Continued Part Two;(3) Jewish groups consistently disagree on a range of specific public issues.With more religiously observant Jews saying, for example, that Israel should shut down public transport on the Sabbath (as it mostly does); secular Jews almost universally say public transport should remain running Jews of varying levels of religious observance also take starkly different positions on some key aspects of the Jewish state.for instance.In a hypothetical conflict.between democratic principles and Jewish law (halakha), ultra –orthodox Jews overwhelmingly say Jewish law should take precedence (89%), while an equally large share of secular Jews say democratic ideals should take priority. (4) ISRAEL DIVERSE RELIGIOUS LANDSCAPE / PEW RESEARCH CENTER. ; About eight — in– ten (81%) Israeli adults are Jewish, while the remainder are mostly ethnically Arab and Religiously Muslim (14%), Christians (2%) Or Druze (2%). Overall, the Arab religious minorities in Israel are more religiously observant than Jews.And these groups all are largely isolated from one another socially; there is virtually no religious intermarriage in Israel, and strong majorities of Jews, Muslims, Christians and Druze say all or most of their close friends belong to their own religious group.(5) Perhaps the strongest indication of the major fractures in Israeli society is that roughly half of Israeli society (48%) say Arabs should be transferred or expelled from Israel while a similar share (46%) disagree with this. In addition, Israeli Jews and Arabs disagree on whether the country can be a Jewish State and a democracy at the same time. About Three –quarters (76%) of Israeli Jews believe this to be possible,but relatively few Israeli Arabs (27%) agree.And a shrinking share of Israeli Arabs believe Israel and Independent Palestinian State could Coexist peacefully (74% believed this in 2013, Compared with 50 % in the new survey ). Few Jews (10 %) say Palestinian leadership is Sincerely Seeking a Peace Settlement. While few Israeli Arabs (20%) think the Israel government is genuinely pursuing peace. (6) ISRAELI JEWS FEEL STRONG BOND WITH AMERICAN JEWS; % of lsraeli Jews who say…. They have in Common with American Jews A lot/ Some 68% not too much/nothing 31% They share a Common destiny with American Jews to a great extent/ To some extent 76% not much/ hardly at all 24%. American Jews have a on the way things are going in Israel good influence 59%Bad Influence 6% Neither good nor Bad 31% Source. Survey Conducted October 2014 May 2015 Don’t Know/ Refused responses not shown. PEW RESEARCH CENTER : Together, Israel and the United States of America are home to about 80% of Jews Globally, And there are Strong Bonds between the worlds Two Largest Jewish Populations, Most Israeli Jews feel they Share A Common Destiny with the United States of America. Jews and think United States Jews have a good influence on Israel Affairs.. Americans Jews also harbor warm feelings about Israel ( What the late and first Republican President of Zambia Dr Kenneth David Kaunda wanted to achieve for the front line states presently called SADIC Region). Our 2013 Survey of United States of America Jews found that most say they are either “VERY”(30%) Or Somewhat (39%) Emotionally attached to Israel is either Essential OR Important to what being Jewish means to them. ( Exactly what the late first Republican President of Tanzania achieved by copying what King Lewanika of Barotse land had achieved in the early 18 hundreds by Uniting 38 different tribes to create one language called Lozi , Swahili in Tanzania) in short leaders how draw lessons from there history make good leadership because history makes who we are. More than a third of Israeli Jews have travelled to the United States of America and, Similar Share of United States of America Jews have been to Israel. (Today presently in the SADIC Region which we as Zambians suffered Economically and lost our Human life in trying to unify and liberate our brothers and Sisters which we are achieved at a very great cost but been African we are still subjected to harsh border conditions to trade or visit the Same people we kept and sheltered under very difficult conditions reasons being History isn’t been told or we are getting used to a culture of sweeping the truth under the Carpet). We need answers from our governments. (7) RELIGION AND CULTURE; Israeli Jews overall are more religious than United States of America Jews, partly because Orthodox Jews make up a greater share of the population. But Israeli Jews also are more Religiously Polarized than United States of America Jews; They are more likely than United States of America Jews to say they go to Synagogue either weekly or never, while Jewish Americans are more likely to Attend Synagogue on an Occasional basis ( eg… a few times a year, such as for the Jewish high holidays). Jews in the two also have different Political Ideologies; About half of United States of America Jews (49%) Identify as politically liberal in an American context.while only 8% of Israeli Jews place themselves on the left of the Israel political spectrums (liberal/ Moderate/ Conservative in the United States of America and left/ Center/ right in Israel) represent different Constellations of views on Political, economic and social issues in each country. Nevertheless,in both Israel and the United States of America religious Jews tend to learn more to right, while more Secular Jews are Centrist or Liberal. I thank you for reading this article.
