56% of Jerusalem Children Living in Poverty

 

The annual report published by the Jerusalem Institute for Israel Studies and the Jerusalem Municipality claims that 56 percent of the capital's children were living in poverty in 2007.

The study demonstrates that the city's Arab population suffers more poverty than their Jewish counterparts, with 62 percent of Arab families living below the poverty line, compared to 23 percent of the city's Jewish families.

  Historically  
 
the Arabs have always lived in what the West would consider poverty. Maybe their rich Islamic brothers should share their oil wealth with them?

  Interesting  
 
to note a comment from the source:"Data also shows that participation in the work force among Jerusalem residents is among the lowest in Israel. Maya Hoshan and Michal Korach, the report editors, say the low work-force figures are due to extremely high unemployment numbers among Ultra-Orthodox men and Arab women"
It would seem Orthodox men and Arab women getting jobs might improve their financial situation? Go figure.
