In "Cold Terror," author Stewart Bell documents how Canada's top leaders long have denied or ignored the pres- ence of hundreds of terrorist operatives in Canada, despite repeatedwarnings from CSIS, the nation's security and in- telligence service. Among various unrealized criminal schemes, Canadian- based terrorists have plotted to assassinate a visiting Israeli dignitary, bring down an El AI aircraft over Canadian airspace and bomb a Jewish neighbor- hood in Montreal. They also have helped organize suicide bombings in Israel, according toBell, a reporter for the Na- tional Post newspaper. "Over the years, the only organization that has really kept track of this issue and organized any effective lobby- ing to political leade rs has been the Jewish community," he said, explaining why he chose to launch his book at a Toronto synagogue. In the book, as in countless journalistic articles, the 38- year-old Bell has probed the shadowy world and deeds of local representatives of vari- ous international terrorist or- ganizations, including Hezbollah, Hamas, AI-Qaida and other groups that target Americans and Jews. Expert at prying loose secu- rity-related secrets through freedom of information legis- lation, Bell has amassed what may be the largest private col- lection of classified intelli- gence documents in the coun- try. Even a writer at the rival Globe and Mail newspaper has called Bell "Canada's leading reporter on national security and terrorism." "I hope his book is going to cause an earth- quake among people and make them think," said Martin Rudner, director of the Cana- dian Centre of Intelligence and Security Studies at Carleton University in Ottawa. "He re- ally brings the information home." One of the nefarious figures highlighted in "Cold Terror" is Fauzi Ayub, a Leba- nese-born father of three from Toronto who was arrested in Israel two years ago for plot- ting terrorist attacks with Hezbollah. Though he had been impli- cated in an assassination plot against the Israeli prime min- ister, Ayub was one of several hundred prisoners released last January in an exchange with Hezbollah for a captured Israeli businessman and the bodies of three Israeli soldiers. Ayub is still in Lebanon, but Canadian consular officials say he hopes to return to Canada, Bell said. As in the case of Ayub, Ca- nadian border officials failed to stop Mahmoud Mohammed lssa Mohammad from enter- ing Canada in 1987.
