Israeli Arabs strike to protest murderous violence in their community

The ruling body of Israel’s Arabs declared a general strike as of Thursday following a series of murders within their communities in protest against ineffective policing. All places of business, schools and public institutions will remain closed. The Ministry of Education, however, announced that schools in Arab locations will function as usual. The 13 new and returned Arab lawmakers will boycott the swearing-in on Thursday of the 120 members of the new Knesset. Government sources countered that while violence in the Arab community must be addressed as a central issue by the next government, leaders calling the strike barred the establishment of police stations in Arab locations and opposed the drive to collect unauthorized weapons.

      I can’t really see why you would even waste breath or energy on such a people, they will never learn and it seems they will never tell the truth either so let them enjoy the consequences of their actions.
