Tel Aviv (JTA) — Under-
educated, disaffected strongly
religious youths of Oriental
background are typical of the
supporters of Rabbi Meir Kw
hane's extremist Kach Party,
according to a survey completed
by the Hanoch and Rafi Smith
ResearCh Center, and published
in the Jerusalem Post last week.
The survey also found Kahane's
support to be receding.
Ninety percent of the Israelis
who back the Brooklyn-born
rabbi, who has called for the
ouster of all Arabs from Israel
and the administered territories,
are religiously oriented males
whose families came to Israel
from Islamic countries, who live
in poor neighborhoods or de-
velopment towns and find it
hard to get or hold a job, the
Smiths, a father-and-son re-
search team, found.
Nearly all in the sampling of
voters were under 39 years of
age. Most of them, therefore,
were educated in Israel. But
nearly 60 percent had less than
12 years' schooling, a much
higher percentage than found
among the supporters of any
other party represented in the
Knesset. A-very., high percen-
tage were school drop-outs or
graduates of low level voca-
tional training courses.
Nearly half of the respondents
identified themselves as ultra-
Orthodox, religious or tradi-
tional. There were virtually no
secular Jews among Kahane
supporters polled. According to
the Smiths, their profile is clos'er
to that of the religious parties
than to the secular rightwing
parties, Likud and Tehiya.
A large majority of the Kach
supporters resemble the voters
for the religious parties insofar
as they support religious values
as the basis for Israeli law, the
researchers found. They see ex-
pansion of religious influence as
good and oppose secular Jewish
positions in general.

Rabbi Meir Kahane

But the tide of Kahane sup-
port has receded considerably,
according to the survey. From a
high of nine percent in August,
1985, it has fallen to three per-
cent of the electorate, last
month, though this is more than
'twice the percenage that voted
Kahane into the Knesset in
1984. Among Jews of Western
origin, his support does not even
approach the one percent neces-
sary for a single Knesset seat.

Artukovic
Goes On Trial

Paris (JTA) — Andrij a Ar-
tukovic, the alleged Nazi war
criminal extradited to Yugo-
slavia from the U.S. in Feb-
ruary, will go on trial in Zagreb,
it was announced last week in
Belgrade. Artukovic, 86, is ac-
cused of murdering thousands
of Serbs, Jews, gypsies and
others when he was Interior
Minister of the Nazi puppet
state of Croatia during World
War II.
