Protesters rallied in Jerusalem against a rabbis' ban on renting apartments to Arabs.
About 150 demonstrators on Wednesday night took up positions across from Jerusalem's Great Synagogue to protest the rabbinic ruling, issued Tuesday by dozens of Israel's municipal chief rabbis.
Municipal chief rabbis' salaries are paid for by the state.
In how many democracies are the salaries of clerics paid for by the state?
In how many democracies have the clerics supported a ban on housing based on ethnicity?
AND YET some ignoramuses still repeat the falsehood that Israel is "the only democracy in the Middle East."
