    Good grief. Time for a curfew and a rule of “no congregating in groups of more than five people until things calm down. Perhaps the government should organize a forum of Arab-Israelis and Jewish Israelis to discuss the situation. Have government representatives speak to all law enforcement personnel. Set clear rules and guidelines for behavior for everyone by broadcasting it on TV and radio and in all media sources.

      First, let’s be clear. It is a minority of our Israeli-Arab citizens that are engaging in this kind of behaviour — but that still works out to be thousands. If we were to implement any sort of curfew on the problematic Arab communities in Israel, we would immediately be labeled as being Apartheid by the international community –and they wouldn’t adhere to the curfew at any rate.

      About 20% of the Arab community in Israel is batshit crazy and that hasn’t changed in the past 30-odd years. What has changed are the positions of the U.S. and E.U. in the past approximately 6 years with wishy-washyness in the 5 years prior to that. Given the breakdown in our neighbouring countries, the rise of extremist armies (Isis, in Libya etc) and most particularly EU and U.S. tacit approval, that 20% minority has been slowly making the move from being largely vocal to …rioting. They have essentially been given the green light.

        Obama is not only the worst president ever, he is evil and so are so many of the leaders in European countries. It’s sickening. As it is now, the US is not a reliable ally (Obama and the corrupt, despicable State Department), though Israel does have good allies within the US.
        Yes, I realize that the fanatic Arab-Israelis are a small minority, and I was not just proposing a curfew for Arab-Israelis, but for everyone and for the safety of everyone. Ditto with the no congregating rule. Those who do not adhere to the curfew should be arrested, whether they are Arab or Jewish. The rule is just for the safety of everyone. I’ve been in situations where there was an early curfew imposed, and it was not bad and those who violated it went to jail.
        Stop the transportation at a certain time and that will cut down on a lot of movement around the country. Just an idea. It’s a bad situation.

    Do you have to go anywhere near areas where there are likely to be problems?
