Clash over Arabs moving into Jewish towns reflects deeper conflict

The High Court on Sunday did not reach a decision regarding a petition filed by the NGO Adalah against the Israel Lands Authority and construction company Dar Nofarim for the refusal of a construction company to sell homes to Arabs.

Adalah – The Legal Center for Arab Minority Rights in Israel, “argues against inequality and racism” in the marketing of apartments, Mysanna Morany, a lawyer involved in the case for Adalah told The Jerusalem Post.

The incident under dispute is from 2013 when a construction company allegedly refused to sell a home in a housing project in Afula to an Arab family. Morany said the construction company argued the project was marketed as an “unmixed” neighborhood for its Jewish clients.
