Visiting Taibe, President Herzog says silence ‘unacceptable’ on Arab crime wave

President Isaac Herzog and his wife Michal visit the Arab city of Taibe, meeting its mayor and urging action against the wave of violent crime plaguing Israel’s Arab community.

Herzog tours a local high school and says: “It is unacceptable for us as a society to remain silent in the face of violence, escalation, and loss of personal safety suffered on a daily basis by some citizens.

“We must not get used to this. We must not remain silent.”
