Arab Israelis are “prominently involved” in violent crimes and in drug trafficking, said Israel Police Commissioner Roni Alsheikh.
According to the data, although Arab Israelis make up 21% of the population, their involvement in serious crimes is double or more that figure: Police statistics for 2017 show that Arab Israelis are involved in 57% of murder cases, 55% of attempted murder cases and 59% of arson cases.
The statistics also show Arab Israelis are involved in 45% of all theft cases, in 36% of all property crimes, and are implicated in 26% of drug trafficking cases.
In 2016, the statistics showed that Arab Israelis were involved in 63% of murder cases, 57% of arson cases, 48% of theft cases, 36% of property crimes and 22% of drug-related crimes...
A recent campaign to collect illegal weapons in the Arab sector was essentially a “failure,” as very few weapons were turned in, even though owners were guaranteed immunity from prosecution...
Additionally, the data showed that in 2016, the number of overall criminal cases dropped to 329,823, as opposed to 446,689 in 2007. This drop did not necessarily reflect an improvement, but may reflect the fact that the public has lost faith in the police and therefore files fewer complaints.
Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked said in an interview: "It's a very unique time for us in the Ministry of Justice and in Israel. During the recent months we're actually changing the old rules, the old paradigm regarding the law in Judea and Samaria...”
"A Palestinian state is no longer the only solution for peace in the Middle East. We think that a valid peace can be born from a position of strength, from building and strengthening the settlements in Judea and Samaria, and from encouraging economic peace and economic development of the Palestinian Authority.” (She is still using the old PC 'song')
"So I think we are at a very historical point where we have a very friendly administration in the United States, a right-wing (just a bit more Zionist than others) government here in Israel..."

SHAMFUL JEWISH SELF-HATE: There are 1.3 billion Muslims in the world - not a single anti-Wahabism (Islamic world domination movement) Muslim organisation anywhere. There are just 14 million Jews, but there are a multitude of Jewish anti-Zionist organisations all over the world, supporting enemies of Israel and even Jews! I always say, “Nobody respects those who have no self-respect!”
Half of the fake, multigenerational "Palestinian refugees" have emigrated abroad from Lebanon. Hamas official fears the phenomenon will affect the "right of return". Some 260,000 “Palestinian refugees” had left the refugee camps in Lebanon to various countries. "The Zionist enemy is working in this way to empty the refugee camps and to destroy the foundation for the right of return," Hamas’s representative in Lebanon Ali Baraka said. (Of course it is fault of Israel that Arab state have not aloud their "beloved brothers" to work and have equal rights for 4 generations - Unlike Jews who found shelter in Israel, escaping Muslim countries!)
Since 2014, the High Court has only allowed 36% of the home demolition orders against terrorists. 64% were either cancelled, limiting to closing off a room, or restricted to an individual wall or two. In 34% of the cases, the High Court only allowed individual walls to be demolished, 18% were limited to sealing off a room, and 12% were cancelled outright. In 2016, thirty demolition orders were ordered against terrorist homes, and the court only permitted eight of those homes to be fully demolished. In 2017, only one terrorist’s home was demolished. (The problem with Israel's left-leaning courts is that they would sooner punish Jews than enemies.)
Palestinian factions, including rival groups Hamas and Fatah, have agreed to hold a general election by the end of 2018, Precise date to be decided on by PA President Abbas; situation in Gaza remains precarious with civilian control in Fatah's hands but security mechanisms still dominated by Hamas.
President Reuven Rivlin denied the request for a pardon filed by Elor Azaria, who is serving a 14-month sentence for killing an Arab terrorist.
Mahmoud Abbas ordered representatives in the Palestine Liberation Organization on Tuesday to freeze all contacts with the United States. But in the long tradition of 'Palestinian' double-speak, Abbas said that he was “committed to a historic peace deal (with Israel – couldn’t say the name) under the auspices of President (Donald) Trump.” At the same time State Department spokeswoman says US wants PLO to keep its Washington mission open despite recent threats to shut it down. (What a farce! An anti-Israel scam played by both sides! And it did not take long for the US to backtrack on the decision to close the PA office in DC)
As Israel marks 40 years since Sadat's visit, in Cairo, which initiated the move that led to a peace agreement with Jerusalem, there is no desire to celebrate the dramatic decision made by their president in 1977.
Quote of the Week:
“I will insist the Hebrews have (contributed) more to civilize men than any other nation. If I was an atheist and believed in blind eternal fate, I should still believe that fate had ordained the Jews to be the most essential instrument for civilizing the nations... They are the most glorious nation that ever inhabited this Earth. The Romans and their empire were but a bubble in comparison to the Jews. They have given religion to three-quarters of the globe and have influenced the affairs of mankind more and more happily than any other nation, ancient or modern.” - John Adams, the second President of the United States.
Islamophobia Myth - Most Hate is Against Jews
In the aftermath of the 2016 election, many liberals claimed that hate crimes against Muslims were on the rise in the United States, and tried to link that directly to the election of President Donald Trump.
However, The FBI recently released a report detailing all the reported hate crimes of 2016, and the numbers are a real eye-opener. It turns out that Muslims weren’t the most targeted group.
Jews were the group that was targeted the most in the category of “hate crimes motivated by religious bias.” In that category, 54 percent of crimes reported were “anti-Jewish.” You can see the full breakdown here.
Only 25 percent were “anti-Muslim.”
That’s a huge gap in the number of hate crimes, one that blows a huge hole in the liberal narrative that hate crimes against Muslims have been rising, thanks to Trump.
In terms of solid numbers, 834 hate crimes were reported against Jews, 318 against Muslims and 63 against Catholics.
Of course, there are likely many more hate crimes that have gone unreported, or crimes based on religious animosity that did not qualify legally for the category, but the breakdown in terms of statistics is likely very similar to the ones that were reported.
The Daily Wire reported that there was a 9 percent increase in the number of hate crimes against Jews from 2015.
These are some deeply disturbing statistics, but you will barely hear the mainstream media talking about them very much.
After all, these numbers don’t fit the narrative liberals are trying to push, so they will simply be swept under the rug and ignored.
If the numbers were reversed and anti-Muslim hate crimes were at the top, you wouldn’t hear the end of it. This report would be splashed across the front page of every newspaper in the United States.
All hate crimes, regardless of which religion/group they are targeting, are unacceptable - that’s why they’re called “crimes.”
Acting as if hate crimes against one group are more important than those against another group is simply disgusting and un-American.
Anyone who commits a hate crime should be brought to justice.
We may have our disagreements in this country, but the very basis of our democracy is that people can live their lives as they please without fear.
