Airbnb has a woman from Amsterdam is deleted as verhuurster because she refused her house to rent to four Israeli students.

That confirms a spokesman of the huizenverhuursite after a message on the jewish news website Algemeiner.com.

The woman let the four Israelis know only guests from Israel will accept as the country his policy on the Palestinians to dramatically change. “So unless you are well documented activists are working for a peaceful solution, you should look elsewhere”, she wrote to the four.

Airbnb let then know that this woman almost immediately as verhuurster is deleted. “Discrimination like this is not fit for Airbnb. That’s where you want your business to blend in,” said the spokesman.

The verhuursite recently its non-discrimination policies laid down in a manifesto. That prohibits refusal of guests on the basis, inter alia country of origin, gender, religion or sexual orientation.
