Israel's Jewish ethnic problem-like the national conflict with the Arabs and the secular-religious Jewish cultural divide-poses one of its greatest challenges. While Israeli researchers may dispute its causes, they all nevertheless agree that in religious and national terms it is an internal, Jewish problem involving two ethnic groups from different parts of the world: broadly speaking, Europe on the one hand and Asia and Africa on the other.
