Canadian Jews _
Live in Poverty

MONTREAL (JTA) —
Nearly one of every five of
Canada's nearly 300,000
Jews live at or below the
Canadian government's
poverty line, based on 1981
census data, according to
Jim Torczyner, chairman of
the Canadian Jewish Con-
gress law and social action
sub-committee on the
Jewish poor.
This 20 percent propor-
tion can be found in almost
all Canadian cities which
have Jewish communities,
Torczyner told the Cana-
dian Jewish News.

Acting Envoy Steps Down, Sees
Better Israel-British Relations

By MAURICE
SAMUELSON

LONDON (JTA) — The
man who has been Israel's
acting Ambassador since
Shlomo Argov was crippled
by Arab terrorists 13
months ago cleared his
desk, saying that Israel-
British relations were
steadily improving after
their worst-ever spell.
Yoav Biran, 47-year-old
minister plenipotentiary, is
being replaced here by 48-
year-old Moshe Raviv who,
like him, will be Israel's
senior representative until
the arrival of Yehuda Av-
ner, the successor to Argov.
Biran, a Hebrew Univer-
sity Oriental studies
graduate, had already been
here five years when Argov
was gunned down outside
London's Dorchester Hotel.
That attack also triggered
off Israel's massive invasion
of Lebanon and an interna-
tional diplomatic crisis in
London with which Biran
has been trying to cope ever
since.
For his valiant efforts,
he has been singled out
by his government as his
country's most outstand-
ing civil servant. But this
was an honor he has not
relished. Homesick for
Jerusalem, Biran was al-
ready impatiently plan-
ning his farewell recep-
tion when the wounding
of Argov forced him to
occupy the ambassador's
desk over a year ago.
Although Biran is hesit-
ant to put it in such grim
terms, the year which has
followed saw British-Israel
relations sink to their low-
est ebb since the end of
British rule in Palestine in
1948. British politicians
and the media reacted vio-
lently to events in Lebanon,
culminating in the horror
caused by the Sabra and
Shatila massacres by
Lebanese Phalangist forces.

But relations, however
fraught, have at least re-
mained intact and Biran is
content to have seen what
he calls "a more relaxed ap-
proach" by the present
British government.
His optimism stems not

merely from the relaxation
of the Lebanese situation
but from the new team
which has taken over the
British Foreign Office fol-
lowing the recent general
election here.
Richard Luce, who has
replaced Douglas Hurd
as the minister in charge
of the Foreign Office, is
carefully studying the
subject before commit-
ting himself to what Is-
raeli circles regard as the
same old pro-Arab line.

The Israeli view is that
this British reassessment is
being conducted because of
a realization that the so-
called moderate Arab
states, from whom Britain
previously expected a posit-
ive reponse, have so far
simply failed to deliver.
In the future, according to
this assessment, Britain is
likely to stay closer to the
Americans and to think
twice before trying to pur-
sue its own path on the Mid-
dle East.

Raviv, the new minister,
is one of Israel's most sea-
soned diplomats. He served
in London in a junior
capacity between 1958 and
1963. He then went on to
serve in Jerusalem, Wash-
ington and the Philippines
before occupying his latest
post as director of the
Foreign Ministry's eco-
nomic division.
Raviv, a youth aliya
refugee from Germany,
will serve as number two
to Avner, scheduled here
at the end of the month.
Originally from Man-
chester, Avner is the first
British-born Israeli Am-
bassador to serve in Lon-
don — although the job
has been held by two
South Africans, Michael
Comay and the late Ar-
thur Lourie.
Biron might have left
even sooner had the British
not reacted negatively to an
earlier request that Eliahu
Lankin, the present ambas-
sador to South Africa,
should replace Argov.
This was because of Lan-
kin's membership in the
Irgun Zvai Leumi, which
indulged in armed attacks

on British forces in the last
years of the Mandate.
In many respects, Lankin
would have been an ideal
candidate for the post.
Thanks to his past political
affiliations, he might have
helped to exorcise Some of
the historic grievances and
misunderstandings which
still occasionally haunt re-
lations between Britain and
the Israel of Premier
Menahem Begin.
But that was not to be. In-
stead, the task of further
improving British-Israeli
relations will be borne
primarily by Avner. He will
be helped by the fact that
the British side, as well as
the Israeli, feels that rela-
tions between these two
traditionally friendly states
have been allowed to de-
troiorate too far. As one
senior British official re-
cently remarked, "At least
the new man will be able to
understand our mentality."

Puerto Rico,
Israel Prepare
Agriculture Pact

TEL AVIV (JNI) — Israel
and Puerto Rico are work-
ing on a treaty for the over-
all agricultural develop-
ment of the U.S. common-
wealth, Yediot Ahronot re-
ported.
Under the terms of the
treaty, the U.S. government
will invest "several million"
dollars in the venture, the
first in which Israel will
plan the comprehensive
agro-industrial ; develop-
ment of another state, the
daily asserted.
A number of Israeli com-
panies already cooperate on
agricultural or, industrial
projects in Central America
and the Caribbean. They
have founded, as well as up-
graded, regional industries
for improved local consump-
tion and export, but never
worked in tandem.

Computer Export

NEW YORK — Cycon
Computer Systems Ltd. of

in the U.S. a $45,000
CAD/CAM system for small
machine shop operations.
