The increasing importance of Arab laborers to Israel’s work force was made apparent Wednesday when large numbers of them failed to show up for their jobs. They took the day off to celebrate the Moslem feast of Id el Adha. As a result, many factories were short-handed and many hotels and restaurants were unable to provide full service to their patrons. Mosques in Arab townships in Israel and in the occupied territories were jammed.
