Renting To Arabs

Renting To Arabs

Rabbi David Ellenson ("Rabbis’ Ban Of Renting To Arabs Must Be Condemned,” Opinion, Dec. 17) and the rest of the politically correct crowd are whining and making a big deal about a ruling signed by 49 Israeli rabbis. Without going into the merits, I would like to note: this is a ruling signed by a handful of rabbis and condemned by the Israeli government. It certainly is not Israeli law.
In contrast to this, it is Palestinian law not to sell real estate to Jews, under penalty of death.
Has Rabbi Ellenson condemned that?
