Israeli Jews who oppose the edict issued by some 40 rabbis forbidding Jews to rent or sell apartments to Arabs narrowly outnumber those who support it, according to a new poll released Tuesday.

The joint Israeli-Palestinian poll conducted by the Harry S. Truman Research Institute for the Advancement of Peace at the Hebrew University and the Palestinian Center for Policy and Survey Research in Ramallah found that 44% of Jews support and 48% oppose the call to avoid renting apartments to Arabs.
