World The city of Jerusalem has ordered its public kindergartens not to allow foreigners and minorities into its facilities. The notice came from the city’s Emergency and Security Division, according to the Ma’ariv newspaper.

It was distributed more than 18 months ago, Ma’ariv explained. According to the +972 Magazine, the Hebrew usage of the word minorities has been a widely understood euphemism in Israel for ‘Arabs.’ The Racism Crisis Center sent a letter to the Jerusalem Municipality last week warning that the instructions were illegal, the magazine added.
