Education Minister Shai Piron announced on Thursday that his ministry would allocate NIS 1 million to increase dialogue and coexistence sessions between Jewish and Arab students.

The minister made the announcement during his Thursday visit to the Arab Israeli town of Fureidis, south of Haifa, in the wake of the recent “price tag” attacks.

During his visit, the minister met with mayor Yunis Marii and with Jewish and Arab high-school students.

“We came here today to say that we will not allow the existence of a distorted reality in Israel, of a violation of sacred sites,” said Piron.

The minister condemned the attacks, which he deemed as “improper and criminal acts,” and said the only way to counter them was through meetings of “coexistence and friendship.”

He added that there are leaders who “need to do some soul searching” because they have yet to condemn the attacks. Piron called on all leaders to denounce the price tag attacks in the “harshest and most obvious way.”
