James GRAFF, Teacher And Activist (1937-2005)
Philosophy professor was an ardent advocate of Palestinian rights who believed in putting his teachings into action
By Ron CSILLAG, Special to The Globe and Mail, Monday, November 28, 2005, Page S11
Toronto -- James GRAFF died as he had lived: Uncompromisingly. Asked whether he wanted to be resuscitated following surgery last month for an old tumour that had turned malignant, he queried the doctor, "Resuscitated to what?" He would rather die, he averred, than do anything but live at full throttle.
A professor of moral and political philosophy at the University of Toronto's Victoria College for 40 years, Prof. GRAFF believed in putting his teachings into action. A passionate and tireless advocate of Palestinian rights, he poured most of his energy into public awareness and alleviation of the plight of Palestinian children living under Israeli occupation and in the Arab world.
Whether that was popular did not faze him, apparently. Once, in the early 1980s, he found a note that had been slipped under his door, threatening to blast him into "orbit." He shrugged it off in his typical even-keeled fashion, and Friends indulged his rather dark sense of humour by presenting him with a coffee mug bearing an image of the space shuttle Columbia.
His last task was helping to organize a three-day conference on "morally responsible investment" in Israel, held in Toronto last month, and denounced widely by Jews and Christians for ignoring Palestinian violence and engaging in not-so subtle Israel-bashing.
While Prof. GRAFF did use trenchant (but not anti-Semitic) language to describe Israel's treatment of Palestinians and other Arabs, he also criticized the Palestinian Authority's record on human rights -- at a cost to the movement that may never be known.
In 1984, he set up and led the Near East Cultural and Educational Foundation of Canada, a volunteer group with charitable status that sought to broaden Canadians' understanding of the Middle East and to provide aid in the region.
From 1986 to 1996, Prof. GRAFF represented Near East Cultural and Educational Foundation on the North American Co-ordinating Committee for Non-governmental Organizations on the Question of Palestine, a body he vice-chaired and which met regularly at United Nations headquarters in New York (except for two meetings in Canada that he initiated, one in Montreal in 1990 and one in Toronto in 1994).
According to Reverend Robert ASSALY, an Anglican priest in Ottawa who regarded Prof. GRAFF as a mentor and served with him on the North American Co-ordinating Committee, concerns about how Palestinians were treating their own began to stir among non-governmental organizations around the time of the Oslo peace accord in 1993. "Jim hated [violence]," Reverend ASSALY recalled. "Not only did he speak out against the violence, he spoke out against the violent. He and I kind of got the whole Non-governmental Organization movement on the Question of Palestine tossed out of the United Nations for that."
Around 1994, when the Palestine Liberation Organization morphed into the Palestinian Authority, "we started going after them publicly at the United Nations on their human rights record," Rev. ASSALY recounted. "They fought us tooth and nail."
The Palestinian leadership tried to manipulate elections to the co-ordinating committee year after year, but the North Americans wouldn't bite. "As much as they tried, they couldn't take control. They wanted to silence us on the human rights record."
Prof. GRAFF quit as vice-chair of the committee after the 1995 conference, not out of frustration, but because of poor eyesight, a condition that began when he was 15 and ended with his being legally blind. In any event, by 1997, fed-up Palestinian diplomats at the United Nations dissolved their connections to Non-governmental Organizations working on the Question of Palestine, believing, for better or worse, they weren't needed any more.
Prof. GRAFF may have seen it coming. Four years earlier, he warned that Non-governmental Organizations faced "a crisis of direction" in how to act in a world following the first Gulf War. Before the war, it had seemed there would be a breakthrough in the Palestinian problem. Now, it didn't look so hopeful.
"It is not an overstatement to say simply that... Jim has been an icon in the authentic movement for peace and justice in the Middle East," Reverend ASSALY stated. "He modelled what, for me, was a staunchly principled position, always, on everything. Jim was, in the best sense, uncompromising."
