U.S. Pressure on Canada Embassy Move Hit

(Continued from Page 1)
Flora MacDonald, fol-
lowing an hour-long
meeting with the ambas-
sadors of Algeria,
Morocco, Jordan, Iraq,
Saudi Arabia, Lebanon,
Sudan and Somalia, who
vehemently expressed
opposition to the move.
Clark did not attend the
meeting.
Ms. MacDonald declared,
in a prepared statement
that "there is no intention
to go back on the promise to
relocate the embassy" but
"it is not among my
priorities . . . We want to
make sure the goal we want
to reach is achieveable."
She said her government
viewed it as "a long-range
goal."
She pledged that the
"government also will con-
sider the impact of a (em-
bassy) move on Canada's
role in international
peace-keeping and on peace
talks underway between Is-
rael and Egypt. We have
made it clear that we would
not wish any move we make
in this matter to be con-
strued as taking sides in the
on-going negotiations or as
pre-judging the broader

terms of a comprehensive
peace settlement between
all countries in the Middle
East."
Ms. MacDonald ex-
plained that the Canadian
government's goal is "not
simply to settle the question
of Jerusalem as far as
Canada is concerned, but to
contribute if we can to a
broader resolution of this
most sensitive of the issues
outstanding between Israel
and_ the Arab countries."
She said Parliament would
be informed when a decision
was reached, adding, "We
do not have it in mind to act
either precipitiously or
without deliberation."
Meanwhile, Philip Gi-
vens, president of the
Canadian Zionist Feder-
ation, told members of
the CZF national execu-
tive committee meeting in
Toronto that he had a
telephone call from a
senior member of the
Canadian government
assuring him that Clark
has no intention of re-
treating from his prom-
ise.
The External Affairs
Minister's remarks followed
a request for an interview
with Clark by the represen-
tative of the Arab League in
Ottawa and the ambas-
sadors of 18 Arab League
member countries.
The Ambassador of
Morocco was delegated to
express their "profound pro-
test" against the con-
templated move. At the
same time, the Ambassador
of Iraq, Faiq Mukhlis,
stated at a press conference
that his country would
"break off diplomatic rela-

tions with Canada should
the embassy be moved to
Jerusalem."
The Ambassador of Jor-
dan, Waleed Tash, warned
that such a move would be
"very serious" an would af-
fect Canada's relations with
the Arab world "on all
levels."
The organized business
community of Canada
took a grave view of the
matter. Sam Hughes,
president of the Cana-
dian Chamber of Com-
merce which represents
125,000 businessmen,
said, "If the Arab threats
become a reality, then the
business community will
lose an opportunity it is
now enjoying in dealing
with the Middle East."
Fear was expressed in
other business quarters
that Canada could lose
55,700 jobs and $1.6 billion
worth of oil imports if the
Arab countries took repris-
als and cut off trade with
Canada.
Canada also would stand
to lose $1.6 billion worth of
imported goods of which 98
percent is petroleum, if
Arab countries turned off
the oil taps. Canada pre-
sently imports 500,000
barrels of oil a day from the
Middle East.
Liberal MP Louis Duclos,
who was Parliamentary
Secretary to the former
Minister of External Affairs
Don , Jamieson, today
blasted Clark's promise to
move the Canadian Em-
bassy to Jerusalem as an
"illustration of the proper
lack of knowledge of inter-
national affairs in Clark's
party," the Progressive
Conservatives.

But Rabbi Gunther
Plaut, president of the
Canadian Jewish Con-
gress, praised Clark's
promised move.
Meanwhile, Saudi Arabia
and the Arab Gulf states
have warned the Canadian
government of possible
sanctions against Canadian
companies working in the
oil-rich states if the Cana-
dian Embassy in Israel is
transferred from Tel Aviv to
Jerusalem
In a related development,
Bnai Zion, the American
Zionist fraternal order,
ended its 70th annual con-
vention with a call to

ity is refused a visa to leave,
the Rifkins have been
punished by Soviet officials.
Soon after Rifkin applied for
his first visa to go to Israel,
he lost his job as an engineer
and was given a low-paying
job operating an elevator."
Ross said that the Soviets
have refused to explain
their denial of the Rifkins'
request to go to Israel."
Sen. Ross said that nearly
100 citizens had joined the
committee to date, includ-
ing Sen. Faust, Arthur
Hultz, George Hart and
House Speaker Bobby Crim.
In a related development,
a Bar Mitzva is rarely held
openly in the USSR, and
two a week apart are even
more unusual.
Recently, 13-year-old
David Shwartzman and his
parents Anatoly and
Evgenia, all of Moscow, in-
vited Baruch Begun to a join
Bar Mitzva celebration
since Baruch's father has
been banished to Siberia for
teaching Hebrew.

State Sen. Ross Forms Group
to Aid Soviet Jewish Family

LANSING - State Sen.
Doug Ross (D-Oak Park)
announced the formation of
a citizens committee to per-
suade the Soviet govern-
ment to allow a Soviet
Jewish family to emigrate
to Israel.
"The Committee to Aid
the Rifkin Family" is an ef-
fort to focus enough public
attention on the plight of
Dina and Boris Rifkin and
their two children to induce
the Soviet authorities to
permit this Jewish family to
move to Israel," Ross ex-
plained. The Rifkins have
been repeatedly refused
visas to leave the Soviet
Union.
According to Ross, the
Rifkins live in Leningrad
with their 16-year-old son
and 10-year-old daughter.
Mrs. Rifkin is a trained
nurse, while Boris worked
as an engineer.
"As so often happens in
Russia when a Jew or
member of another minor-

President Carter to move
the United States Embassy
in Israel from Tel Aviv to
Jerusalem.
Paul Safro, of Lawrence,
N.Y., who was re-elected to
a second one-year term as
president, urged Carter to
live up to the pledge of the
1976 Democratic Party
Convention which said the,.
embassy should be locate
in Jerusalem.
