JERUSALEM — Mention a prob

in the most progressive countries
in Western' 'Europe, iii the wirder-
nesses-of Africa or behind the Iron
Curtain — and it will be matched
in Israel. If there is a housing
shortage anywhere, it is greater
in Israel. If there is a threat from
saber-rattling enemies, it has its
equivalent here. If there is a popu-
lation problem — where else does

come, under dire conditions, more

What's, more — in this little land,

with the very people who are of-
fered asylum because they want
housing not in newly-developed
areas but in Bat Yam, Tel Aviv.
Bait veGan or wherever there is
the most progress and where hous-
ing is really at a premium.
Yet, activities are so extensive,
construction of homes, schools, in-
dustrial plants proceed at such a
rapid pace, that one wonders
whether the outside world realizes
that this is an embattled country
only on certain borders. War is
in the headlines, but the urge to
build and to assure a good life is
in the hearts of men, even if their
paths are strewn with obstacles.
Those who were at Bait veGan
a year ago won't recognize it.
Holon is no longer a sand dune.
Bat Yam is cherished as a resi-

their reactions toward Israel
and Israelis are 'under suspicion.
How can one expect the Moslem
to become an -Israeli patriot, when
his economic condition 'has been
elevated to the highest degree!
Of course, there are the black
panthers, and one hears as much
criticism of the government froth
old settlers. Often there is the
challenge: new settlers get good
apartments and . we. third genera-
tion citizens, with families that
number eight, nine and 10 chil-
dren, must live in the two-room
apartMents. Why - doesn't the
government assist us, too?
Pity the administration! It must
welcome newcomers, no matter
how large the numbers, regardless
Cf where they come from, and at
the same time face the attacks
of the sabras and the older settlers!
But in Israel, as in life itself,
time solves problems and even un-
der most difficult conditions there
is no haplessness here.
There are the Blacks. Some 200
Negroes who left the United States,
could not get along in the black
land of Liberia. They have taken
up residence in Israel—at Dimona
—and causing trouble. There is
such injustice in this experience!
For the first time Israel may be
compelled to expell some settlers.
They could have had homes,
jobs, friendship. They had it for
a time. But-_they must have been
instigated by troublemakers to
consider themselves the only gen-
uine "Israelites." All others are
interlopers. Some spoke about "this
Jew business." So--Israel needed
another problem—and got it full
measure. It won't be solved quick-
ly, but it surely will be solved.

A major problem is related to
