“Airbnb blacklists Jewish apartments in Judea and Samaria – not Palestinian apartments, not apartments in Turkish occupied Cyprus, in Moroccan occupied Sahara, not in Tibet or the Crimea. Airbnb’s policy is the very definition of anti-Semitism. No one should use its services.”

Deputy Minister in the Prime Minister’s Office, MK Michael Oren

Coalition for Jewish Values

“The only thing unique to the homes AirBNB now refuses to list is that they are owned by Jews, so their claim that this is anything other than anti-Semitic racism is an utter farce.”

— Rabbi Pesach Lerner, President 

“This kind of persecution has no place in any society and must end. Airbnb should reverse its decision, and I will continue to work with my colleagues to combat anti-Semitism here and abroad.”

Senator Ted Cruz of Texas

“BDS is nothing more than warmed-over anti-Semitism… They [Airbnb] do not treat anybody else in the entire world like this; it’s only targeted in these Jewish communities… We’re also going to review how Florida interacts with Airbnb; I know that state workers are allowed to use Airbnb for official travel. That is not going to be acceptable with me as governor.”

Florida Governor-elect Ron DeSantis

City Council of Beverly Hills, CA

“We call upon all civilized people across the globe to boycott Airbnb until such time as they desist from these despicable anti-Semitic actions.”

— The City Council, by Unanimous Consent

Academic Council for Israel

“Airbnb has now become the poster boy for corporate anti-Semitism by singling Israel out while ignoring the real human rights abusers of the Middle East, including the Palestinian Authority and Hamas.”

— Sam Edelman, Executive Director

Club Z

“If AirBnb singles out Jews for living on the Jewish ancestral land, but continues to do business with Arabs living on the same land, as well as all other disputed lands, then clearly, this is a case of anti-semitism. We will take our business elsewhere.”

— Masha Merkulova, Executive Director

Endowment for Middle East Truth (EMET)

Hasbara Fellowships

“Airbnb’s recent decision to remove Israeli homes in Judea & Samaria from their listing, is a classic case of the double standard placed against Jews in Israel and a clear display of bigotry, discrimination, and anti-Semitism. We demand that Airbnb reverse their decision and re-instate these Israeli communities into AirBNB. Bigotry and discrimination against Jews is not ok.”

— Rabbi Elliot Mathias, Executive Director

Israeli-American Civic Action Network

Proclaiming Justice to The Nations

“This is not about disputed territories as AIRBNB has listings in Moroccan occupied West Sahara, Turkish occupied Cyprus and more, it is only the Jewish properties in the Jewish homeland that are banned. Let’s call it what it is: anti-Semitism.”

— Laurie Cardoza-Moore, President

Religious Zionists of America

Rhode Island Coalition for Israel

“We urge Rhode Islanders who oppose anti-Semitism to boycott Airbnb. This is a boycott instigated by the anti-Semitic BDS movement.”

— Mary Greene, President

Russian Jewish Community Foundation

“This continues a Nazi tradition of boycotting Jewish businesses. I will boycott AirBnB and ask my social media friends to follow my example.”

— Alex Koifman, President

Scholars for Peace in the Middle East

Simon Wiesenthal Center

“This is double standard anti-Semitism pure and simple. Nowhere else on the planet has Airbnb stopped making its service available in disputed territories, except Judea and Samaria.”

— Rabbi Marvin Hier, Founder and Dean, and Rabbi Abraham Cooper, Associate Dean and Director, Global Social Action Agenda

World Likud Movement

Zionist Organization of America

“The Zionist Organization of America (ZOA) urges all decent people to stop using Airbnb’s services until Airbnb ends this Jew-hating, anti-Semitic policy.”

— Morton Klein, President

“I call today on all those who support Israel and oppose discriminatory boycotts: they should cease using Airbnb and turn to other services.”

Strategic Affairs Minister, MK Gilad Erdan

“Having served as the Head of Administration at the US Embassy in Kigali, Rwanda in the spring of 1994, I know firsthand the results of a policy designed to make a land free of a targeted group. Airbnb has apparently sided with Hamas and Fatah in believing Judea should be Judenrein. Jew-hatred is the word for this thought/boycott, and until it reverses this decision, Airbnb should be boycotted by fair-minded people worldwide.”

Ken Kowalchek, US Foreign Service, Ret.

“To challenge this Antisemitic decision… all pro-Israel people should switch to Booking.com.”

Adam Milstein, National Chairman, Israeli American Council

“Just deactivated my Airbnb account. The answer to absurd boycotts of Israel is to boycott the boycotters. Many of the areas affected will be part of Israel in any peace deal. I’d rather pay more in a hotel than subsidize antisemitism or support Palestinian terror.”
