In another social experiment elsewhere in the world, Israeli rabbis decry selling or renting property to non-Jews:

Yet it's perfectly fine the other way around. They were even passing out flyers on campus today.

Really, the world is an f'ed up place. There is enough to go around and god, despite what samF may say, wants us to share with everyone. Remember the "thou shall not judge bit? It was in the OT ya know and BTW the Jews got that memo too.

Suicide by zealotry.

We should have a special place, a spot on earth with no other good use, where all the MEM fundi-fanatics can go and kill each other without bothering the rest of us.

Are you saying the Arabs are going to kill the Jews?

I am saying that this sort of fundamentalism will so profoundly weaken Israel, pushing it to a theo-fascist society, that Israel will cause a war that will pretty much destroy the whole area. I am not, by the way, holding the insane fundi-theo-fascist moslems (I'd not dignify their perversion of Islam with a capital letter) harmless. It's just that the insanity of one's enemies is not an excuse for becoming insane, much less in exactly the same way. Beyond that, the state of Israel has always held itself out to be special. This sort of racist intolorance is not special, it's rabbinical blasphemy.

They are special because God chose them no? something about 440,000 or some such thing.

"Israeli law guarantees full rights to non-Jewish citizens."

This statement is, of course, utter bull****.

Isrial is a theocracy masquerading as a democracy. That works as long s the Jews are a majority, but the birthrate of Jews is comparatively low and they see a time when they will be minority in their "own" country.. They are frightened.

We do. It is called the Promised Land.

That's why they ship in Russians of Jewish descent to live in the West Bank settlements. They even pay them to move, and have housing waiting for them.
