MONTREAL, (JTA) — "The
success of inter-ethnic relations
is the majestic theme of Cana-
dian history," and those rela-
tions must be reaffirmed both
through education and through
law, Prime Minister John G.
Diefenbaker declared at a din-
ner which was part of the Cana-
dian Jewish Congress celebra-
tion of the National Bicentenary
of Canadian Jewry.
Every ministry of the Cana-
dian government was represent-
ed at the gala event at which
Samuel B r o n f ma n, national
president of the Canadian Jew-
ish Congress, declared that the
200,000 Jews in Canada pledge
anew their "dedication to the
ideals of Canadian concord."
Prime Minister . Diefenbaker
praised the work of Canadian
Jews in fighting for freedom in
Canada, declaring they have
fought for "freedom for them-
selves and for other Canadians,
in time of war and in time of
peace."
"The 200th anniversary of
Jewish settlement in Canada,'
said the Prime Minister, "is an
event which belongs not to one
minority, but to the Canadian
people as a whole."
The shrine recently dedi-
cated at Three Rivers, com-
memorating the first Jew
there, Aaron Hart, is a "na-
tional shrine ; to Canadian
freedom," Diefenbaker as-
serted.
Touching upon his attitude
toward Israel. Diefenbaker told
the audience "I have visited
Palestine, and have sat at a
seder in Jerusalem. I am wit-
ness to the message of freedom
some 3,000 years old. I see in
the State of Israel the embodi-
ment. of that search for freedom
which the Jewish people have
promised during their entire
history.
"I had the privilege of pre-
senting to the Law Faculty of
the Hebrew University in Jerus-
alem the chair of the founder
of our nation, Sir John A. Mac-
Donald. This is a token of our
appreciation of the contribution
of Canadian Jewry to the devel-
opment of democracy and to
democratic freedom in Canada."
Avraham Harman, Israel Am-
bassador to the United States,
addressing the Bicentenary con-
vention of the Canadian Jewish
Congress, said: "While discharg-
ing the full obligations of
American or Canadian citizen-
ship, the Jews on this continent

also discharge their obligation
to their own local communities
and to the scattered Jewish peo-
ple everywhere. They sought
and obtained freedom for their
brethren in other countries and
used their own freedom to help
the Jewish people right the
wrong of 2,009 years."
Dr. Israel Goldstein, address
Mg the convention, reported his
impressions on the Jewish
moods in the countries of Asia
and Africa which he visited this
year.
The Canadian Jewish Con-
gress concluded its conven-
tion with the adoption of a
resolution opposing the intro-
duction of religious education
in Canadian public schools.
SaMuel Bronfman was re-
elected national president of
the organization.
The CJC resolution against
religion in the public school
system deplored the fact that
religious education has been in-
troduced into the curriculum
of public schools in certain
provinces. This practice is prej-
udicial and violates democratic
tradition of separation of church
and state, the resolution stress-
ed. The convention also adopted
a resolution reaffirming the de-
votion of Canadian Jewry to Is-
rael and calling upon every Jew
in Canada to continue to aid Is-
rael in every possible way.
A report showing that anti-
Semitism has decreased in the
Province of Quebec and else-
where in Canada.waS submitted
to the plenary session of the
Canadian Jewish Congress by
Fred Catzman, of the joint pub-
lic relations committee of the
Congress and Bnai Brith. Even
the "lunatic fringe" publica-
tions, Mr. Catzman reported,
"do not dwell much on Jews."
He asserted that "the militant
actions" of Canadian groups are
destroying "the vestiges of anti-
Semitism."

Israel Peace Bid
Rejected Again

(Continued from Page 1)
the USSR was willing to ac-
cept even the co-sponsorship of
NationaliSt China, which Mos;
cow does not recognize.

A neutral source here, com-
menting on that behind-the-
scenes fracas, declared: "This
only shows that, when the Big
Powers stand firm, the usual
Arab stubbornness collapses.
Everybody is tired of Arab re-
fusal to recognize the fact of
Israel's existence, and more
firmness should be shown
against the Arab attitude here.
The Arab delegations did not CI
dare to keep their names off
the resolution's co-sponsorship
list, when it came to a show-
0
down."
Lourie's mention of the pos-
sibility of a regional disarma-
ment agreement in the Middle
East was a reminder to the As-
sembly that such a plan had
been offered by Israel here in
the past. It has already been
made clear by the British, how-
ever, that no such regional pact
will be sought at present.
Lourie's disarmament and 0
peace plans were spurned by
the Saudi Arabian delegate,
Ahmad Shukairy, who said "no
regional disarmament plan can
be put into effect in relation to
the Middle East except when
Israelis are driven out of the
area." He said "Israel and dis-
armament in the Middle East
are incompatible and there is
no room for both."
