Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 8, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta y, Stpltmbtr I, 1971 THE inHBDIDCE HtMlB 39 War continues in Gaza Strip GAZA STRIP (AP) The ceasefire on Lbe Suez front has gone on a year, but war contin- ues in the Gaza Strip between Israeli and Arab. It involves camps crowded v.'ith Palestinean refugees in this coastal rectangle adjoining Israel and the Sinai. Grenades are often thrown at Israeli army personnel, and there arc frequent murders of so-called w h o in any way co-operate with the oc- cupying Israelis. This year au- thorities have counted 03 such murders in the Gaza Strip, nearly half of them in the Jaba- liya refugee camp. "The hunt o[ the hablanim goes on all the says a swarthy corporal of 21. But for his uniform and sub-machine- gun he Icjokr like the Arab in- habitants of Jabaliya camp, an enclave of s'mcrs, muddy lanes and vj Wj people "Hablanim" is Hebrew (or guerrillas, fe- dayeen, terrorist1; or freedom fighters, depending on one's sympathies, The singualr' of the word is "liablan." j The Israelis say they have! killed 44 guerrillas and captured more than 100 this year. REQUIRES CAUTION1 Tile corporal says: "You have to think of a dozen things before you go after them. Are you covered? Are you out of the hablan's line of fire? Can you throw a grenade, or are there civilians Another soldier admits that innocent Arabs may be killed or injured in the fighting. "We have orders to fire in the direction of the attacker. It's the only way, otherwise the hah- lanim would always attack us from (lie crow d s. and we wouldn't be able to do a thing. If you stop the halftrack and start running after him, you ha- ven't got much chance of catch- ing him, in a pacel like this." Tlie Israelis have seen the problem grow in the four years since Ihev caplured the Gaza Strip' In July they started mov- ing Jabaliya families to new habitation, bulldozed old homes into nibble and built new as- phalt security pur- their stead. In all, the Israelis plan to resettle a third of the strip's refugees. Arab states have complained bitterly, calling it expulsion, but the bulldozers work on inexora- bly. So does tho 1A hours a day. Lines of troops creep through orange groves, hoping to flush out guerrillas. If a guerrilla is caught, Ihe grove is uprooted. If il is proved that the owner knew his orchard was being used as a hideout, he will receive no com-' pensalion. Arab kids hang alwut at every j comer of the camp, making rude gestures at the troops. An officer is asked about Arab claims that camp resi- dents are brutally treated. "There's not much point in being he says. "But we arc firm. That's the best word, I think. No nonsense. "If we see somebody in the street after curfew has we fire one burst into the air. If! he doesn't stop, we slioot at him. i "Sometimes we catch a hab- lan. We knoy his comrades are somewhere in the area. If he won't tell us where, we might slap or kick him..It's all that's! refjuired, usually. "Don't forget, what's happen- ing in the camps is a war We have to win it. And anyway, there have been 40 murders in Jabaliya alone this year. Collab- orators, they call them. "What's collaborating? Work- ing in Israel for better wages? Sometimes women and children get murdered. What have they done to deserve it? "Once they put a bomb in a post office, scheduled to explode the first of the month, when hundreds o[ Arabs come to cash their pay cheques. Sixty-one Arabs were wounded.

That's the posilion Canada is in economically because of its close geographical and trade lies >vith the United States. So when the U.S- look its stringent measures a few weeks ago to bolster its sagging economy and troubled dollar, Canada was bound to feel the results. But some good can be found in aii bad news and there are those who argre thai one bene- fit from this situation will be that A will force Canada to look more closely at the nature of ils own economy. Canada is in the unique posi- tion of being a developed in- dustrial country, but operating outside any formal trading bloc. Sonic observers see a recent worldwide trend toward more trade protectionism and this, coupled with strong trading alli- ances such as the European Common Market, could pose a serous dilemma for Canada. The. question is whether Can- ada will be able to continue op- erating on its own or, whether it restricted? Perhaps of being Canadian' would be better paid in some other way; perhaps tlie money saved .'is a consequence of free trade could be spent on more effective defences of Canada in- dependence than is provided by the import tariff." Dr- Herman Overgaard of Waterloo Lutherai an expert on international mar- keting, is one of those who see some good in the U.S. surcharge i on imports. "The surcharge, possibly sig-, nailing a move toward new American isolationism, really could be a good thing: Opening the eyes of Canadian companies to tlie tremendoi's challenges and opportunities lying in mar- kets in countries otJier than our heiglibcr." "Fifty-two per cent of the goods produced in Canada last; year went into export. We're going to be badly hurt un- less stop throwing our hands in the air and realize that other opportunities are knocking at our door.1' Dr. Overgaard said Canada should be stressing Ihc Common Market countries, Eastern Eu- will be forced into some trading China as marketing partnership. If the latter, with j areas. "Canada should be leaping whom? Or is free trade the an- swer? Moving to an entirely free all bar- riers such as tariff and oilier import not be without its resulling prob- lems. The Private Planning Assucia- forward as Japan leapt forward, by developing export relation- ships with all these markets."
