Toronto — The second trial
of Ernst Zundel, a neo-Nazi
propagandist whose convic-
tion three years ago under
Canada's anti-hate laws was
overturned on a technicality,
has been scheduled for federal
court here.
However, no date was an-
nounced for the opening of
the trial, which may last four
months. Judge John Pearson
will preside. The German-
born Zundel, 48, has been liv-
ing in Canada since the mid-
1950s. His status is resident
alien.
Although he has held a
variety of jobs, his main
activity apparently has been
neo-Nazi and anti-Semitic
propaganda. He is responsible
for the publication and
distribution in Canada of the
booklet "Did Six Million
Really Die?" a denial of the
Holocaust written by Richard
Howard, a member of the
British fascist National
Front.
In 1985, Zundel was found
guilty of "spreading false
news" for the purpose of in-
citing racial and religious
hatred. He was sentenced to
15 months in prison. But an
appeals court overturned the
conviction of grounds that

certain evidence ruled inad-
missable by the judge should
have been presented.
In another development in
Canada, a terrorist group in
Lebanon has threatened to
take Canadians hostage if the
government deports Mah-
moud Muhammad Issa Mu-
hammad, a convicted Palesti-
nian terrorist scheduled to
appear in Toronto federal
court for a deportation
hearing. _
The External Affairs
Ministry issued an advisory
to Canadian citizens not to
travel to Lebanon. It
estimates there are 500 to
1,000 Canadian nationals in
that country, including per-
sons holding dual citizenship.
Isssa Muhammad entered
Canada a year ago after ob-
taining an immigrant visa
under false pretenses from
the Canadian Consulate in
Madrid. He is a member of
the Popular Front for the
Liberation of Palestine. He
was convicted by a Greek
court for the 1968 bombing of
an Israeli airliner at Athens
airport, in which one man
was killed. He was sentenced
to 17 years and five months in
prison, but was freed a year
later in a hostage exchange.

FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 5, 1988

,Washington (JTA) — The
100th Congress voted an un-
precedented amount of sup-
port for Israel and for Jews —
everything from funds for
Holocaust studies in Polish
universities to $3 billion in
military and economic grants
to Israel.
Last year, for example, Con-
gress voted to give surplus
milk and cheese to Poland so
long as $500,000 of the money
the Polish government earns
from the sale is used for
Holocaust studies at Polish
universities, according to the
American Israel Public Af-
fairs Committee, which last
week termed the first session
of the 100th Congress "a ben-
chmark in legislative activi-
ty strengthening the U.S.-
Israeli relationship."
The first session assured
Israel will continue to receive
$3 billion annually in
military and economic grants
in 1988 and 1989, meaning
no effect so far from the
Gramm-Rudman-Hollings
deficit-reduction law.
Additional congressional
measures benefitting the

Jewish state, beyond the $3
billion, include:
A debt refinancing plan for
foreign -aid recipients that
will save Israel an estimated
$2 billion over 20 years. The
plan, approved late in 1987, is
expected to be worth $150
million to Israel in 1988 by
converting high-interest
loans to low-interest loans.
$34 million to construct a
Voice of America transmitter
in the Negev.
$25 million for refugee set-
tlement in Israel.
$4 million for joint Middle
East regional development
programs involving Egypt
and Israel.
Military measures include:
Requiring the Pentagon to
buy $38 million of remotely
piloted vehicles (drones) from
Israel.
Permitting Israel to spend
$400 million of the $1.8
billion in military aid for pro-
jects inside Israel.
Funding a U.S. Army study
to evaluate Israeli tank muni-
tions, which could lead to U.S.
purchases of that equipment
from Israel.
