Rabbis Protesting Mixed Jewish/Arab Groups

Haaretz reports that various rabbis were protesting a school near the Ma'alot Dafna and Ramat Eshkol sections of Yerushalayim for offering mixed Jewish/Arab after-school groups in their neighborhood.

The rabbis include:
Rav Moshe Tzadka Shlit"a - The Rosh Yeshiva of Porat Yosef
Rav Yaakov Yosef Shlit"a - son of Rav Ovadia Yosef Shlit"a
Rav Reuven Elbaz Shlit"a - one of the biggest Mekarev Rehokim around

I think the protest is justified for the reasons mentioned in the article plus the fact that arguments against segregationism should not apply in Israel between Jews and non-Jews.

What do you think?

(Respectful comments only please)

This sounds like an item on the govt's agenda. Another way to dilute the Jewish state.

I heard Bush is very much stressing the two-state solution. Think this was done in Jordan at the meeting.
