Ring a bell? Was it "out" or "raus?"

Students who are Palestinian citizens of Israel (within the pre '67 borders) are victims of a campaign to deny housing to them. In the city of Safed the chief rabbi (in Israel chief rabbis are paid government functionaries) has pronounced a ruling (a fatwa?) that no Jews can rent to non-Jews. This movement is spreading around Israel and is part of the general escalation of ethnic cleansing in Israel and the occupied territories. Will the Israeli authorities do anything about it? Don't hold your breath.
