Since 2000, all Israeli governments have followed “a plan” to increase number of killed Israeli Arabs in internal crime

Official PA TV program Talk of the Hour, on the surge in Israeli Arab crime, hosting former Israeli Arab Parliament Member and Head of the High Follow-Up Committee for Arab Citizens of Israel Mohammad Barakeh. The committee is an extra-parliamentary umbrella organization that represents Arab citizens of Israel.


Official PA TV host: “You mentioned that the escalation in crime (i.e., among Israeli Arabs) stems from an [Israeli] governmental plan that has existed since the Al-Aqsa Intifada in October 2000, whose goal is dismantling the [Arab] public and distancing it from its central issue. To what extent is this plan a plan that passes from government to government, an Israeli political plan for more than 20 years?”


Head of the High Follow-Up Committee for Arab Citizens of Israel and former Israeli MP Mohammad Barakeh: “Clearly it passes from government to government. Since 2000 there have been five or seven governments in Israel. There is a graph [of those killed] that is constantly on the rise, without connection to the ruling government. Under this government there is an awful increase. Last year there was [also] an increase compared to the previous years.”
