Anti-Zionists suffer stinging defeat in Jaffa

In a stinging, bitter rebuke, a Tel Aviv courtroom today ruled against an anti-Zionist effort to prevent Religious-Zionist Jews from establishing a small neighborhood in Jaffa, the port city located just south of Tel Aviv with a very large arab population. The lawsuit was filed by ACRI (Association for Civil Rights in Israel), an anti-democratic, anti-Zionist/anti-Semitic, leftist organization that opposes the existence of the Jewish State (for more information about ACRI, go here).

In the ruling against the anti-Zionists, Tel Aviv District Court Judge Yehuda Zaft delivered a scathing condemnation of ACRI: “I would note parenthetically that on the face of it, the petitioners’ position reflects a built-in contradiction. On the one hand, they claim against limiting the availability of the apartments to the national-religious sector in a manner that is discriminatory and unequal – while on the other hand, as can be learned from the petition itself, the petitioners have acted and are acting to find housing for the Arab community in Jaffa; it need not be assumed that they are seeking land for construction for everyone, but rather only for one specific sector.”

“Had the winner of this tender targeted the apartments for the Arab sector,” concluded Judge Zaft, “it appears that the petitioners would not have found anything wrong with this.”

A bad day for anti-Semites, but a good day for Zionists.
