Yet another installment of "Your Religion is not an excuse for bigotry".

"A number of leading rabbis who signed on to a religious ruling to forbid renting homes to gentiles – a move particularly aimed against Arabs – defended their decision on Tuesday with the declaration that the land of Israel belongs to the Jews. Dozens of Israel's municipal chief rabbis signed on to the ruling, which comes just months after the chief rabbi of Safed initiated a call urging Jews to refrain from renting or selling apartments to non-Jews."

Any bets on what the response from Jewish organizations would be if anyone in the western world had a policy of not renting to Jews?
