Supporters of Terrorism Arrested in Nazareth

Two Israeli Arabs, Sheikh Nazim Abu Salim, and Mohammed Naarani, have been arrested for allegedly lending support to terrorist groups, illegal unionizing, and conspiring to commit crimes.

Since these activities are all illegal it is just that the two were arrested. However, the arrests showcase the importance of working to integrate Israeli-Arabs more deeply into the fabric of Israeli life. The message of isolation which radical sheikhs preach is one which discriminatory Israeli policies bolster rather than falsify. Arresting supporters of terrorism is an important step in ensuring Israeli security, but it must be supplemented with policies which integrate communities in which those who support terrorism live.
