Is Hollywood becoming Holywood?
In a shocking show of adherence to biblical values and pro-Israel sentiment, the city of Beverly Hills chose to stand with the residents of the restored ancient lands of Judea and Samaria! The so-called “West Bank” has a rich historical, archaeological and spiritual connection to the Jewish people.
While “Airbnb”, a notably successful recent real estate and hospitality invention, chooses to adopt Anti-Semitic practices… the people of southern California stand against them. Hallelujah!
Beverly Hills boycotts Airbnb after Israeli listings removed
The Beverly Hills City Council in California unanimously voted to remove its own city’s apartment listings from Airbnb and to condemn the company for banning 200 Jewish listings in the West Bank, known in Israel as ancient Judea and Samaria.
“Airbnb is not welcome in Beverly Hills as long as its policies are based on anti-Jewish double standards,” said the city’s Vice Mayor John Mirisch. “We can try to inoculate others against this malady but we also must protect ourselves against its effects.”
“Jew hatred” and anti-Semitism are behind the company’s move, the city alleged.
“On behalf of our residents, this unanimous resolution reflects the city council’s ongoing commitment to Israel and to exposing hatred anywhere it exists,” Beverly Hills Mayor Julian Gold said in an official statement.
Last week the home rental giant decided to boycott Jewish homes in the West Bank saying it must steer clear of disputed territories. However, it still lists rentals in Moroccan-occupied Western Sahara, Turkish-occupied Northern Cyprus and Russian-occupied portions of Ukraine. Hopefully, AIRBNB will realize the absurdity of their move in light of the recent Russian aggression against Ukraine.
“In the event that Airbnb does not stop, we call upon all civilized people across the globe to boycott Airbnb until such time as they desist from these despicable anti-Semitic actions,” the resolution concluded.
Come on people, now, smile on your brother… everybody get together; try to love one another right now.
Including the tiny Jewish population of planet earth.
