CANCER,

wo polls in the current
issue of Israeli Democ-
racy magazine are es-
pecially revealing of the
mood in Israel. One gauges
Israelis' level of trust in
their institutions; the other
compares policy positions of
Arab and Jewish residents of
Israel.
The same institutions that
received a high level of trust
before the outbreak of the
intifada are still considered
highly trustworthy. Chief
among these are the Israeli
armed forces, which received
an 88 percent "trust" rating
in 1987 and a 92 percent
rating this year.
According to Ephraim
Yuchtman-Ya'ar, dean of
the social sciences faculty at
Tel Aviv University, Israelis
apparently see the intifada
as a force "wrought upon
Israel from outside."
Ya'ar attributed the sharp
rise in Israelis' trust in their
police (from 55 percent to 71
percent) to these officers' in-
creased involvement in na-
tional security matters since
the intifada began.
The Tel Aviv professor also
said that the increased trust
in Israel's rabbinate (from

42 percent to 53 percent)
stems from "a general
strengthening of the
religious element in Israeli
society. This does not
necessarily mean that there
are more religious people to-
day than in the past, but
rather that the religious and
`traditional' public is ap-
parently more influenced by
religious leaders and sym-
bols."
Another Israeli Democracy
poll indicated there is a wide
breach between Israel's
Arabs and Jews on major po-
litical points. Among these:
• Twenty percent of Jews
and 97 percent of Arabs sup-
port the establishment of a
Palestinian state adjacent to
Israel.
• Fifty-three percent of
Jews and 83 percent of
Arabs believe in the possibil-
ity of Jewish-Arab coex-
istence within Israel's pre-
1967 borders.
• Thirty-five percent of
Jews and 69 percent of
Arabs contend that anti-
Arab discrimination occurs
"frequently" or "very fre-
quently" in Israel.
Israeli Democracy is
published by the Israel-
Diaspora Institute and
distributed as a supplement
to the international edition
of the Jerusalem Post.

Are Americans Less
Kind To Refugees?

With 15 million refugees
roaming the world today,
U.S. News & World Report
asks in its cover story,
"Should America take them
in?"
The general tone of the ar-
ticle is that the United
States should be more recep-
tive to refugees than the
Bush Administration
desires. As Sen. Edward
Kennedy (D-MA) said of the

Administration's efforts to
turn away the expected flood
of newly emigrating Soviet
Jews, "The United States
cannot close the very door it
has tried to open for
decades."
After next year's immigra-
tion quota is filled, reported
the newsmagazine, experts
predict that another 300,000
Soviet Jews will still be
waiting to come to America.
