An Israeli court called for a temporary halt to land leasing in a Karmiel neighborhood unless Israeli Arabs are allowed to lease land as well. The order was issued Tuesday following a petition filed by groups that say the Jewish National Fund, which owns the land, forbids leasing to Israeli Arabs. JNF would not comment, citing legal arguments.
