Dating non jew
It is pretty clear that the Patriarchs hated the Cannanites (and the other pagans) BECAUSE they engaged in horrible idol worship (child sacrifice etc.) NOT because they "weren't Jewish".
In addition, it is pretty clear that Jewish ancestry (as well as tribal status) was once determined by the father and not by the mother.
But Jewish law is a religion that is passed down through the mother, so if a male Jew marries a non-Jewish woman, the children would not be regarded as true Jews.
Therefore any traditions that Jews have kept for centuries, would be slowly eroded forever.
In fact quite the opposite, because when a Jew marries a non-Jew or assimilates into another culture, it raises concerns in Israel and among the Jewish communities that its way of life, its heritage and Jewish traditions are under threat, possibly irreversibly.
Israel is relatively small, as are its numbers of true Jewish people, relatively speaking.
Which brings me to my point: Many non-Jewish women (and men) in the United States express strong interest in Judaism. And the oral torah ALWAYS overrides the written torah when it comes to halacha!

This is completely on topic and what I'm saying is the truth. Because you fail to understand that you are having trouble with so many other issues. More importantly: Do you believe that the founders of the Ashkenazic community of Eastern Europe instituted mass conversions in order to marry gentile women?

In addition to our ancestors having done that (at least in the first generation(s)Tanach is replete with accounts of kings and commoners taking non-Jewish spouses.
