gets married and moves to Arab village. Girl finds herself a prisoner unable to escape.

Unlike the movie 'Not without my daughter', in Israel captive women have some outside assistance in escaping with the help of an organization called Yad L'Achim.

The JPost has the story of a woman named Oshrit Ochana (formerly of Ashdod) who just yesterday escaped from Gaza.

Ochana and her four children - Mahmoud, seven; Abdel Rahman, five; Sali, six; and Asma, not yet two; managed to escape from under the watchful eyes of her Arab husband's family.

Through the assistance of Yad L'Achim the authorities at Erez were ready to help her cross out of Gaza, and now will be helping her set up her new life of freedom.

Unfortunately there are plenty of more Jewish women that fall prey to these Arab suitors and are held captive in Arab villages throughout the country with no way of escape.

Pretty amazing that they were able to get out of Gaza.

I don't think that Yad Le'achim should get credit for here escape, though. She did it herself.
