Hesder Yeshiva head and former MK Rabbi Haim Druckman on Sunday warned of the dangers of renting or selling apartments to Israeli-Arabs, despite the fact that he abstained from signing the controversial edict put forward by nearly 50 rabbis last week admonishing Israelis from renting to non-Jews.
"An Israeli-Arab that wants to buy or rent an apartment in Israel is usually funded by enemy parties and thus it is forbidden to sell to him," said Druckman in an interview on Army Radio.Druckman stated that he refused to sign the letter because it spoke of "all the non-Jews," but added that "enemy agents want to use our greed to realize their right of return."
"An Arab is willing to pay a quarter million (NIS) more than what the apartment is worth," said Druckman. "They have a desire to take control of our towns and we must defend ourselves. We have nothing against non-Jews, but Arabs are trying to disinherit us from our land," he added.
