    Jerusalem, 15th December, (RHC)--More than 900 rabbis from around the world have signed a letter expressing "great shock and pain" at a ruling backed by scores of Israeli rabbis forbidding Jews from renting or selling property to non-Jews.

    The letter describes the ruling as a "painful distortion of our tradition" and a "desecration of God's name" and appeals to Israeli rabbis to "take a public stand and oppose those who misrepresent our tradition".

    When we read "mullahs around the world condemn the palisturd practice of not renting to joze and non-muslims", then we will talk.

    "There have been calls for rabbis who backed the ruling and whose salaries are paid from public funds to be disciplined or removed from their posts.

    Israel's attorney-general has described the ruling as 'inappropriate public conduct'".
