Quebec Leader Would Recognize Israel
and Seek Solution for Palestinian 'Entity'

WASHINGTON (JTA) —
Quebec Premier Rene
Levesque, who seeks politi-
cal independence for the
Canadian province he
heads, said here that if
Quebec becomes sovereign,
its government will recog-
nize Israel and favor a solu-
tion for the Palestinian
Arabs in an "entity" of their
own.
Levesque, in Washington
seeking support of
sovereignty for the French-
speaking province, did not
discuss the Middle East in
his address last Thursday at
the National Press Club.
However, later, in an inter-
view with the Jewish Tele-
graphic Agency, he said his
government would have "no

problem recognizing Is-
rael." -
"The state of Israel is a
national fact," he said. "We
also would like a sharing of
some sort with the Palesti-
nians." Speaking of an "en-
tity" for them, he said that
"a solution should be found
so that the two can co-exist."
Levesque declined to
proVide his views on the
Palestinian Liberation
Organization. "Don't get
me into that can of
worms," he said.
He observed, "We have a
large Jewish community" in
Quebec and -a "growing"
number of Palestinian
Arabs. Canada's Jewish
population is 305;000.
About 115,000 live in
Montreal, Quebec's met-
ropolis.
Levesque said that he dis-
cussed Israeli-Arab rela-
tions recently with former
Israeli Defense Minister
Shimon Peres when the lat-
ter visited Montreal.
In a speech after return-
ing to Montreal, Levesque
urged the Jews of the pro-
vince of Quebec to reconcile
themselves to and integrate
with the French cultural
and linguistic majority in
Quebec. He also gave his
"solemn assurances" that
his government will not tol-
erate any form of "racism or
discrimination."
Levesque addressed
1,500 Jews at the Chevra
Kadisha Bnai Jacob
Synagogue. He received
only polite applau-se from
his audience during his
speech and in a question
period which coveren
both domestic matters
and his attitude toward
Israel. .
Levesque was infuriated
by a group of Jewish youths
who heckled him as he en-
tered the synagogue and
waved banners equating
the Parti Quebecois with
the Nazis.
He told the audience, "I
was overseas during the
war and among the first
group that went into the
Dachau concentration camp
and I know what happened
in Europe." There is no
comparison, he declared,
between "the mad empire of
Nazi Germany and the
bootstrap nationalist opera-
tion that we have to go
through like you did to get
your homeland."

A member of the audience
reminded Levesque of a
newspaper column he wrote
at the time of the Munich
Olympics massacre in 1972
and asked bluntly, "Do you
belieVe that Israel deserves
to live as a sovereign Jewish
state?"
Levesque noted that he
had described the mur-
der of the 11 Israeli
Olympic athletes as
"barbaric" and had writ-
ten, "That kind of atroc-
ity was inexcusable."
But, he said "the
background had to be
understood."
Levesque said that while
he understands the Jewish
community's feelings for Is-
rael, "this sometimes makes
some Jewish people unable
to accept normal criticism of
Israel."
He added, "If a way is not
found to dovetail eventually
the two complimentary

Import Tax - Cut

GENEVA (JTA) — Israel
and the Scandinavian coun-
tries have concluded
negotiations on tax reduc-
tion in the framework of the
General Agreement on
Tariffs and Trade (GATT).
Finland will cut taxes on
Israeli citrus by 50 percent
and on citrus juices by 40
percent. Norway promised
to allow for more turkey
meat to be imported from Is-
rael. It will be four times
more, which amounts to 20
tons instead of five tons.
Sweden will permit spe-
cial tariff reduction on flow-
ers.
