Rabbis call on Public to Inform on those Renting to Arabs

The issue of the Rabbis who are urging Jews not to rent to Arabs just won’t go away. They are now calling on the public to “inform” on those renting to Arabs. Those disgusted by these actions held a counter march and rally to protest against racist lawmakers/Rabbis in Tel Aviv.


Public invited to inform on those renting to Arabs

(YNetnews.com)

The Lehava organization issued a notice Sunday evening, inviting the public to call a voicemail service and record the names of Jewish Israelis renting apartments to Arabs. Lehava, identified with supporters of Meir Kahane, thus adds its weight to the recent call by 50 prominent rabbis to avoid renting to Arabs which, the organization says, amounts to no less than assimilation.

According to the notice, the information given anonymously will be verified, after which the names will be published as a mark of disgrace “so the public can decide what to do with them.”

“If we were in the time of (former Prime Minister David) Ben Gurion or (former Prime Minister) Golda (Meir), the organization would undoubtedly receive a governmental citation,” said a Lehava activist to Ynet, claiming the activists were taking the rabbis’ letter one step further.

“The organization wants to apply this important ruling, while our main aim is to counter assimilation. We publish our number, people will call, then we’ll make checks of course, and as soon as we see the information is correct we’ll publish it in a list of disgrace.”

The activist added that the publication of the list of names will not actively include a call to harm the people involved.

He also referred to what he termed “assimilation,” saying, “Unfortunately, this is a serious problem, and we hope the rabbis’ halachic ruling will put a stop to it. This is an existential struggle for the character of the Jewish State, and we don’t intend to give up.”


 

This new initiative comes just a week after 50 rabbis signed a position paper which stated that renting or selling apartments or land in Israel to non-Jews is forbidden according to halacha.

“The neighbors and acquaintances of the seller or renter must warn him personally first and later they are allowed to make this matter public, distance themselves from him, avoid commercial ties, and so on,” the letter reads.

    “Israel is surrounded by hostile arab nations..thats why they have to act like hornets to defend their nests..”

    The Nazis said the same thing about the Jews. “It’s them who hate us! They are trying to kill us! WE’RE the ones being persecuted! We’re only defending our heritage and race from the evil Jews. It’s their fault, not ours!” Watch the Nazi propaganda film, “The Eternal Jew” (it’s on google video.) Much of Islamophobic propaganda is practically lifted from that film, but they have just replaced the word “Jew” with “Muslim.”

    This is sick. Enough said. And to commenter, “Neutral”; the irony of your name just sickens me further. Hornets. Pfft.
    Having made manifest my disgust at these rabbis, and lest I say anything vile (especially at Neutral), I take my leave.

    Jihad bob I love how its perfectly fine for fundamentalist jews to fallow the talmud. Yet a muslim women covering herself is somehow a horrible thing.

  • jihad bobs dad

    Not really surprised by these Rabbis, if they do follow the Talmud this is the natural thing to do!

    You can’t blame israelis for what they done..if i were them, i would do the same thing too..

    Israel is surrounded by hostile arab nations..thats why they have to act like hornets to defend their nests..

    Most Muslims in the United States used to vote for Republicans (back in the day), but now GOP bigotry has scared them all away. And let’s also not forget the enormous damage Bush did to the GOP’s reputation.

    It has nothing to do with the topic, but since most posts are contaminated by trolls and puppets I thought here it would be noticed, it’s an article about a Muslim who left the Republican Party:

    You’d think of all people the jews would be the last people to discriminate considering their history and they’ve been through. Imagine a muslim iman or government doing or saying this. They’d be war… No doubt about it

  • Nur Alia

    Never Again…

    as long is it isnt Israelis I guess.

    This is what happens when people look the other way when there is lawlessness. Soon the offender gets bolder and we get this.

    I think it is important that we understand the steps of genocide. First, there is rhetoric, then there is ‘incidents’ that are ignored, then excused. Then there is attacks on the targeted victims institutions, religion, and the excuse ‘it doesnt have to be this way if they would adopt our way of life’ (assimilation policies) Then it is force segreation, and displacement from thier legal homes. Then genocide.

    It is awful to me that the ONLY people willing to accept and protect the Jewish oppressed people from the Nazi regimes willingly and without question were the Arabs and Muslims.

    I have to pray that, as a Muslimah that my heart will never grow so cold as the think people should regret a decision to save another’s life, only to have those he has saved turn around and oppress his children.

    I have to tell you truly, it is getting harder each day.

  • Khushboo

    Even in this country Rabbis and other Jews are being called “traitors” for having interfaith dialogues with Muslims. So much pressure on them by bigots!

  • Crow

    Lets see scholar robert spencer is screaming hysterically is screaming about creeping Sharia law taking over the US, an event thats only happening in the bigotted, hate-filled, simple minds of Islamaphobes. But hes totally cool with the zionists (not the Jews) creeping fascism. But then again scholar robert spencer has always had a soft spot for fascists…like avigdor leiberman….geert wilders etc

    About 5,000 people, mainly boys and young men, rallied for hours on a square just outside the Kremlin Saturday, chanting “Russia for Russians!” as well as an obscene slur against people from Russia’s Caucasus region.

    Yes, Russia is for Russians: just like Chechnya, Dagestan, Tartarstan, and many other Muslim-majority regions are for Russians.

    Kremlin vows to punish violent racists after clash
    AP

    MOSCOW – The hooligans and racists who rampaged in Moscow this weekend will be tracked down and punished, President Dmitry Medvedev declared, warning Monday that Russia itself could be torn apart if seething ethnic tensions spin out of control.

    About 5,000 people, mainly boys and young men, rallied for hours on a square just outside the Kremlin Saturday, chanting “Russia for Russians!” as well as an obscene slur against people from Russia’s Caucasus region. They brutally beat some dark-skinned passers-by, and when police moved against the demonstrators, rioting broke out that injured more than 30 people.

    In addition, a native of Kyrgyzstan was stabbed to death by unidentified assailants in southern Moscow early Monday, police spokesman Gennady Bogachev said.

    Resentment is rising among Slavic Russians over the growing presence in Moscow and elsewhere of people from the Caucasus, the home of numerous ethnic groups, most of them Muslim. People from other parts of the former Soviet Union, including Central Asia and Azerbaijan, also face strong ethnic discrimination in Russia.

    I’m confused: do you Islamophobes want Muslims to assimilate or not?

    dear god in heaven. identifying with the aggressor, perhaps? i mean this sincerely, may god help israel.

  • mindy1

    Good lord do they not see they are acting like those who persecuted them? :(

  • Justin

    There is nothing fascist about asking people to spy on their fellow citizens who engage in treacherous equal-opportunity renting. (sarcasm intended).
