Some Small Articles
Can Make Big News

CARL ALPERT

Special to The Jewish News

I

t's the little items at the
bottom of the page, or
buried away where few
people read them, that often
make the real news from
Israel. In recent months, for
example:
They Don't Thy Around —
Tilton Toys, an Israeli com-
pany, signed a contract to sell
toys to one of the largest toy
companies in the world, in
Hong Kong. Toy exports from
Israel totalled about $15
million last year, up from $12
million in 1986.
They Grow Up to Throw
Stones — Infant mortality
among Arabs on the West
Bank dropped from 84 to 27
per thousand over the past 20
years, according to Prof.
Trude Cohen of the Beilinson
Hospital's Center for Genetic
Diseases.
Kosher
A
Strictly
Christmas — The Elite
Chocolate factory products
are certified as strictly kosher
by the Orthodox rabbinical
court, Badatz. Last December
their production included 440
tons of Chanukah chocolate
coins and 230 tons of
chocolate Santa Claus
figures.
Business is Business — The
market in central Israel is be-
ing flooded with attractive,
colorful kippot, knitted skull
caps, which are the hallmark
of the younger religious
generation. Demand is said to
exceed the supply, even
though the knitters, the
women of the Arab village of
Dir Nizam, are working
around the clock.
Kibbutz Headache — In
1987 about 2,000 adult
members of the United Kib-
butz Movement, more than
half of them under 30, quit
their kibbutzim. That
number exceeded the number
of new members who joined
the kibbutzim by 509.
Unexpected By-Product —
As a result of the frequent
curfews imposed on Arab
villages in the occupied areas,
the birth rate there has been
rising. As on observer ex-
plained it: If a husband and
wife are locked up indoors for
24, 48 or 96 hours, they're not
going to spend all their time
reading books. Proposed solu-
tion: impose a curfew on
Jewish towns and villages as
well.
What Do They Talk About?
— Israel is twelfth on a list of
countries which receive
telephone calls from the U.S.

Heading the list are Canada,
Mexico, Great Britain, Ger-
many, Spain, Japan and
France. However, Israel leads
in calls per capita.
Is This Normalization? —
Israeli tourist traffic to Egypt
continues to run in the
thousands, whereas Egyptian
tourists are few and far bet-
ween. On the other hand,
Egyptian exports to Israel are
far more than their imports.
Egypt sells Israel oil, copper
crafts, office furniture, pic-
tures, hand-woven wall
carpets and other small
items. Israel sends Egypt fer-
tilized poultry eggs, baby
chicks, irrigation equipment
and feed for live stock.
Who Says There is No
Aliyah From New York? —
Statistics from the Israel Con-
sulate in New York reveal
that in 1985 there were 76
live olim from that area, and
an additional 387 bodies of
deceased New York Jews sent
to Israel for burial. In 1986
the New York olim (the live
ones), numbered 63. Bodies
for burial were 378. Comment
unnecessary.

Israel's Medical Problem —
No, it's not the doctors who
are to blame — look at the pa-
tients. Under Israel's system
of semi-socialized medicine,
the average Israeli sees his
doctor 8.4 times a year. That's
50 percent more often that
the average Swiss, 75 percent
more than the average
American, 133 percent more
than Canadians, and 320 per-
cent more than the average
Swede.
Black Humor — A new ver-
sion of predictions for Israel's
future is making the rounds.
What's the difference bet-
ween an optimist and a
pessimist? An optimist in
Israel studies Arabic. A
pessimist studies Persian.
And Then They Grow Up —
A survey of pupils in the
fourth grade in Israel schools
revealed that 87 percent of
the youngsters like
arithmetic.
Arab Mothers Complain —
A member of the Knesset
reported that when he visited
some Arab villages not long
ago, the mothers complained
that the Jews had undermin-
ed their ability to discipline
their children. He was
perplexed, and they explain-
ed: "When our child would
refuse to eat, or to go to bed
on time, we used to warn
them that the Jews would
come and kidnap them. Now
when we say that to them,
they just laugh in our face!"
