Top Rabbi Says Jewish law Forbids Renting Houses to Arabs 
By Nadav Shragai 

The chairman of the Yesha rabbinical council and chief 
rabbi of Kiryat Arba, Rabbi Dov Lior, on Wednesday issued 
a halakhic ruling stating that it is forbidden by Jewish 
law to employ Arabs or rent homes to them. 

In an interview published by "Eretz Israel Shelanu" (Our 
Land of Israel), to be distributed this Saturday in various 
synagogues, Lior said that "since this is a matter of 
endangering souls, it is clear that it is completely 
forbidden to employ them and rent houses to them in Israel. 
Their employment is forbidden not only at yeshivas, but at 
factories, hotels and everywhere." 

In the interview, Rabbi Lior backed the decision made by 
the administration of the Mercaz Harav yeshiva in Jerusalem 
to prevent Prime Minister Ehud Olmert from visiting the 
school after an Israeli Arab terrorist killed eight 
students there two weeks ago. "How can you welcome a man 
who acts against our holy Torah and continues to lead the 
people of Israel toward great danger?" Lior said. 

"They were right in refusing to welcome such a personality 
in the yeshiva's halls," he added.

Rabbi Lior criticized the rabbis who didn't obey Rabbi 
Abraham Shapira, who instructed Jewish soldiers to refuse 
orders during the 2005 withdrawal from the Gaza Strip. "If 
the public had ignored the so-called "rabbis" who came out 
against these instructions, we may very well have spared 
the great pain [of the disengagement] from the people of 
Israel," he said. 

Recently, several rabbis led by Rabbi Lior have issued a 
precedent setting halakhic ruling that Israel must shoot 
civilian populations in areas from whence attacks on Jewish 
communities originate. 

Attorney Einat Horvitz from the Religious Action Center of 
Reform Judaism said in response to the interview that "we 
view with great concern the wave of calls against Arabs 
since the terrible terror attack. This is an ever growing 
phenomenon of racist incitement that distorts Judaism and 
is also illegal. We call upon the attorney general to shake 
off his apathy and take action to enforce the laws that 
prohibit these calls."
