OPINION

Let it be known that the
Jewish community was there
in force — whatever the
result. We have no other
responsible choice. The
freedoms we cherish and
values we espouse will either
be bolstered or crippled by
what we do now. Election day
is only two months away.

Jews Protest
Canadian Bias

Toronto (JTA) — The Cana-
dian Jewish Congress has de-
nounced as discriminatory
the acquiescence of the Cana-
dian government to a request
to exclude Jews, women and
those of Arab extraction from
the Canadian military con-
tingent sent to monitor the
cease-fire between Iran and
Iraq.
Dorothy Reitman, president
of the CJC, said in a state-
ment, that while Canadian
participation is laudable, it is
unfortunate that conditions
not acceptable and illegal
would be acceded to by
Canada.
A total of 500 Canadian
personnel will be sent to the
gulf region as part of
Canada's contingent to
• monitor the truce between
the two countries.
Captain Don Ryan of the
Department of Defense con-
firmed that Canada will not
send Jews, women or persons
of Arab origin to the region.
"There are sensitivities in
that area, so we don't want to
jeopardize peacekeeping ef-
forts."

Rosh Hashana is a time of beginnings.
The start of a New Year.
Our hopes and prayers for everyone.
Good health, prosperity, and a year of
peace at home and in Israel.
We believe the time has come for all
of us to re-establish with enthusiasm
our commitment to our community
and the world Jewish community.
From all your friends at Tapper's,
have a Happy and Healthy New Year.

Howard and Steven Tapper

Non-Jews Exit
On Israeli Visas

Tel Aviv (JTA) — More than
500 non-Jews have left the
Soviet Union this year on
Israeli visas, complicating ef-
forts to compile accurate
statistics on trends in Soviet
Jewish emigration.
The non-Jewish emigres,
mainly religious and political
dissidents, arrive in Vienna
along with Soviet Jews. In-
asmuch as they carry Israeli
visas, they are counted
among those who opt to go to
countries other than Israel.
This results in inflation of
the so-called "dropout" rate —
the number of emigres
deciding not to settle in
Israel. The rate ends up being
higher than it would be if on-
ly Jews were counted.
The granting of Israeli visas
to non-Jews, which is done at
Moscow's request, also makes
it more difficult to measure
the overall rate of Soviet
Jewish emigration accurately.
