This situation would not exist if Israel had followed through with driving the Arabs out of the region after the Six Day War. Now the Antisemitic UN condemns Israel for everything. At this point, I think it is quite obvious that no matter what the Jewish state does, it will be condemned. In an ideal world, granting the Arabs a Palestinian statehood would be an ideal solution, but I cannot help but to think the Arabs would still call for the destruction of Israel.
There is a town in Michigan where only practicing Christians are allowed to buy or inherit real estate. The bylaw has been around since the 1940s, first passed to prevent Jews from buying, and was strengethened in 1986. Non-Christians can rent. The bylaw is being challenged in Court.
Although this bylaw is clealy discriminatory, my initial reaction is its ok in this context. If a group of people want to create their own community, they should be allowed to do so. But I thought I would put it out here to hear other thoughts.
The article is a good read, btw, as it highlights the issues people are facing as the population has grown more progressive but the bylaw has not.

By the way, in case it was missed, in a Major Free Speech Victory, a Federal Court Strikes Down a Law that Punishes Supporters of Israel Boycott
A FEDERAL JUDGE on Tuesday ruled that a Kansas law designed to punish people who boycott Israel is an unconstitutional denial of free speech. The ruling is a significant victory for free speech rights because the global campaign to criminalize, or otherwise legally outlaw, the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions movement has been spreading rapidly in numerous political and academic centers in the U.S. This judicial decision definitively declares those efforts — when they manifest in the U.S. — to be a direct infringement of basic First Amendment rights guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution.

Reportedly, four Israeli soldiers are injured by an alleged explosive. In response, two Palestinians are killed in a tank shelling. Israel also carries out 18 air attacks (CBC Radio 1) On the matter of proportionality, Israel appears to surpass the Nazis who aimed for ten dead for one of their own. Is this not almost as sickening as the West's obsequiousness toward Israel?
