Israelis are roughly split between those supporting and opposing the plan of a group of rabbis not to sell or rent property to non-Jews, Press TV reported.
According to a recent survey, 44% of Israelis support a letter, signed earlier this month by dozens of municipal rabbis, calling on Jews to avoid selling or renting homes to non-Jews. The survey showed 48% oppose the call.
Earlier this month, a protest was held in Bat Yam against the rabbis’ real estate plan as well as warnings that Jewish women should keep away from dating Arab men.
Israel regularly issues eviction orders to Palestinian residents of East Jerusalem, on the grounds that their property ownership documents are not valid. However, Palestinians living in the city argue that Israeli officials have been either withholding or denying issuing deeds for their houses.
