THE DETROIT JEWISH NEWS

Church Group, Arabs Pressure
Canada on Jerusalem Pledge

VISIT

TORONTO (JTA) — The
Commission on World Con-
cerns of the Canadian
Council of Churches has
urged Prime Minister Joe
Clark to hold off a decision
to move the Canadian Em-
bassy from Tel Aviv to
Jerusalem because it would
be prejudicial and unhelp-
ful.

In a letter also sent to Ex-
ternal Affairs Minister
Flora MacDonald, council
official Donald Anderson
wrote, for Canada now to
move the embassy to
Jerusalem would be to pre-
judge in Israel's favor, one of
the most difficult of issues
that must be settled by
negotiated compromise.
He recommended that
Clark delay the move
until the prime minister
has had a full opportu-
nity to review all ramifi-
cation's of such a move. It
is already clear, he said,
that Jerusalem's status
will be one of the most
contentious issues to face
Israeli and Egyptian
negotiators.
The council is the um-
brella group of the
mainstream Protestant
Canadian churches.
In Ottawa, Finance
Minister John Crosby said
that "Canadians should not
lose sleep over the state-
ment put out by the Arab
League Monetary Fund in
Abu Dahbi threatening to
suspend any financial
transactions and boycott
Canadian banking and fi-
nancial institutions."
He was referring to a re-
port from Bahrain that the
Arab Monetary Fund, an
Arab League agency based
in Abu Dahbi, has sus-
pended all financial
dealings with Canada to
protest the Canadian gov-
ernment's plans to move its
embassy in Israel from Tel
Aviv to Jerusalem.

Crosby said that he has
asked the Arab countries
for clarification and that
he would abstain from
any further comments at
the moment.
Roland
Meanwhile,
Frazee, president of the
Royal Bank of Canada,
Canada's largest bank, said
"I have never heard of the
Arab Monetary Fund." The
report from Bahrain said
that the AMF has already
withdrawn its funds depos-
ited with Canadian banks
and has banned all further
transactions with them.
In Johannesburg, the
South African Zionist Fed-
eration has called on the
government in Pretoria to
emulate Canada's promise
to transfer his country's
embassy in Israel from Tel
Aviv to Jerusalem.
In Washington, the State
Department has refused to
say whether it has been
engaged in any discussions
with the Canadian govern-
ment over Prime Minister
Clark's election campaign
promise to move Canada's
Embassy in Israel from Tel
Aviv to Jerusalem.

Asked if the U.S. was in
communication with the
Clark government on the
matter, the departments
chief spokesman Hod-
ding Carter replied, "I
won't be able to go into
such matters. The Cana-
dian government is very
aware of our position."
When it was suggested
that he gave the impression
that the Carter Administra-
tion was engaged in such
communications since he
did not deny the reports, the
spokesman said all he was
implying was that "I don't
want to go into our diploma-
tic conversations.
Reminded that the 1976
Democratic Party platform
called for the transfer of the
U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem,
Carter replied that there
are other planks in the plat-
form that have not been car-
ried out.
Earlier this week, Cana-
da's Minister of State for
External Affairs, Flora
MacDonald, said in a formal
statement that while the
government intends to
move its embassy to
Jerusalem, it will take into
consideration the views of
the U.S. and the Arab
states.
Meanwhile, the Nether-
lands, which has had-its
embassy in Jerusalem
since Februaty, 1949, has
no intention of moving it
to Tel Aviv.
In a related development,
the Canadian government
was requested to abrogate
an Air Canada aircraft
maintenance contract with
Saudi Arabia which bans
firms in Israel or owned by
Israeli nationals from par-
ticipating in sub-contract
repair work on a Saudi Loc-
kheed 1011 aircraft at
Montreal's Dorval Airport.
The request came from the

Workmen's Circle, the
Jewish labor fraternal or-
der.
"We have asked Don
Mazankowski, the Cana-
dian Minister of Transport,
to investigate who is re-
sponsible at Air Canada for
entering into such a dis-
criminatory and inflam-
matory agreement," Ber-
nard Backer, president of
the Workmen's Circle said.
Air Canada is a state-owned
airline.
