MK Dov Khenin (Hadash) on Sunday called on the Minister of Education to declare the coming year as the year of the fight against racism.
Referring to an attack on an Arab in the city of Yafo, Khenin said, “The ongoing crimes related to hate and racism need to be dealt with. I call on the police to give priority to investigating hate crimes and to bring perpetrators to justice. I call on the Minister of Education to declare the coming year as the year of the fight against racism in the education system and make the struggle against racism the main topic of the year. We, the members of the Knesset, also have a great responsibility to promote comprehensive legislation against racism. In this spirit I have submitted a bill dealing with the fight against racism in all its forms.”
