MK Nitzan Horowitz (Meretz) called on Tuesday for rabbis who forbade Jews from renting or selling property to gentiles to be fired.

"This is the worst kind of racism, which comes from rabbis who are paid by the state" Horowitz said on Tuesday. "All they do is encourage hatred and destroy Israeli democracy."

"These rabbis are taking advantage of their stature, which leads to incitement," he added. Horowitz also said there should be a criminal investigation of the rabbis.
