ter for Strategic Studies.
Presenting the major find-
ings of the study at a recent
press conference, Maj. Gen.
Aharon Yariv, director of the
Jaffee Center, noted the con-
tinued growth of Arab ar-
mies, further diversification
of their sources of supply and
the improved quality of Arab
weapons. There is almost no
weapons system possessed by
the Israel Defense Forces
that the Arabs do not have as
well, he said. Further, the
buildup of the Arab armies
has come at a time when
economic circumstances have
dictated major cutbacks in Is-
rael's defense budget.
But the only real threat to
Israel at present comes from
Syria, Gen. Yariv said. Since
1982, the Syrian army has
increased by 50 percent and
now consists of half a million
regular troops and 250,000
reserves. Syrian capacity for
a surprise attack has been
strengthened by the acquisi-
tion of sophisticated missile
systems and the possibility of
concentrating troops between
Damascus and the Golan
Heights.
Since Israel has a rela-
tively small standing army
and is dependent on its re-
serve forces, which take time
to mobilize, it must remain in
a state of high alert against
the possibility of a surprise
attack by Syria, Gen. Yariv
warned. However, he said he
did not view such an attack
as imminent, and added that
Syria has not yet reached its
goal of "strategic parity" with
Israel.

Arab Schools
Need To Be
Upgraded

Jerusalem (JTA) — A team
of Arab educators warned
last Sunday, a day before the
beginning of the new school
year, that the situation in the
Arab educational system has
reached a new low.
At a
Aviv press con-
ference, the educators said an
Arab child is two years be-
hind a Jewish child of the
same age in reading compre-
hension. The speakers said
this was the result of a persis-
tent gap in infrastructure,
school classes, teachers and
books.
Thousands of teachers would
be needed to upgrade the level
of education of Arab children
to that of Jewish pupils, said
M aj ed el-H aj j, a sociology
professor at Haifa University
and the head of an educa-
tional committee set up by
the National Committee of
Arab Municipalities.
Only 60 percent of Arab.
pupils complete elementary
/- school, and only 50 percent
graduate high school.
