Question:

Are Druze considered ovdei avoda zara or may one sell Israeli property to them?
Thanks

Answer:

We may not sell land or an apartment in Israel to a gentile. It is based on the verse (Devarim 7- 2) “lo tichanim”, don’t give them a foothold (meaning selling them land to live in) in the land. According to most poskim, it includes all gentiles, and not only those that are ovdei avoda zara.
