All the world over it is
true that a double-minded

Israel Safer Than Detroit?

Israel's low incidence of
violent crime was the sub-
ject of a recent article by
Douglas Watson in the Bal-
timore Sun. The story,
which cited statistics com-
paring the crime rate in Is-
rael with the crime rate in
Detroit, was reprinted by
the Detroit Free Press.
Israel, with a population
nearly four times the size of
Detroit, according to thear-
ticle, reported only 80
homicides during 1980
while Detroit recorded 547.
There were 1,313 rapes in
Detroit during 1980 and 190
in Israel; Detroit reported
13,429 robberies for the
year compared with 209 in
Israel.
The article attributed Is-
rael's low crime rate to sev-
eral factors. "The strength
of the Jewish family, united
by close personal ties and
religious traditions," was
one reason given.
The nation's youthful
idealism was also cited as
a factor. During the coun-
try's first 10 to 15 years
crime declined dramati-

cally, even as the popula-
tion grew steadily. In
1950, two years after the
country was founded,
police recorded 50 mur-
ders and 201 robberies.
Ten years later, in 1960,
the figures had dropped
to 26 murders and 46
robberies.
Other factors responsible
for keeping crime down in-
clude a stringent gun con-
trol law. Handguns are not
available to the average
citizen in Israel. Most stolen
weapons for sale, police say,
are rifles pilfered from the
army.
Despite the relatively low
crime rate, police report
that crime is rising steadily.
The 80 murders reported in
1980 were nearly double the
number in 1975. Robberies
and other violent crimes
have more than doubled in
the last five years.
Police report an increase
in the number of juvenile of-
fenses. Six years ago, less
than line-third of burglaries
and thefts were attributed
to juveniles, but two years
ago, they were responsible
for more than half of such
property crimes, according
to the article.
