    For some reason when the North African Jews arrived they were "marked as "thinic", and the Eastern Erupean immigrants were "absoorped" as Israel, or at least regared as family. The result of that was the Secuarist Zionist had a place for thm right away, and those North African Jews who had acculturarated an the French political culture were kept out even those who considered themselves seuular. The fact was that many North African Jews were quite up todate on things hat Israelis were still quite provinical so that it is said that Corrine Alal, who came from Tunis was surpised not to hear the Beatles on the radio, and when she learned the resson. Indeed, one of the reason that David Levy, who grew up Socialist in Morrroc, became Herut was that the Ashenazim forgot that many Jews in the French speaking areas voted for that party there, but . . .alas, And they still haven't! . . .
