The reported decline in terrorist
TORONTO (JTA)—The lay lead-
er of Canada's largest Protestant
church said in a radio debate here
that Canadian Jews were "para-
noid" on the subject of Israel and
had "split loyalty" on it.
Dr. Robert McClure, moderator
of the United Church of Canada,
spoke in a dialogue with Emil
Fackenheim, a Jewish writer and
professor of philosophy at Toronto
University, which was broadcast
live by the Canadian Brodacasting
Corp. Dr. McClure, a physician, is
titular head of the church.
He maintained that the Jews of
Canada wore "three hats"—first
as Canadian citizens and second as
Jewish religionists, which posed
no problems. But in relation to
their attitude toward Israel, he
said, they have a persecution com-
plex and resent any criticism.
Prof. Fackenheim replied that
in more than 20 years, the Chris-
tian community had failed to come
to terms with the Nazi holocaust,
citing its silence before the June
1967 war when Arabs were threat-
ening the destruction of all Jews
in Israel. He asked Dr. McClure
if he felt a "split loyalty between
Canada and Christ."
Dr. McClure suggested that
Canadian Jews felt obliged to
"shout louder" because they had
a guilty conscience — they were
more comfortable in Canada than
are Jews in Israel.
The United Church of Canada is
Methodist and Congregationalist
and includes a section of Presby-
terians. Its official organ, the Ob-
server, is edited by Rev. A. C.
Forrest, who has been condemned
by many • Canadian clergymen for
anti-Israel, pro-Arab bias. It has
consistently carried articles un-
favorable to Israel.

activities contrasted with claims
by Arab commando groups that
they were stepping up pressure
and had forced Israel to call up
reserves and dispatch troop re-
inforcements to the frontiers.
An Israeli spokesman said there
had been no call-up of reserves
and that troop concentrations were
at a normal level.
The decline in commando activi-
ty was attributed here to Arab
fear of reprisals such as the Dec.
28 raid on Beirut Airport. Israeli
military sources further maintain-
ed that strategic raids on com-
mando bases had severely handi-
