The Neighborhood Project invites you to a

with 130,000 jobs in Israel. If
we stop all this, which is ex-
actly what King Hussein
did, they will have to look for
work elsewhere. They will
emigrate."
Unlike Rabbi Kahane, Mr.
Ze'evi and his party draw
the line at forcible transfer,
except in the event of an at-
tack on Israel's eastern
border by a coalition of Arab
armies.
Security considerations
are not the only factors that
drive Rehavam Ze'evi. Dem-
ographic trends, he says,
show that Israel's Palestin-
ian and Arab minorities will
outnumber the Jewish
population within 15 years.
This too, provides a com-
pelling imperative for
transfer. If Israel is to re-
main a democracy — "and
we want to live only in a
democracy" — it must
remove the Palestinians, he
says.
Mr. Ze'evi regards transfer
as a matter of necessity, of
Israel's survival, rather
than a matter of choice or
convenience. "If you have a
better solution," he says,
"bring it to me and I'll adopt
it."
He says he is not bothered
by the depth of criticism his
ideas evoke among his oppo-
nents, including fellow
cabinet ministers (Health
Minister Ehud Olmert de-
scribed his appointment to
the cabinet as "a moral stain
on the government").
"What worries me is that
Israelis don't define their
problems. If you are sick,
you can't simply start taking
medicine. First, you have to
know what's wrong with
you. And Israelis don't see
the problems at home. They
are blind to the perils of
withdrawing from the ter-
ritories, to the warnings of
demographers.
"Not a single party in
Israel provides answers to
these problems. They behave
like ostriches — they put
their heads in the sand and
pass the problem to our chil-
dren and grandchildren.
They speak about Greater
Israel, but what will they do
with the Arabs? We have to
look into each others' eyes
and admit we have a prob-
lem."
Some polls in Israel show
that 61 percent of Jewish
adults there support
transfer. Mr. Ze'evi says it's
closer to 81 percent.
Then, in a revealing mo-
ment, he adds: "I could tell
you about cabinet ministers
and members of parliament
who are pro- transfer but are
too afraid to speak out open-
ly. Someone has to do it." 0
