"We intend on forming a monitoring committee to counter any infringements of the law in the Arab sector. The committee will be headed by Knesset Member Michael Ben Ari (National Union) and other right-wing activists will serve as members as well," a rightist source told Ynet Tuesday.

Radical right-wing activist Itamar Ben Gvir explained: "The committee will be made up of subsections, with each section in charge of different things, like building violations, affiliation with terror groups, and infringing on Jewish freedom of movement." The Right, he added, is now contemplating holding processions in other Arab towns as well.
Baruch Marzel, of the extreme Right, added that the march was "a great success, proving that if the police are willing, they can uphold both public order and the law."
Other rightist sources said that the unrest noted during the march will not be ignored, adding they will demand the "police exhaust all measures with those outlaws." Ben Ari is expected to demand the police update him on the status of those detained during the march.
