Youth Oppose Equality
For Israel's Arabs

Tel Aviv (JTA) — A survey
of Israeli youth has found a
high degree of anti-Arab
militancy and a pervasive
opposition to equal rights for
Israel's Arabs.
The results were discussed
at a study day on "Values,
Youth and Security" spon-
sored by the Israel Defense
Force and the Gadna youth
movement in cooperation
with Tel Aviv University's
School of Education.
Dr. Mina Tzemah of the
Dahaf Institute, who con-
ducted the survey, reported
that about 40 percent of Is-
raeli youth support Jewish
terrorist organizations, al-
though only ten percent were
prepared to join such a group.
About ten percent identified
themselves as extremists in
the mold of Rabbi Meir
Kahane and 30 percent said
they tended to support
Kahane's goal of an Israeli
state free of all Arabs.
Kahane himself no longer
enjoys much support among
youth.
the
Tzemah
said
education-for-democracy pro-
grams at Israeli schools have
resulted in a higher percent-
age of support among young
people for the concept of Is-
rael as a democratic state.
But the support, apparently,
is only in theory.
Tzemah reported that 60
percent of youths continue to
believe there is no justifica-
tion to grant equal rights to
Israel's Arab citizens and 45
percent favor legislation to
prohibit criticism of the gov-
ernment over its handling of
its relations with the Arab
world.
A negative attitude by Is-
raelis toward equal employ-
ment opportunities for Arabs
was found by Prof. Sami
Smooha of Haifa University,
who conducted a survey
among 1,200 Jews outside of
the administered territories.

He reported at a university
symposium that the majority
in Israel accepts the employ-
ment of Arabs as construction
workers or in menial jobs
such as cleaners and is sus-
picious of the employment of
Arab university graduates.
Smooha said that 45 percent
of Jews favor firing Arab
workers before Jewish work-
ers, 68 percent would not
work under an Arab superior
and 81 percent believed that
Jews must be given prefer-
ence over Arabs with respect
to job opportunities.
Smooha said this attitude
seems to stem from the fact
that Israel is a Jewish state
and therefore Jews must
enjoy privileges. He also re-
ported that 83 percent of his

respondents think only some
Israeli Arabs are loyal to the
state and the same percent-
age perceived Arabs to be a
danger to Israel's security.
A majority of Israelis look
with disfavor on the idea of
an Arab member of the
Jerusalem city council, ac-
cording to a poll taken by the
Telesker Institute between
June 8-10. The results, pub-
lished in Hadashot, showed
that 51.9 percent of the re-
spondents saw the an-
nouncement by East
Jerusalem Arab editor Hanna
Seniora that he should stand
for election in the next
municipal elections to be
"bad or negative for Israel."
A 23.3 percent minority
thought Seniora's initiative
was "good or positive from Is-
rael's viewpoint" and 24.8
percent had no opinion.

France Elects

Chief Rabbi

Paris (JTA) — Joseph Sit-
ruk, a 42-year-old Algerian-
born ultra-Orthodox rabbi,
was elected Chief Rabbi of
France this month, succeed-
ing Rene Sirat, who did not
seek a second term. Sitruk
will take office on Jan. 1,
1988.
Sitruk, who is Chief Rabbi
of Marseilles, which has the
largest Jewish community
outside Paris, was elected by
a 200-member General As-
sembly representing
synagogues, religious com-
munities and the Central
Consistory, which adminis-
ters Jewish religious founda-
tions in France.
He won a majority on the
first ballot over his only chal-
lenger, Rabbi Jacob Madar,
who is expected to be elected
Chief Rabbi of Paris when
the local consistory meets
next Sunday.
Although Sitruk advocates
strict interpretation of all
religious laws, he is reputed
to be an outstanding ad-
ministrator and community
leader. He is credited with
re-organizing the Marseilles
Jewish community during his
nine years as Chief Rabbi
there.
The fact that Sitruk, Sirat
and Madar are all of Alge-
rian birth was seen here as
an affirmation of the domin-
ant role North African Jews
now play in French Jewish
community affairs.
It is believed that Sirat de-
clined to stand for reelection
because of personal dif-
ferences with the head of the
Central Consistory, Jean-
Paul Elkan.
