A poll shows 44% of Jewish Israelis support rabbis' calls to refrain from renting apartments to Arabs in Safed
Less than half - 48% - of Jews in Israel oppose these calls. The survey shows that 40% of Israel's Jewish population supports a law that would enable small communities to reject new candidates for admission on the grounds of cultural-social "lack of suitability." Again, less than half of Jewish respondents, 48%, oppose such exclusion. A majority of Jews in the country, 55%, support a law that would require people seeking Israeli citizenship to vow loyalty to the Jewish, democratic state; just 27% of Jewish respondents oppose this law.
