Prime Minister Ariel Sharon said on Monday that social violence should be treated just like terror, Israel Radio reported. “Last weekend, we witnessed the awful murder of an innocent person. The murder of IDF Golani Brigade soldier Nidal Mansour, like other cases, was in vain and was without any reason or justification,” said the prime minister. “This violence is a kind of terrorism; we must deal with it like we deal with terrorism. This phenomenon cannot be countenanced and we will put a stop to it. We will make decisions that will ease the police’s and judiciary’s struggle against violence in Israeli society and we will give them better tools to fight this phenomenon in all its aspects from personal security and youth violence to violence on the roads.”
