NECHEMIA MEYERS

Special to The Jewish News

T

he Israel Government
Employment Service
apparently thinks that
Chinese restaurants don't re-
quire Chinese cooks and
waiters, for it is demanding
the explusion of the Orientals
who presently staff local
Chinese restaurants.
They will be replaced, if the
Employment Service has its
way, by some of the 120,000
Israelis now out of work.
"That shouldn't cause
special problems," says Uri
Aharoni, the official responsi-
ble for issuing work permits
to foreign workers. "After all,
if we can train top-flight
scientists to man our
sophisticated science-based
industries, there is no reason
that we can't train top-flight
cooks to work in our popular
Chinese restaurants."
This view is contested by
Israel Aharoni, who spent
many years in the Far East
an now operates several
Chinese restaurants. "Israeli
cooks and waiters will never
be able to replace the Chinese
and Thais in my
establishments. They are pro-
ducts of a culture that they
imbibed with their mother's
milk; it can't be acquired by
others at a six-month Labor
Ministry crash course. It
should be clear to all concern-
ed: if those Orientals are real-
ly expelled, Israel's Chinese
restaurants will simply disap-
pear."
While Chinese food has
been popular with Diaspora
Jews for generations, Ghinese
restaurants were virtually
non-existent in this country
until the early 1970s. Now,
however, they are the most
popular "foreign" eating
establishments in the Holy
Land. There are almost 200 of
them, in comparison to some
30 French restaurants and 50
Italian restaurants.
And quite apart from their
popularity among Israelis,
Chinese restaurants also ap-
peal to tourists. For this
reason, the Tourism Ministry
adamantly opposes the pro-
posal to oust the Oriental
cooks and waiters.
Making the ouster scheme
even more ridiculous is the
fact that the Employment
Service will be hard put to
find Israelis willing to replace
the Chinese and Thais. Most
Israelis, even if they are
jobless, don't want a low-
paying, low-prestige job (for
example, in a restaurant);

they would rather collect
unemployment benefits.
This explains why —
despite growing joblessness at
home — Israel continues to
employ tens of thousands of
Arab workers from the "Ter-
ritories." And while disrup-
tions caused by the Intifada
have made employers leery
about depending on Arabs,
most have looked for more
dependable workers not in
Israel, but overseas.
The largest group of
overseas workers in Israel at
present are the Portuguese,
some 2,500 of whom are now
employed here. There are also
Turks, Romanians, Poles,
Ghanaians, Ethiopians, Fili-
pinos . and a host of other
nationalities.
Moreover, quite apart from
the people brought in to do
specific jobs, there are
numerous young backpackers
who take up temporary work
in order to pay for their stay
in this country or to save up
money for the next stage of
their wanderings. Known in
the building and restaurant
trade as "White Arabs," they
provide much of the casual
labor in Eilat and, to a lesser
extent, in Tel Aviv.
Whatever success the
Employment Service may
have in replacing those
Arabs, Portuguese and
backpackers with jobless
Israelis, local lovers of good
food hope it will keep its
hands off the Chinese
restaurants.

Sharon Debates
With Weizman

Tel Aviv (JTA) — In an
Israel Radio interview last
weekend, Industry and Trade
Minister Ariel Sharon, a
Likud hard-liner, and Science
and Development Minister
Ezer Weizman, a Laborite
dove, seemed to represent
diametrically opposed views
on government policy toward
the Palestine Liberation
Organization.
Weizman maintained Israel
has no choice but to talk to
PLO chief Yassir Arafat.
Sharon insisted there can
be no peace in the Middle
East as long as Arafat is alive.
But he blamed his own par-
ty leader, Prime Minister Yit-
zhak Shamir, for failure to
end the Palestinian uprising
and hinted that Shamir and
Defense Minister Yitzhak
Rabin should resign.
"For 14 months, this securi-
ty failure, perhaps the worst
in our history, has been going
on.."
