Odeh: Murders in Arab sector caused by state indifference

Indifference by the government and the police are to blame for the high murder rate in Israel's Arab commnuity, Joint List leader MK Ayman Odeh says.


"The dozens of people murdered since the start of the year are not just the victims of violent crime, but also victims of indifference by the government and law enforcement authorities," Odeh says, explaining why his party is boycotting the opening of the Knesset on Thursday.


"We cannot continue to bury our children while the rest of the Knesset members are filmed celebrating in the plenary," he says. "We will join our public in protests across the country."
