Anti-Israel Arabs Drawn to Quebec

sell Jewish blood for our

In Jerusalem, a district
court found nine Jewish De-
fense League members guilty
of criminal violation of pri-
vate limits and of conspiracy
to damage two missionary
institutions in the city last
February. One of the de-
fendants was acquitted.

The nine were charged
with illegal entry in a church
on the Mount of Olives and
a Christian book store, and
with harassing its occupants.
Following the disturbance,
a fire occurred in the book
store and many of the books
were burned or damaged.
But the court did not find
any of the defendants guilty
on a charge of arson because
police could not identify any
of them as directly respon-
sible for the fire. The court
will pronounce sentence in
another session.

TORONTO — To attract
Arab financial investment,
Quebec has opened its doors
to immigrants coming from
the Middle East. At present
over half of the Canadian
Arab community resides in
Montreal, writes Mark Me-
dicoff in the Canadian Jew-
ish News of Toronto.
One highly placed source
revealed that negotiations
are taking place between the
Quebec government and one
Middle East government to
invest in oil refineries in
eastern Montreal.
The two local groups - in
Montreal are the Federation
of Arab Canadian Societies
and the Quebec-Palestine As-
sociation, but other, smaller
committees operate on the
campuses, notably the Pale-
stine Association of Montreal.
Such groups as the Soli-
darity with Indo-Chinese
People, the Iranian Students
Association of McGill Uni-

versity and the Progressive
Ethiopian Students' Front
and other ineffective Maoist
groups are closely aligned
in spirit to the objectives of
the federation.

Rezeq Faraj, the profes-
sional attached to the federa-
tion and the Quebec-Palestine
Association, claims that
there are some 2,000 mem-
bers in Montreal. "But only
a few hundred are active,"
he points out.

Faraj denies any connec-
tion of the Quebec-Palestine
Association with the Pal-
estine Liberatioon Organiza-
tion, although he admits that
the association is in close
contact with the PLO's re-
search center. He is also
editor of Fedayin, a monthly
periodical initiated last
March, which is published by
the Quebec-Palestine Asso-
ciatioon. In that organization
he is president.
The periodical is financeJ
by the Montreal Council of
the Confederation of Nation-
al Trade Unions, where
Michel Chartrand holds the
office of president. Chart-
rand has grown increasingly
more sympathetic to the
Arab cause in the Middle
East, particularly after his
visit last year.
Dr. Baha Abu-Laban, a
Palestinian-born academician
who taught in the Near East
and the U.S. before joining
the University of Alberta in
1961, said some 80 to 100
families of Middle Eastern
origin make their home in
Alberta. The only active or-
ganizations in Calgary in-
clude the federation, the
Arab Club of Calgary and
the university's Arab Stu-
dents' Association. In Ed-
monton, activities are mainly
initiated by the campus-bas-
ed groups.

Vancouver also has a large
Arab community. One group,
the British Columbia Muslim
Association, which repre-
sents about 2,500 Muslims,
has recently pressed for the
construction of a mosque on
49th Street in the city.

creased in recent months,

stantial sums of money are
being spent to present the

The pro-Palestinian move-
ment has been growing dis-
cernibly, and as well, the
Canadian Arab population
has risen to some 120,000
members. Some 40,000 Arabs
make their home in Quebec.

The federation's president
is Jim Peters, a burly Ryer-
son professor who was born
in Scotland, but who exposes
the cause with more zeal
than any Arab national. He
stresses "we must face up
to the challenges •• of being
an Arab."

As a result of a $2,500
grant from the Ontario gov-
ernment, a $7,000 grant from
the federal government, and
$500 in donations, Peters
and his group have estab-
lished a community center
with the cooperation of the
Cross and Crescent Associa-
tion of Toronto and the Arab
Palestine Association.
