This editorial goes overboard in labeling the rabbis as religious racist fanatics, simply for giving politically incorrect advice to landlords. Would the editors honestly be content living next door to illegal aliens or to potentially hostile Arabs, in their own neighborhood? A free press is built on freedom of speech, so any newspaper should be loath to call for censorsing of rabbis or anyone else. Rabbis are expected to take stands on issues, and cannot be held to the same neutrality rules as ordinary civil servants. With some justice, the editors may resent having to pay taxes which support religious figures (or any other publicly funded project). Can your newspaper explore the merits of privatizing religious funding in Israel, in a rational and respectful manner?
