28% of Israelis do not want neighbors who are Hareidi, according to a survey carried out by the local government, and is published this morning (Sunday) in the newspaper "Israel Today". 54% of Israelis do not want a foreign worker as a neighbor.

Only 2% were of the opinion that they do not want to live near Ethiopians, none of those polled said he had a problem living next to Oriental, national religious and Ashkenazim.

The survey was conducted for the Twin Cities conference of Israel - Germany conducted by the local government this week.

The survey examined attitudes and preferences of the Israeli public about investment in housing, education and culture.

In choosing a place to live, apparently what it is important to Israelis is firstly – the financial situation of the community and the value of apartments in it, and then the level of education. Most Israelis also have strong opinions on politics and current events. For example, 58% say they would vote in the next election, compared to 13% who did not (the rest are undecided or do not know).

Young people up to the age of 35 think that the protest did not harm or help to promote their interests.

Israelis were also asked what they think about cutting down on the defense budget for the sake of funding culture, the vast majority (73%) claimed that there is no place for such cuts. Regarding foreign relations and contacts with Germany, most of the public (56%), said they think ties with Germany are important.

In addition, 61% say they will vote in the municipal elections to come.

Attorney Oded Feller from the Association for Civil Rights commented: "The information is very regrettable. One can see some trends which are ugly and disgusting but on the other side there are nice things. In the past, foreigners were received with understanding and even affection. But today when families live in an apartment near one with 30 Sudanese. So obviously no one wants to live like that – on both sides. "

Local government chairman, Shlomo Bohbot said: "We see from the results that there is no substitute for local leadership."
