THE lETHBRrDGE HERAID - Satonfoy, Moreh �, 1971 Pro-Israeli stand by U.S. major complaint by Arabs By DAVID POKING i~kUB ARAB friends always return to one major complaint in tiie discussions, debates and controversies that follow the Middle East conflict. You hear this argument in the faculty lounge, the student snack bar, the editor's office, the civic reception. It brings conversations to a nice standstill. Smiles vanish and expressions are tense and breathless. 'The major complaint? "You Americans are pro-Israel. You are sold on Zion- ism. You are captivated by the frontier scenario spun out of Tel Aviv. Rah-rah, Israel. Your papers, television, radio - every thing, includmg your Christian theologians - 1,000 per cent for the Moses people." And your Arab-country crit- Pope mentions celibacy issue Priests told not to fear ROME (AP) - Pope Paul tdd Roman priests recently not to fear the current questionmg of the priest's role and said this could turn out to be good for the Roman Catholic Church.

"Christ wwjted to be bom of a virgin," he said- "Does not this attachnient to the immaculate say something about our choice of an ecclesiastical state? Something which must not be repressed, but exalted, transfigured, strengthened by cur sacred ceJi-bacy?" The rule of mandatory celibacy for priests of the Latin, or West^, rite and other aspects of clerical life are currently un-dergodng studies in the Vatican and elsewhere and are to be discussed at next atitunm's third world synod of bishqw. OPTIONAL CELEBACY TORONTO (CP) - Optional celibacy for priests received a vote of support here by the Central Conference of Priests, representing EngUsh - speaking priests in Ontario and Quebec. After voting in favor of the option, the conference said it will urge delegates to the 1971 Vatican Synod to present theur recommendaticms. The conference proposed that persons already married and of mature age be permitted to jom the priesthood and that married priests be allowed to contmae theur role in the priesthood. Rev. Eugene Schallert, a United States priest and sociologist, told the conference, however, that celibacy was not the main reason for priests leaving the church. He predicted that in the next five years 70,000 priests will leave the church. He said 10,000 left between 1965 and 1970. He said priests leave because they feel "bound up by too much legalism and a feeling of suffocation." West dioceses publish pilot edition of paper WINNIPEG (CP) - The four western Canada dioceses of the Roman OathoUc Church have published a pilot edition of what they hope will become a new weekly newspaper for western Canada. The dioceses of Wmnipeg, Calgary, Edmonton and Vancouver, published the 20-page edition last Sunday "to debermine the viability of the paper." It has a separate name in each diocese, and is called the Manitoba (Catholic Reporter m Mani-tba. The cost is bemg shared by the four dioceses and the paper is published through facilities of the Western Catholic Reporter. The first edition Includes a quest ionnaire to determine i-eader response. Hugh Delaney of Winnipeg said the paper will begin publishing regularly in September if the response is favorable. CENTRAl CHURCH OF CHRIST 425 nth St. S. Mr. D. AAoisey, Organist J. R.

And whether this be Beirut or Cairo, Suiai or Suez, you must respond to this charge before the coffee is served. Yes, America is very mter-ested and concerned about Is^ rael. It supported with excitement and vigor the creation of the Jewish state. America loves the Holy Land because it cherishes the CSiristlan story. The land of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, the countryside of Bethlehem, the Mount of bUves ^ the place where Jesus healed and hoped and loved and preached - this is the most powerful factor operating hi the reUgious consciousness of be-lievuig people. Not everybody, not all in the same mtensity and affection, but many millions are included and their love for Israel is enormous. But (hat love is never at the expense of fahTiess nor offered at the dismissal of justice. Governments always have their devious games biit the abiding spirit of the population of America and the conscience of the Christian CJhurch is fuially pro-humanity. Recent events underline this answer to the major Arab coni-plaint: The Jerusalem Housing Scheme to put up public hous-mg in the old City (and to displace and discourage the Arab presence) has been met with a barrage of criticism in the American press. The New York Tunes led this charge with front page stories and scathing editorials. The Jewish Defense League has been regularly and roundly put down by mass media in the United States. Offensive, belligerent behavior is not approved and has generated substantial resentment - in the Jewish community, as well as in the public at large. Martin Buber, the disthiguish-ed philosopher and theologian, is easily the most widely read sdiolar in the Christian seminaries - the bridgeman for Jewish - Christian dialogue. Yet before his death in 1965, he was the leading critic in Israel of the military wing of Zionism and spoke constanUy of A r a b-Jewish compromise and accommodation. On Jan. 31, 1971, the New York Times published this letter from a Jewish writer - the same day I was at a recepiton in Cairo: "There is no justification in prophetic Judaism or Anglo-American concepts of democracy for the refusal of Israel to r^atriate the Palestme refugees. It is shocking to my sensibilities that I, a Jew, born and raised in America with all its advantages, and never having set foot in Palestine, should have the privilege of Israeli citizenship ... when the refugee who \;as bom there cannot return to his home. Furthermore, the expropriation of huge tracts of land and the dislocation of Arab villagers for Uie sole bens-fit of Jewish immigrants are actions sadly reminiscent of the legal discrimination suffered by Jewish minorities throughout history." (Signed) Bruce J. Cbasen, Brixton, Mass. What the Arabs may have forgotten is that some of their best friends are Jews. (Newspaper Enterprise Assn.)
