The Anti-Defamation League issued a statement condemning racism towards Beduin students in Safed on Thursday. Most recently, an 89-year-old holocaust survivor and resident of the northern city was harassed for renting an apartment to Beduin students studying at the Safed Academic College.

The ADL statement said, "All citizens of the state of Israel, according to the law, have equal rights including renting apartments." The statement continued, "Citizens should not be discriminated against for their ethnic background."
