"Arab youngsters rented an apartment in a neighborhood in Tel Aviv," he wrote. "They never harmed anyone, nor endangered the wellbeing of 'Zionists' or anyone else.
"They live in harmony with their neighbors. Their house was broken into, racist graffiti was sprayed – the only thing they left untouched was the mezuzah."
A neighbor residing in the building said, "This is a free world and anyone can live wherever they want. They didn't do any harm. I don’t see what's wrong with them living here."
