When socialism is never at fault, you just need more socialism
No matter if it’s in the US, Europe in Israel or elsewhere, the Left’s mantra to horrid crime statistics is to blame it on social issues, like unemployment, education, sports and welfare in general. never mind the fact that billions have already been dumped into social entitlement programs, it’s never enough, utopia is just around the corner, cough up the funds and prepare to grab the brass ring.

Israeli Arab MK Jamal Zahalka: We need more
67 percent of murder cases in 2011 involved Israeli Arabs
In 2011, Israeli Arabs were in involved in 67 percent of Israel’s murder cases, even though the Arab sector comprises only 20% of Israel’s population.
Public Security Minister Yitzhak Aharonovitch (Yisrael Beitenu) was to present this statistic to the Cabinet on Sunday as part of a long-term strategy – a joint effort by the police and Public Security Ministry – aimed mainly at improving individual and communal safety in the non-Jewish sector.
The plan, which was presented to the prime minister a few days ago, was to be shown to the rest of the Cabinet on Sunday. Aharonovitch was also to present the recent efforts made on the civilian front as well as by law enforcement agencies to minimize the phenomenon.
Within the framework of the plan, special units were created and stationed in the predominantly Arab towns of Taybeh and Nazareth, while an effort was made to reinforce and strengthen local and municipal police forces.
Israeli Arab MK Jamal Zahalka (Balad) told Israel Hayom, “I lament the fact that the Cabinet has chosen to focus on the police issue, though it is one of the most pressing issues [facing the Israeli-Arab sector]. The issue of crime cannot be resolved without a comprehensive program involving education, employment, sport, welfare etc.”
“The police issue is the most pressing because the Israel Police are neglecting the problem of crime in the Arab sector. There is discrimination: a murder in [the Arab village of] Umm al-Fahm is not treated the same as a murder in Tel Aviv. The situation is dire and constantly deteriorating. Specific and rapid action is required. Just as the police were able to eradicate the crime in [the Jewish city of] Netanya, they can also eradicate it in Israeli-Arab communities,” he added.
“A political decision must be made, and for that reason this issue is on [Prime Minister Benjamin] Netanyahu’s agenda, for him to make a decision. I hope that he will decide that the current situation is unbearable,” he continued.
