Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 30, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Countries break relations Tuesday, October LETHBRIDGE HERALO-11 Israel diplomacy hurt by war By ARTHUR MAX JERUSALEM (AP) Is- rael's intricately woven network of international relations has been badly shredded by the Middle East war. In Africa, where Israel was once solidly entrenched as a great friend of the emerging independent states, only eight black-ruled countries main- tain diplomatic relations with the Jewish state. In Europe, relations with some countries have come un- der a severe strain for what Israel calls neutrality in favor of the oil rich Arabs during the latest war. And at home, opposition parties have issued strong at- tacks against the Israeli government for allegedly not preparing for the war and for accepting a ceasefire before Aab armies were destroyed. Among the problems in Eu- rope, only the barest formali- ty of diplomatic ties still re- Beat rain Two young boys rode a donkey in this fashion and used an umbrella as pro- tection against the ele- ments during the rainy season in Bogota, Col- ombia, recently. main with France. Israel charged that Paris should have cancelled its contract to supply Libya with Mirage jet fighter planes after these planes allegedly flew missions in the war. STOPPED SUPPLIES Israelis also were bitter to- ward Britain, which imposed an arms embargo on the com- batants, stopping the supply of spare parts for Centurion tanks. The move had no effect on the weapons flow to Arab countries not directly involved on the battlefield, Israel said. West Germany, declaring it- self neutral, ordered the halt of the American supply of weapons to Israel through West German territory. But it was in Africa that the Israelis were stung the worst. "There is no question that we have suffered setbacks in Africa during the said an Israeli official who declin- ed to be named. "We sincerely regret this, but right now we have more important things to think about than who likes us and who doesn't." Nine black African countries have severed ties since the latest war began. The Arab states "have con- sistently sought a peaceful and just solution to the Middle East said a spokesman in Zambia, which broke ties with Israel on Thur- sday, apparently branding Israel as the aggressor in the latest war. CHARGE 'BAD FAITH' Israel is guilty of "bad said an official in Nigeria, which also ended its association with the Jewish state Thursday. Multi-cultural curriculum EDMONTON (CP) The Northwest Territories is developing its own multi cultural curriculum involving the skills of native people, says Paul Robinson, chief of program development for the Territorial government's education department. He told an inter cultural conference sponsored by the Alberta Teachers' Association during the weekend that northern schools use an alphabet book written by an Eskimo woman with a Grade six education. An Eskimo man was draw- ing books of illustrations, and completed one called "things you won't see" including an ice breaking Kayak. Older Eskimos and Indians make toys of various artifacts and photograph hunts to each various northern cultural groups about each other, said Mr. Robinson. The curriculum places great stress on local cultures and tries to avoid the middle class standards and values which dominate classrooms elsewhere, he said. Instruction was begun in a child's native language with English added later as a secondary language. These countries joined Eth- iopia. Tanzania, Gambia, the Central African Republic, Ghana, Madagascar and Cam- eroon and 13 other African countries which severed rela- tions before the war. Senegal said it has "frozen" relations until after the war. "The Arab states have been putting a lot of pressure on the said another Israeli official. "And with all that oil revenue they have a lot of power. The war, in fact, has had no effect. It was just used as an excuse. We can't compete with Libyan money. Some of these countries once considered Israel their best friend for providing the practical assistance they needed rather than the han- douts of bigger, richer countries. Half of Israel's foreign aid budget of million was ear- marked for Africa last year, and black students were com- mon on the streets of Tel Aviv or the fields of a kibbutz. The foreign ministry says it intends to maintain its aid programs in the few countries left. Israeli emissaries remain in Liberia, Ivory Coast. Sierra Leone, Kenya. Botswana, Les- otho. Swaziland and Senegal and in white-controlled South Africa. RETURNS TO THE FOR THEIR NEW 1974 MODELS thru DEMO AND NEW Direct line to the Pavilion 327-8032 or 327-1164 ;
