K met a to 7it�?~. Seq so amp Ehi Al of if a Quot it a Quot these Days by John Chamberlain irony North of the Border i Hope the irony is not lost on prime minister Pierre Elliott Trudeau of Canada. It was a matter of Days before the Ottawa govern i Nentis recognition of red China that the extremist front for the liberation of Quebec pursuing maoist guerrilla tactics seized a British Diplomat and kidnapped and killed Pierre Laporte the Quebec minister of labor. The Canadian government broke the american front when it countenanced easy dealings with revolutionary Cuba and it is now working at Cross purposes with established . Policy by its efforts to seat red China in the . For their plans in trying to make Castro and Mao tse Tung respectable in the eyes of the world the canadians Are learning that they Are not exempt from the terrorist tactics which maoists and cast Robes regard As Standard procedure in All wars of a National it does not matter whether the front for the liberation of Quebec has ties with Havana or not the Point is that maoism As a state of mind is spreading everywhere. \ too the Taiwan chinese always polite do not taunt prime minister Trudeau with any a i told you but they Are properly dismayed by what they consider to be the Canadian government s betrayal of its word. It was just As recently As May 18, 1968, that or. Mitchell Sharp the Canadian minister for external affairs was saying a we wont sacrifice our relations with the government on Taiwan to do it a the a a it being recognition of peking. In March of 1968 Pierre Trudeau not yet the prime minister was quoted As saying that he recognize red China if it involved breaking with Taiwan. Later on in the year when he wobbled and waffled on the subject of a Deal with peking lie said a your concern is that the government of Taiwan not be disregarded in the a a o so much for Good intentions. The Point is that just about a month after Michel Beaubien the spokesman for the Canadian delegation to the 25th session of the in general Assembly had denied that Canada and red China had a successfully completed negotiations for exchanging ambassadors the recognition has become a fait a comply. And it has very definitely a involved breaking with this has fired up the Emula Tive propensities of sen. Jacob javits of new York who wants to see the . Abandon its opposition to bringing the maoists to the House of Glass on new Yorkus East River. Javits who is very much worried about the guerrilla threat to Israel must be aware that George a Bash the Leader of the Arab popular front for the liberation of Palestine is a marxist with maoist ties. Habash keeps pictures of Mao and North Vietnam a general Giap on his office Wall yet with his neatly compartmentalized Way of looking at the world sen. Javits can to see that encouragement of peking must encourage All the revolutionists in the world who follow the guerrilla precepts that have been urged on a a liberation movements everywhere by red China a Lin Piao and by Mao tse Tung himself. Too will the . Cave in and withdraw its opposition to the seating of red China in the unit could hardly come about at once if Only for the cynical reason that Washington is not yet ready to take one Side or the other in the struggle that is now going on Between Moscow and peking for control of the world common just movement. It is no secret in the corridors at the in that the russian communists though they give lip service to the idea of admitting red China to the in do not really want to see Mao tse Tung get a world forum by sending a delegation to new York. The russian communists would Call it an unfriendly act if the . Were to follow the example of Canada and shifts its vote. The ., of course has Given its word to the Taiwan chinese that their right to Rule in their own Island will not be compromised by anything we May choose to do. But words Arentt Worth much when they go against interests. Quite aside from questions of Honor Washington wont sell Taiwan Down the River until it is ready to Side with Mao tse Tung in his quarrel with Moscow. That Day wont come unless we have an open rupture with Moscow or Berlin or the Middle East.
