Racist rabbi called to task by Israeli Cabinet Minister

UPI reports:

Scores of leading Israeli rabbis have signed a religious ruling forbidding Jews from renting or selling properties to non-Jews officials said...

The ruling comes just months after Safed's chief rabbi Shmuel Eliyahu along with 18 other rabbis, signed a petition urging Jews to refrain from renting or selling homes to non-Jews, the newspaper said.
At the time Eliyahu called on town residents to refrain from renting to Arab students who attend college in the town, Haaretz said. 
Eliyahu was the most senior rabbi to sign the petition at the time, causing Minister of Minority Affairs Avishay Braverman to ask Justice Minister Yaakov Neeman to investigate whether charges of incitement should be brought against him.
Braverman also demanded Eliyahu be suspended from his municipal post, the newspaper said.

Think about all the lies and misconcepts the Russians used during W.W.Two? Lucky for us there were a few people who could see through the underbrush and tell there was a monster lurking amongst the shadows! Wake Up! Have a good day.
