Airbnb removes listings from Israeli settlements

Have the billionaires of Airbnb looked at a map of the world lately? Why in this day and age are Jews such a threat to rich Americans? And why does this hyper-morality only apply to Israel where 1/3 of the world's Jews live? Airbnb is established in Cuba! The 3 founders of Airbnb are billionaires imposing their political biases on a few folks who want to rent their apartments to tourists. These Big Tech billionaires are giving Capitalism a bad name.

"Last week, Airbnb announced that it would be removing all listings from Israeli settlements in the West Bank. The news came after supporters of the boycott, divestment, and sanctions (BDS) movement campaigned for Airbnb to remove the listings."

“Gov. Bruce Rauner [IL] attempted Thursday to pressure Airbnb into reversing its ban on lodging listings in the disputed West Bank, calling for an investigation into whether the company is violating Illinois laws prohibiting backlash against Israel's treatment of Palestinians.” (Belleville News Democrat)

“Jews have owned property in places like West Bank towns Gush Etzion and Hebron for centuries. Under the new Airbnb policy, rooms and units located in those places will not be listed by the company.

But if an Arab owns some property a hundred yards away and purchased it a week ago, it can be listed. That is religious profiling.” Letter to the editor, LA times

Clearly, Airbnb’s foray into foreign policy is naive and discriminatory.
