Chapter Summary

More than a million Russian-speaking newcomers to Israel very soon learned to turn their numbers into political power, and to secure a government policy relatively favorable to the needs of their community. It is interesting to note that the Russian-speaking immigrants had no tradition of organized community activity in their country of origin. The Russian community in Israel is anything but homogenous. But among the few things its members have in common is their hesitant attitude towards the local culture, a certain cultural arrogance and the almost total lack of ?melting intentions." The Vesti newspaper, an Israeli newspaper in Russian, is the third most popular newspaper in Israel after Yediot Aharonot and Ma'ariv, with a circulation of over 55,000 for its weekend edition.
