About 9,000 Arabs and
27,000 Jews live together
harmoniously in Acre. This
historic, picturesque little
port-city, just eight miles
from Haifa along the
Mediterranean coast, has
long been a tourist attrac-
tion in Israel.
One hardly notices that in

the main shouk, the Arab
style market, Jews and
Arabs work side by side —
one stand owned by Jews,
the other by Arabs. When.
closing time comes, each
helps the other clean up. It's
difficult to tell who works
for whom in Acre, as Jews
and _Arabs also werk for
each other.
Acre has a new and old ,
city. The old city is a mix-

ture of Moslem and Chris-
tian Arabs living in rustic
old stone and plaster homes,
much like the casbahs the
world over. The old city is
along the waterfront, as is
the restaurant Abu Christo.
Away from the
waterfront, past the old
city, is the newer section.
There, Jews have been
living since 1948, in de-
velopment housing
(shikunim) rising on stilts
from,the ground in pastel
colored walls.
The early shikunim were
put up so quickly and
cheaply that now, over 30
years later, they are some-
times semi-slums. Later
building is of a-much higher
standard. Along the main
commercial drag which
runs perpendicular to the

shore, the streets are clog-
ged- with people, both Arab
and Jew.

• We cannot help but notice
the signs for the Jewish de-
ntists and jewelers and
watchmakers. Almost every
store advertises both in He-
brew and Arabic.
