The Israel Religious Action Center (IRAC) issued a report dealing with incitement to racism by rabbis in Israel. According to the report, there is an escalation in racist statements by rabbis recently, but the enforcement policy of these crimes renders the relevant law ineffective.

The report refers to the excessive use of police riot control measures, detention of minors under the age of 12, conducting special enforcement operations, and giving more tickets in Arab neighborhoods as a means of exerting pressure on the population’s, and as a selective enforcement of law.
