Neo-Nazi Attack
Raises Fears

Toronto (JTA) — Police have
arrested two neo-Nazis who
assaulted and yelled anti-
Semitic insults at the Jewish
owner of an Ontario clothing
store, raising anew ques-
tions about the extent of
right-wing racism in
Canada.
The confrontation began
when Elliot Eisen, 50, owner
of the Headin' West Store in
Kitchener, asked a group of
three people, two of them
dressed in neo-Nazi garb, to
leave his store.
The intruders shoved Mr.
Eisen, spat on him, shouted
anti- Semitic slurs and
threw his merchandise down
on the floor of the store in
Kitchener, about 60 miles
from Toronto.
Paul McGraw, 20, of Kit-
chener was charged with ut-
tering death threats and
assault with a weapon. And
a 17-year-old minor was
charged with trespassing.
They are both members of
the white supremacist
Heritage Front, according to
Bernie Farber, a spokesman
for the Canadian Jewish
Congress.
The incident came just
four days after skinheads
and members of the small,
yet highly vocal, Heritage
Front group clashed with
anti-racist protesters in
front of the Parliament
building in Ottawa,
shouting the Nazi salute
"Sieg Heil," among other
slogans.
It was the worst outbreak
of violence in the normally
staid Canadian capital in
several years.
Jewish groups reacted
strongly to the attack in Kit-
chener.
Jewish leaders also recall-
ed an arson attack in
November on the home of
Mona Zentner, apparently
triggered by a speech by
British Holocaust denier
David Irving.
"It has opened up an un-
fortunate new chapter of
neo-Nazi activity in
Canada," Mr. Farber said.
"We can no longer be com-
placent."
Frank Dimant, executive
vice president of B'nai Brith
Canada, repeated his call for
a "national multilevel task
force" to examine the prob-
lem of hate groups and hate
propaganda and to recom-
mend legal solutions.
"This incident serves to
drive home the fact that

Canada is facing a serious
problem from racism and
violence," Mr. Dimant said.
Despite the concern of the
country's two main Jewish
groups, the number of anti-
Semitic incidents in Canada
in 1992 dropped sharply
from the previous year, ac-
cording to an annual report
released in March by B'nai
Brith's League for Human

rights.
Rabbi Dow Marmur of

Toronto's Holy Blossom
Temple, whose congregation
recently held a forum on an-
ti-Semitism, said he was not
surprised to learn that the
incidence of anti-Semitism
was on the wane according
to these reports.
"Jewish perceptions of an-
ti-Semitism baffle resear-
chers," Rabbi Marmur
noted.
"While there are strong
indications anti-Semitism is
actually decreasing in
Canada, most Canadian
Jews believe it is increasing.
The objective facts . do not
tally with subjective percep-
tions.
"While non-Jews appear to
be more tolerant, Jews feel
more vulnerable," he said.
In a feature article May 24
in Toronto's Globe and Mail,
titled "Overanxious About
Anti-Semitism," the
prestigious national daily
noted, "Prejudice against
Jews is seen to be reaching
crisis proportions, as
swastikas are painted on
synagogues and. neo-Nazis
peddle hate."
Yet, the newspaper claim-
ed, "polls show anti-Semitic
views on a long-term decline,
and watchdog groups may be
creating tension by exag-
gerating the threat to serve
their own interests."

Italian Shul
Is Marred

Rome (JTA) - Anti-Semitic
and skinhead graffiti were
scrawled on the synagogue
in the northern Italian town
of Merano earlier this mon-
th, Federico Steinhaus, pres-
ident of the local Jewish
community, reported.
Mr. Steinhaus said
swastikas, the SS insignia
and the cross-in- a-circle
symbol of New Order, an
ultra-rightist youth group
associated with skinhead .a.c-
tivities, were scrawled near
the entrance.
