Brothers and Keepers

Continued from preceding page

2,000 Jews still trapped in the

Sudan.) Still, the moral
beauty of Operation Moses
consists in all of this being,
until all the Falashas are safe,
beside the point. One of the
characteristic features of bit-
zu'ism is a contempt for ex-
cuses, for circumstances that
extentuate. Rescue first,
worry later. Better the most
bitter warfare within the
Jewish state than ceremonies
of commemoration for a lost
Jewry. Bitzu'ism is deceptive.
Behind its appearance of unre-
flective practicality lies a sup-
reme moral seriousness.
As Falashas stream into Is-
rael, Palestinians are watch-
ing. No doubt their intellectu-
als in the West will soon com-
plain of more of the old injus-
tice: that strangers to Pales-
tine will be allowed to "return"
while natives of Palestine will
not. Why will they never
learn? Why do they take the
Zionist ethic as an enemy and
not an example? For there is
nothing wrong with the Pales-
tinian predicament, that a bit
of bitzu'ism could not cure. Not-
violence, which is the mis-
taken Palestinian construc-
tion of action in an emergency,

and the opposite of bitzu'ism.
Rescue, not revolution, is what
the Palestinians require.
Isaiah Berlin once observed
that the Zionists, too, could
have kept up a few refugee
camps in Cyprus and made
political hay. Instead they got
the priorities of a national
movement straight. The Arab
governments have taken the
other course. They have coldly
gazed upon their Palestinian
brothers in those shantytowns
they call refugee . camps and
manipulated their misery.
The Palestinians, in short, are
given a choice. They must
choose between the cynicism
of the Arab governments and
the pragmatism of the Jewish
government. All that the Jews
have done for the Jews is there
for their eyes to see. The Jews
have proved that happiness in
half of the land is better than
unhappiness in the whole.
They have proved what a
blessing a certain kind of ac-
tion can be. They have made
compassion efficient. Consider
the Falashas, who are falasha
no more.

Montreal (JTA) — An indepen-
dent commission to investigate
Nazi war criminals living in
Canada has been appointed by
Justice Minister John Crosbie, to
be headed by former Chief Justice
Jules Dechene of the Quebec Sup-
reme Court.
Whe task of the commission,
Crosbie told the House of Com-
mons last week, will be to estab-
lish whether there are any former
Nazis and war criminals pre-
sently living in Canada, when and
how they entered the country and
any other information about their
past and present activities with a
view to bringing to justice those
guilty of war crimes and crimes
against humanity.
The commission has until Dec.
31 to render its report and find-
.
ings.
"A highly important matter
like this requires a thorough in-
vestigation," Crosbie declared,
adding, "These criminals must be
brought to justice."
But if that is to be done, Cana-
dian laws need revision to enable
the prosecution of war criminals
in Canada, according to a report
by the Canadian Law Enforce-
ment Commission headed by Jus-
tice Allen Linden. Linden main-
tained that Canada's war crimes
legislation is lax and outdated
and is in need of review by gov-
ernment officials and the parties
concerned.
Linden asked rhetorically in his
roport„,vvhy suspected war crimi 7

nals living in Canada should es-
cape prosecution because extradi-
tion has not been sought or be-
cause it is blocked by the
legalities or is rendered impossi-
ble because of the nature of the
requesting country's judicial sys-
tem. Another major obstacle, he
said, has been the aversion of the
Canadian justice system to re-
troactive legislation.
Linden's commission is recom-
mending the creation of a new
criminal offense related to war
crimes and the institution of civi-
lian trials of persons accused of
war crimes.
This turn of events has been
hailed by the Canadian Jewish
Congress and other groups. How-
ever, former Solicitor General
Robert Kaplan, a member of the
opposition, was sharply critical of
what he considers the inordinate
length of time to be allowed the
Dechene commission to submit its
report. Kaplan expressed concern
that many suspects who may
come under investigation might
simply disappear.
