Street signs in Israeli-Arab neighborhoods named after PLO overlord removed

Some army veterans discovered there's a street named after Yaser Arafat in an Israeli-Arab town, and the government's ordered the signs removed:
There will no longer be a street named after Yasser Arafat in Israel, the Interior Ministry decided Sunday, setting off the ire of Arab MKs and activists.

A letter published by Interior Minister Arye Deri ordered the municipality of Jatt, ten kilometers east of Hadera, to remove signs designating a local street as Yasser Arafat Street within 48 hours. Local residents say the sign has been up for nine years, but Deri’s letter stipulates that it never was approved by the ministry.

The Deri letter came after a Facebook post in which Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu wrote: “In the state of Israel, a street will not be named after Arafat. And we will see to it that the sign is taken down.”
It sounds like the street sign was put up at the time the now convicted Ehud Olmert was in charge. It doesn't surprise me at all that he could've enabled something so horrific to be set up.
The right-wing organization Im Tirtzu became active in the fight against the street name after it was contacted by a group of disabled soldiers led by Liran Baruch, who lost vision in an eye in a battle in Kalandiya in 2002, for help in protesting it. Baruch had heard of Arafat Street from a friend who encountered it in a Waze navigation.

“This is a mass murderer who didn’t change his ways,”
he said of Arafat. “We expect the Palestinian Authority not to call squares after terrorists, and here we find, inside the country, in an Israeli city a street named after Arafat. How is it possible?” he asked.

Matan Peleg, CEO of Im Tirzu, said: “Arafat’s hands are stained with blood and there is no greater disgrace to the thousands of Israelis murdered under Arafat’s command than immortalizing his name in the streets of Israel.”
Anyone who upholds such monsters only condones their barbarism. And that's not the only street sign that's been set up in past years. There's also one bearing the name of this repulsive figure:
Some Israel-Arab municipality feature streets named after Haj Amil al-Huseini, the Jerusalem Grand Mufti who had a close friendship with Adolf Hitler.
If there's any around, they should be ordered removed as well. No streets should be named after a savage who aided other savages. Update: this subject has also been addressed.
