Can a Jew sell property in Israel to a Druze?


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


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.


Avodah Zara 20b,  Y:D 151-7.
