Harris Poll Finds
NEW YORK (ZINS) — Despite
the fact that only 13 per cent of
Israelis regard themselves as "reli-
gious," there is overwhelming sen-
timent in favor of continued reli-
gious influence, it was reported by
a Lou Harris Poll conducted in
Israel several weeks ago.
A total of 54 per cent opposed re-
placing religious marriages with
civil services, and 72 per cent voted
in favor of retaining the present
system of serving only kosher food
to the Israeli armed forces.
The survey indicates that Is-
raelis feel generally quite secure.
Fully 72 per cent believe that it
would be only "slightly difficult"
or "difficult but not impossible"
for Israel to defend herself with-
out financial aid from world
Jewry. A total of 67 per cent feel
the same way about holding their
own even without U.S. support.
The Israelis believe they are
negotiating from a position of
strength and can afford to hold
out for concessions they deem
necessary. What if this attitude
were to lead to a new war? Only
3 per cent foresee defeat, while
91 per cent are certain that Is-
rael can triumph over the Arabs
in a fourth round.
Surprisingly, 56 per cent of Is-
raeli Arabs agree. Nearly three
out of four (73 per cent) are
prepared to return some of the
liberated areas for the sake of a
final over-all peace settlement,
while 18 per cent prefer to retain
the present de facto borders.
Only 3 per cent want further
"expansion," and 4 per cent want
Israel to return all of the lands
taken during the Six Day War.
