Jerusalem afraid to enforce building codes against Arabs

The City of Jerusalem is afraid to enforce its own building codes against Arabs.
In a letter obtained by Arutz Sheva on Sunday, the man responsible for building inspections for the Jerusalem municipality said that the city is afraid to enforce laws against illegal Arab building because of the threat of disorders.

Responding to contact on the matter, Ofir Mai wrote, "Because of security limitations, I am not able to carry out effective enforcement in the neighborhood of Silwan (Shiloach in Hebrew), so many building violations in the neighborhood are not dealt with." He noted, "Every [inspection] tour in the neighborhood draws protests, rock throwing and disturbances." He added that regional inspectors would carry out the work.
What could go wrong?
