Beverly Hills, CA - The City Council of Beverly Hills, California, unanimously passed a resolution condemning Airbnb’s decision to remove from its website the list of its apartments and vacation units located in “Judea and Samaria ” .

“We find Airbnb’s actions deplorable. On behalf of our residents, this unanimous resolution reflects the city council’s ongoing commitment to Israel and denouncing hatred wherever it exists, “said Beverly Hills Mayor Julian Gold in a statement released by the city .

“Airbnb is not welcome in Beverly Hills because of its anti-Jewish bias,” said Vice Mayor John Mirisch.

“The hatred of the Jews is an illness. We can try to inoculate others against this disease, but we must also protect ourselves from its effects, ” he added.


The resolution adopted by the board states:

“Whereas the city of Beverly Hills is an international tourist destination with visitors from around the world; Whereas Airbnb is a widely used hosting service that has significant influence around the world; Whereas Airbnb’s decision to remove all inscriptions in Jewish settlements in the West Bank is evidence of hatred, prejudice, ignorance and hypocrisy; whereas the shares of Airbnb are contrary to the values ​​we hold dear in Beverly Hills; [...] whereas prejudice and discrimination based on religion have no place in our community, our country and our world;

“[Therefore], the City of Beverly Hills opposes Airbnb’s discriminatory decision to remove all listings in Jewish settlements in the West Bank; the city of Beverly Hills is hereby asking Airbnb to correct this act of disrespect for the land of Israel and restore its rights. In the event that Airbnb does not stop, we call on all civilized people around the world to boycott Airbnb until it renounces its despicable anti-Semitic actions. ”

The anti-zionists have been very busy and effective, there is an online petition with many signatures supporting this move. We can't just kvetch, contact Airbnb directly and let them know you object and will not be using their services!
