Joint List leader: Ending crime among Arabs only a question of will

Joint List leader Ayman Odeh tweeted on social media on Thursday before entering a meeting with Public Security Minster Gilad Erdan that the Arab community in Israel had “1,387 unnecessary funerals” and that “eradicating crime is only a question of will.” 
Odeh also said that the solution for the crime epidemic among Arab-Israelis had been laying “on the table for years.” 
Erdan recently said during a radio interview that “Arab society is violent due to its culture.” 
The meeting is held between Odeh and Erdan with the participation of acting Police Chief Moti Cohen, Majd al-Krum council leader Salim Slivi and head of Arab regional councils  Mudar Yunas.