Prof. GRAFF earned his undergraduate degree at Lafayette College in Easton, Pa., followed by a masters and doctorate both from Brown University in Rhode Island. He taught at Victoria College from 1963 until his official retirement in 2003, but was still teaching a fourth-year course on war and morality days before he died.
Friends and colleagues can't pinpoint a specific time or event that triggered his passion for Palestinians, but feel it could have been a sightseeing trip he took to Israel in the mid-1970s. He began a torrent of activity, forging alliances and Friendships with such thinkers as Noam Chomsky and Edward Said.
Over the years, the intifadas, the 9/11 attack and the Iraq war kept his pen and conscience busy. In 1993, and again in 1997, he wrote to Hillary Clinton, in the wake of the former U.S. first lady's vaunted book, It Takes a Village, offering a richly footnoted litany of atrocities that, he said, had been committed against Palestinian children by Israeli security forces, and reasons why Israeli offers of peace should be regarded with suspicion. "Maybe," he suggested, "you could sum all this up by saying: 'Bill, it takes a village, not a bantustan.' " Mrs. Clinton never replied.
James Allan GRAFF was born on June 30, 1937, in East Orange, N.J., and died in Toronto on October 23, 2005, of cancer. He leaves his wife, Aida, and two children. A memorial service will be held at the Victoria College chapel, University of Toronto, at 4 p.m. tomorrow.

Deadly two days on our roads
Total of four people die in collisions Monday morning and Sunday
By Bill HENRY, Tuesday, October 25, 2005, Page A1
Four people died in two highway collisions, one near Wiarton early Monday and another at Burgoyne Sunday.
The two unrelated collisions both involved three vehicles and happened at controlled intersections. Two people died in each.
Highway 6 was closed for several hours Monday morning as police diverted traffic around the intersection of Grey Road 17 where a farm tractor, pickup truck and a car were all involved in a collision that killed two people at about 6: 30 a.m., Bruce Peninsula Ontario Provincial Police said.
Steven McCARTNEY, 43, of Owen Sound, the driver of the truck, and his passenger Jeremy McCARTNEY, 27, of Hepworth, were both pronounced dead at the collision scene two kilometres south of Wiarton.
South Bruce Ontario Provincial Police spokesman Const. Dave MEYER said it was raining and still dark when the crash happened.
The farm tractor was travelling north along the side of the road. The pickup truck collided with the side of the tractor and came to a stop upside down in the northbound lane.
Soon after, a car heading north collided with the truck and ended up in the west ditch. The 19-year-old driver, of Ayton, was in serious condition in hospital and a passenger was also injured. Their names had not been released Monday evening because next of kin had to be notified, MEYER said.
The tractor driver was not injured.
At about 5 p.m. Sunday at Burgoyne, two Windsor women who were passengers in a Jaguar were killed and three other people injured when the Jag struck a truck and then a van at the junction of Bruce Road 17 and Bruce Road 3.
The pickup truck was heading east on Road 17 and did not completely stop at the intersection. It collided with the Jag heading south on Road 3, which then struck the van, Saugeen Shores Police said in a news release.
Both the pickup driver, Christopher LEE, and passenger Helena LEE of Brampton were uninjured.
The driver of the Jaguar, Marlene LANCASTER, 56, of Windsor, was taken to hospital in Owen Sound with non life-threatening injuries. One passenger, Leona ROBERTS, 77, of LaSalle, was pronounced dead at the scene. Another passenger, Flora ASSELTINE, 84, of Windsor was taken to hospital in Southampton and pronounced dead shortly after.
A nine-month-old infant in the van was in a car seat and was not injured.
Lisa COPPING, 24, of Paisley, the driver of the van, was treated for injuries at Chesley hospital.
A female passenger, Holly BARBE, 50, of Port Elgin was taken first to Chesley hospital, then airlifted to London with major but not life-threatening injuries.
The collision was still under investigation Monday and there were no charges.
