Bayit Yehudi MK causes uproar by saying God commanded Jews not to sell homes to Arabs

A Knesset Interior Committee meeting erupted into a shouting match after MK Bezalel Smotrich (Bayit Yehudi) defended developers who refuse to sell homes to Arabs.

Wednesday’s meeting was initiated by MKs Zoheir Bahloul (Zionist Union), Essawi Frej (Meretz), Ayman Odeh (Joint List) and Ofer Shelah (Yesh Atid) following news reports that Galil Homes refuses to sell homes to Arabs in the northern town of Ma’alot.

Smotrich said that “anyone who wants to protect the Jewish People and opposes mixed marriages is not a racist. Whoever wants to let Jews live a Jewish life without non-Jews is not a racist.”
