A report by the Central Statistics Bureau, which examined life expectancy in Israel between 2005 and 2009, shows that there is an 8.5 year gap in life expectancy between those living in Ra’anana, which has the country’s highest life expectancy, and residents of Rahat, with the lowest. The four towns with the lowest life expectancy are either Arabic or with a mixed population – Rahat, Nazareth, Lod and Ramle. (Haaretz)

Fathers in Ra’anana (a city in the Sharon area) who came to watch their 9-year-old daughters’ dance show were asked to leave the hall to protect the modesty of women.
Dr. Shlomo Lisha, who will become a Ra’anana city councilman on the coming Thursday, said in an interview “there are things which anger me, and one of them is the increasing number of Arabs in Ra’anana.” According to Lisha, “I love the Arabs, but they should live in their own places”; he further said that “we don’t need to encourage them to stay here, in this country. We should make their lives uncomfortable, but instead of that we do the opposite”. (Hebrew)
