Municipal elections: Jews worried about Arab encroachment

Three people have been elected to the Carmel city council on the explicit platform of fighting off the influx of Arabs. Once Jews made the city economically attractive, Arabs started swarming Carmel, among other Israeli towns.
There is next to nothing a city council can do to stop the encroachment. The Israeli High Court allows Israeli Arabs even into Jewish settlements. Once Arabs move into houses and neighborhoods, the disgusted and frightened Jews move out.
The only legal solution is to include religiosity in each condominium’s charter. Israeli law excludes religious issues from the definition of illegal racism and incitement. It is therefore legal to allow residence in a condominium only to adherents of Judaism who, theoretically, take it upon themselves to abstain from turning on TV or music on the Sabbath.
