Christians not allowed

Jaffa Gate to the Old City of Jerusalem (Wikipedia)Evangelical Christian evicted from Jerusalem’s Jewish Quarter

The government owned Company for the Reconstruction and Development of the Jewish Quarter in the Old City of Jerusalem is trying to evict a resident because he’s not Jewish. The person in question is an evangelical Christian, who is in the country in order to build closer ties between evangelicals and right wing organizations. In September last year, Lorena Sokolovsky, landlady and mother in law to the Mayor of Jerusalem, Nir Barkat, received a letter from the company’s assets director stating that she was renting a property to “a person who did not match the company’s population criteria…(and) you are requested to evacuate the property and ensure it is only populated by persons matching the company’s criteria.” Shlomo Atias, a member of the Shas political party and director of the government owned company, confirmed that the reason for the eviction is that the person is not Jewish. “A Christian can live in the Christian quarter” he said, adding that he had to inform the landlady following complaints from neighbors.
