The Anti-Defamation League called on an Israeli rabbi to reverse a ruling it linked to threats to a Jewish landlord who rented to Arabs. "All citizens of the State of Israel, according to the law, have equal rights including renting apartments," the ADL said in a statement. "Citizens should not be discriminated against for their ethnic background." It called on Rabbi Yosef Eliahu, the chief rabbi of Safed, to reverse a ruling calling on Jewish residents of Safed not to rent to Arabs.
