Here's the complaint:
...Israeli Arab lawmakers voiced harsh criticism on Tuesday over the arrest of Tawfik Jamal, the Arab man who drove into a predominantly Jewish neighborhood of Acre on Yom Kippur sparking the 5 days of violence between Jews and Arabs in the city.
Jamal was arrested on Monday on suspicions of "harming religious sensitivities, speeding and reckless endangerment" in connection to the violence.
MK Ahmed Tibi (Ra'am-Ta'al) told Israel Radio on Tuesday that the arrest was an unreasonable police decision that will not contribute to calming the violence. He added that the arrest lacked legal justification and that it represented a capitulation to Jewish hooligans.
Hadash Chairman MK Mohammed Barakeh also condemned the arrest, saying it aimed to appease right wing extremists.
but, don't they remember the driver's own words, as I noted?:
The Arab man who drove into a Jewish neighborhood in Acre on the eve of Yom Kippur, sparking a series of riots and violent clashes, told the Knesset Committee of the Interior on Sunday that he would "sacrifice his neck" to bring coexistence back to the bi-national nothern city.
"If what I did caused this, I am ready to sacrifice my neck right here on this table, on lowered gallows, just to return peace and quiet back to the city of Acre, to bring co-existence back to its place.
If he's ready to "sacrifice" himself, what's a few days in jail?
Go figure out the Arabs.
