Member of Knesset Dr. Michael Ben-Ari (National Union Party) called upon Newssheet ministers to examine themselves regarding the riot at the Rami Levy grocery store in Samaria on Wednesday. Several dozen non-Arabs described as "anarchists" led a group of Arabs to rush into the parking lot yelling and waving PLO flags. They were stopped and arrested by police within ten minutes.
MK Ben-Ari said the incident was partially the result of the ineffectiveness of the Ministry of Internal Security. He called upon the ministry to take concrete steps in curbing the actions of homegrown anti-Israeli agitators that institute unrest within Arab communities.
