Israel must not incriminate the entire Russian community following the uncovering of the neo-Nazi ring in Petah Tikva, Prime Minister Ehud Olmert said Sunday during Sunday's government meeting. He said, however, that the Israeli public could not remain unmoved in the face of such elements. "We must handle them…with the utmost severity," the prime minister said of the neo-Nazi ring. "What we are talking about is shocking, senseless violence. We must create a deterrence so as to ensure that such instances do not recur." "I am confident that no one in Israel has remained indifferent to the images, which can attest to a failure on our part in educating our youth and keeping them away from disturbed and dangerous ideologies," Olmert said. However, he added, "there is no need to search for solutions that pertain to entire communities."
