The Toronto Star, in an
editorial, said Clark's state-
ment "was a timely one . . . It
is also a necessary reminder
to members of the Jewish
community in Canada that
they are citizens of Canada,
not Israel!'
That statement brought de-
nounciations of anti-
Semitism from the B'nai
B'rith of Canada and other
Jewish leaders who demand-
ed a front page apology for
the demagoguery implicit in
the "dual loyalty" issue. The
paper reported the reaction
from the Jewish community
but did not apologize for the
remark.
But John Hondreich, the
Star's editorial page editor,
told Editor and Publisher:
"We do not feel the editorial
raised the old canard of dual
loyalty. On reflection we could
perhaps have chosen our
words a little better."
At least Hondreich was a
little more candid than
Lelyveld. As reluctant as the
Star was to apologize, Hon-
dreich seemed to indicate an
understanding of the implica-
tions of his paper's offense to
the Jewish community.
The major point is the
media must not only examine
its overall coverage of Gaza,
West Bank and other sen-
sitive issues, it must write
and edit more carefully.
Bias can creep into news
reports and editorials with a
carefully chosen phrase or
omission of a key word — as
in the Times case — which, in
a sense, is much more in-
sidious than oversimplica-
tions and distortions of major
headlines.
Sloppy reporting or lack of
historical content in the news
or inadvertent unfairness can
be corrected. But how does
one root out or prove motiva-
tion in such articles as those
which appeared in the Times
and Toronto Star?

Israeli
To Be Invited

New York (JTA) — New
York University law pro-
fessors have overturned an at-
tempt to block an invitation
to a visiting Israeli professor
unless he renounces his
government's policies.
In a campus controversy
that raised questions concer-
ning free speech and
academic freedom, members
of the law school faculty voted
April 27 to invite Shmuel
Shilo, professor of Jewish law
at Hebrew University, despite
the objections of Graham
Hughes, a professor of
criminal law and legal
philosophy.
