Judea and Samaria Rental Owners File Class Action Suit Against Airbnb

A group of Jewish residents of Judea and Samaria filed a class-action lawsuit against Airbnb in Jerusalem District Court on Thursday, after the travel home-rental company erased 200 listings that they said would no longer be available due to their location in “occupied territories.”

The petitioners argued that removing or restricting the listings exclusively in their area constitutes offensive and blatant discrimination, and asked the court to forbid Airbnb from banning listings based on a property owner’s country of origin.

According to main petitioner, Maanit Rabinovitz of Kida in Samaria, Airbnb never contacted her about the company’s policy change, and that she only found out she had been erased from the system when she heard about it in the news.

She said Airbnb offers rental properties in dozens of conflict regions across the world which are not subjected to any restrictions, such as Tibet.
