This study explored the moderating effect of religiosity on the correlation between affiliation with delinquent peers and perpetration of serious physical violence among a representative sample of 2811 Arab Muslim adolescents (aged 13–18) in Israel, who completed a structured, anonymous, self-report questionnaire. The findings showed that religiosity may play a protective role in preventing adolescent delinquency and in decreasing the effects of delinquent peers.
