Prime Minister Naftali Bennett vowed to end the government’s neglect of the Negev during a ’40 signatures’ debate in the Knesset plenum Monday evening.
“For many years there has been total and systemic neglect of Arab crime in general and crime in the Negev in particular. This neglect has led to a state of utter lawlessness, loss of personal security of the state’s citizens and a real sense of lack of governance,” Bennett began.
Bennett must make things right now and match his words with action. A full implementation of governance over the Negev must happen without delay. There should be no more debate on this.
