The Abraham Fund Initiatives sent a letter to Prime Minister Netanyahu on Wednesday calling for a new government program to deal with violence against Arabs.

The fund works to improve the integration and equality of Arab citizens of Israel.

The letter by the co-executive directors of the Fund in Israel, Amnon Beeri-Sulitzeanu and Mohammad Darawshe, titled “A plan of action for dealing with violence against Arabs,” mentions the recent incidents of racist based violence against Arabs and argues that the phenomenon is increasing as of late.

The letter states, “We turn to you [PM Netanyahu] in order to initiate an urgent plan to deal with violence and hate crimes against Arabs.” The plan will include a coordinated effort by the police, the judicial branch, and the education system. It will include clear steps for strict enforcement of laws against racist violence and deterrence, the letter stated.
