Another day, another heartwarming story out of Israel about 18 prominent rabbis urging Jewish landlords not to rent to Arabs:

“According to a report which first appeared on Channel 1 television, most of the signatories are from Safed, a city that has seen an increase in its Arab student population that is enrolled at the town’s local college.”

Remember when this tactic was used against Jews?  Even today, it’s still, very unfortunately, widely used against people of color, and it’s pretty illegal.

Also, I’m just totally putting this out there, but alienating, and probably pissing off a bunch of young, impressionable college aged minds might, oh I don’t know, continue the trend of Arabs and Israelis hating each other.  In the process, giving some feeble minded idiots who can’t get an apartment more of a reason to go blow themselves up.

If there is anything that earns the tag of “really shitty idea of the day,” this would be it.
