Canada Says Israel Lobby Exaggerates Boycott

TORONTO (JTA) — A
secret Canadian Cabinet
memorandum affirms
that a working team of
the Ministry of External
Affairs has informed the
government that the
"pro-Israel lobby (in
Canada) has been
exaggerating the effect
on Canadian companies
of the Arab boycott
against Israel."
Furthermore, the
memorandum states that
"the boycott is an emo-
+-ional issue and the in-
lusion of non-
commercial contracts is
repugnant to many
Canadians."
This is believed to be a
reference to advertise-
ments appearing in
Canadian newspapers
placed by Arab com-
panies offering contracts
for projects in those
Duntries but specifying
__2hat Moslems should
apply for jobs in such
projects.
The disclosure of this
memorandum was made
last week by the Toronto
Globe and Mail. There was
no indication as to whether
the memorandum iden-
tified "the pro-Israel
lobby. - While there was no
immediate comment from
government sources on
the memorandum as pub-
lished in the newspaper,
Allan MacEachen, Minis-
ter of External Affairs,
said in a statement in Ot-
tawa that the Cabinet will
make a decision by early
fall regarding government

policy concerning the chairman of the ADL's re-
gional office, "It was re-

Naysky noted that the
Supreme Court has de-
clared it to be a violation
of the Fourteenth
Amendment for an in-
stitution utilizing public
property to discriminate
on the basis of race, reli-
gion or national origin.
In New York, the
American Jewish Con-
gress has called on the
Department of Health,
Education and Welfare to
destroy the results of a
survey of public schools in
five major cities, including
Detroit, requiring
teachers and principles to
identify themselves and
their pupils by race and
ethnic origin.
The survey was under-
taken last spring in New
York, Chicago, Detroit,
Los Angeles and
Philadelphia.
In a letter to HEW Sec-
retary David Mathews,
the Congress declared:
"There is an inherent
and persistent danger
that records which iden-
tify individuals by race or
ethnicity may become the
basis for future discrimi-
nation against them.
"Surely this danger
