This Is Every Citizen's Inalienable Right
An Israeli Arab couple is trying to purchase a home in Karmiel, but the purchase is being thwarted by the ILA (Israel Land Authority). The reason: they are Arabs. This is racism in its clearest form, and while I am happy to know that Israel's High Court of Justice ruled such practices illegal, I am completely appalled by the fact that the ILA sees it fit to violate the Court's decisions. Conducting business is every citizen's right, and any authority attempting to subvert this right on racist grounds needs to be stopped!
