Rabbi Eliyahu Confident in Face of Investigation


Tzfat's Chief Rabbi Shmuel Eliyahu expressed his confidence on Tuesday that the investigation against him for suspected incitement to racism will make his stance clearer - "that the state must act against terror supporting populations within the Arab sector, and not against the entire Arab sector."

According to the Rabbi, there is discrimination against the national camp when it comes to freedom of expression.

The rabbi also welcomed the Attorney General's decision to not open a criminal case in the matter of the halachic ruling in the "Rabbis' letter" which he signed, that forbids the sale or renting out of apartments in Israel to non-Jews.
