Group Calls for Condemnation of Arab Harassment


The Lehava anti-assimilation group responded Wednesday to reports that three Arab men from Palestinian Authority territory were arrested for sexually assaulting Jewish girls on a Tel Aviv beach. “We expect President Peres and [Prime Minister] Bibi to condemn this vigorously in every media outlet, and to order the Shin Bet to fight the phenomenon,” the group said.

The request referenced Netanyahu’s and Peres’ responses when a group of drunk Jewish teens beat an Arab teen in Jerusalem last week following a verbal altercation.
