Barak: Rabbis', wives' letters part of racist tidal wave

Defense Minister Ehud Barak criticized racist letters issued recently by male and female rabbis regarding Jewish-Arab relations and the renting of apartments to Arabs.

 

"The rabbis' letters is part of a racist tidal wave threatening to sweep Israeli society into dark and dangerous zones. The Labor Party under my authority is working to draw all of Israel's citizens together, in the spirit of the Declaration of Independence," Barak said. (Attila Somfalvi)
