JERUSALEM (JTA) —
Unseasonably cold and
rainy weather put a damper
on celebrations of Israel's
35th Independence Day
Monday. The blustery ele-
ments may also have helped
avert clashes between
Peace Now demonstrators
and West Bank settlers at
ceremonies dedicating a
new settlement, Berakha,

overlooking Nablus, the
largest Arab city on the
West Bank.
The thousands of persons
who trekked through mud
to celebrate the 'dedication
or oppose it got a thorough
drenching. The ceremonies
had to be held in doors. De-
puty Premier David Levy,
the only Cabinet member to
attend, did not address the
celebrants and departed by
helicopter after a brief stay.
Berakha, formerly a mili-
tary (Nahal) outpost, was
officially proclaimed a civi-
lian settlement and a hand-
ful of families moved in. But
the opposition Labor Party
and others saw the
government-sponsored
event as a deliberate pro-
vocation to the 100,000
Palestinian residents of
Nablus and had urged the
government to cancel it.
Premier Menahem
Begin ignored their pleas
and, in his Independence
Day speech declared Is-
rael's "inalienable right
to the Land of Israel" and
stressed that his govern-
ment's massive settle-
ment drive would con-
tinue.
Later, Jewish settlers re-
portedly drove through
Arab towns with Isareli
flags flying from their cars
and large color portraits of
Begin on their rear win-
dows. But the territory as a
whole remained quiet in
contrast to the recent weeks
of almost daily clashes be-
tween stone-throwing Arab
youths and Israeli security
forces and settlers.
Independence Day fes-
tivities began in Israel Sun-
day night, before the
weather turned foul. Tens of
thousands of young people
thronged the main streets of
Jerusalem, Tel Aviv, Haifa

and other towns, dancing,
singing and watching
troupes of performers on
temporary stages erected on
sidewalks.
But the downpour Mon-
day forced tens of thousands
of Israelis to cancel their
picnics and outings to the
countryside and seashore.
Nevertheless, many braved
the elements to visit army,
navy and air force bases
which were opened to the
public for the occasion.
An estimated 50,000 per-
sons visited the navy
facility at Ashdod and
thousands of Jerusalemites
toured the Neve Yaacov ar-
tillery base just north of the
city.

Anti-Semitic
Teacher Appeals
Firing in Canada

TORONTO (JTA) — A
federal judge is considering
an appeal against the dis-
missal of a teacher in the
hamlet of Eckville in cen-
tral Alberta who taught his
public school classes that
Jews are responsible for vir-
tually all the evils in the
world.
The appeal was filed by
Jim Keegstra, 48, who dou-
bles as Mayor of Eckville, a
village of 900 in the heart of
Alberta's "Bible Belt." Sev-
eral parents had com-
plained when their children
came home with remarks
such as "all Jews are bad"
and Jews are "an evil group
spreading an evil religion."
The local school board
warned Keegstra to stick to
the curriculum but eventu-
ally fired him when he con-
tinued to preach anti-
Semitism to his pupils. The
hearing on his appeal, held
in Edmonton, lastedaive
days and was attended by
Hillel Boroditsky, executive
director of Edmonton's
Jewish Community Coun-
cil, and Sheldon Chumir, a
civil rights lawyer who flew
in from Calgary. The judge
reserved decision.
