There is a town somewhere in Israel where a Palestinian family has been stonewalled and stopped in their tracks from buying a house in a predominantly Jewish area. The buyer has been through the courts and I think, if memory serves, it is now at the Supreme Court. The residents in the area want to keep its ethnicity 'Jewish'. While this is not an example of ethnic cleansing per se (expulsion), it is another example of ethnicity playing a major role in Israeli life.

First, they were not Palestinian but Israeli arabs. Second, they recently won their case and got the purchasing rights to the land at the original price which at today's prices is practically free. I read this about a month ago or less on Haaretz.

Hope this irons it out for you.
