The Knesset convened Wednesday to discuss a ruling issued by 50 city rabbis against selling or renting apartments to Arabs, and heard harsh condemnations from Arab lawmakers.
Knesset Member Ahmad Tibi said during the discussion, "I am certain that the number of rabbis will rise. Since the Arabs are a Semitic people – this is anti-Semitism. These rabbis are skinheads acting against the Arabs." (Roni Sofer)
