Arab member of Knesset, Mohammad Barakeh, Hadash-Ta`al party, charged that Israel is downplaying threats by extremist settlers groups against the Arab residents of Israel.

Barakeh said that the government and its security devices are not acting against these groups amidst their rising threats and plans against the Arab residents of Israel and the holy places.

Also, Barakeh said that the Israeli police is conducting ‘artificial’ arrests and not investigating the real dangers these groups pose in the area.


Barakeh said that the Israel government should act against the groups and that the Arab residents and Israeli progressive groups will stand firm against these groups and their continuous threats.
