Internal Security Minister Avi Dichter said Monday that Sunday's stabbing of a police officer by car thieves reflects the violent Israeli atmosphere. "Israel doesn't invest enough resources in crime fighting," Dichter said in an interview with Army Radio. "We [ministers] have met several times over the past few months and unfortunately have been unable to come to a conclusion regarding financial issues," he said, referring to a lack in appropriate funding towards law enforcement. "Israeli society is becoming more and more violent," the minister added.
