Likud Supporters
Seek Satisfaction
from Government

NEW YORK — The main
political challenge Israel's
new government will face
will be to "satisfy" Israelis
of Asian/African back-
ground, whose votes in the
June 1981 elections pro-
vided most of the support for
Prime Minister Menahem
Begin's Likud party.
This assertion was made
by Dr. Hanokh Smith, elec-
tion analyst for the Israel
Broadcasting Authority
and director of the Smith
Research Center in Israel,
in a post-election report for
the American Jewish
Tommittee.
Another result of the elec-
tion, according to Dr. Smith,
is that the religious parties
have gained in political
power even though they
won a smaller proportion of
the vote than they had in
previous elections. Dr.
Smith notes that no gov-
ernment - could possibly put
together" a coalition with-
out the religious parties,
since the two major parties,
Likud and the Labor
Alignment, received nearly
identical shares of the vote.
