The National Council of Mission-Driven Communities visited on Tuesday the Israeli-Arab city of Umm al-Fahm to show solidarity with the community members and express their goal to eradicate crime and violence in the Arab sector.
The National Council of Mission-Driven Communities is an initiative out of the Mandel Leadership Institute that focuses on strengthening and highlighting mission-driven communities all over Israel.
“In recent years we have witnessed a phenomenon of violence in the Arab sector that is increasingly effecting the daily lives of many innocent citizens. Children are afraid to leave their houses, there are shootings in homes and businesses every day, and innocent people are being murdered on an alarmingly frequent basis,” the organization said.
Members of the council paid a solidarity visit to the mayor of Umm al-Fahm to show empathy for the difficult situation in which his community, and many others, find themselves.
The visit was also intended to place pressure on the police and on the government to work to eradicate this phenomenon. It is not a unique issue to the Arab sector alone, it is a problem that can be seen across Israel, Jews and Arabs, left and right alike, are all affected by violent crime.
“Communities must think about how to strengthen the safety of the areas they live in by recruiting community members to help, whilst also strengthening the police forces,” the organization said.
After visiting Umm al-Fahm, the National Council of Mission-Driven Communities visited the families of those who died in the Meron tragedy.
