Wadi Salib

   An Oriental Jewish (primarily North African) slum neighborhood in Haifa in which there were riots in July 1959 in the wake of a rumor that a police officer had killed a local resident. Subsequently, other riots in Wadi Salib and elsewhere drew attention to the poor economic and social conditions in which many Oriental immigrants (see ALIYA) were living. Wadi Salib became a symbol of Oriental discontent.
   See also Black Panthers.
