Rabbi Michael Aravov, who lives in the neighborhood, said “there is no place in the world where refugees have human rights and residents to not.” Another resident said that “the first rain will be here soon, the sewage will overflow, and all of the diseases the Africans brought with them will float up.” City Council member Binyamin Babayof (Shas) called on residents to refrain from renting apartments to refugees.
