Boycott Trends

There is one big firm in the world today which is beginning
to realize that yielding to Arab boycott pressure against Israel
does not pay . .. It is the Regie Renault automobile manufactur-
ing firm in France which cancelled its agreement with Israel,
taking the Arab boycott threats seriously and expecting to make
up for the loss of the Israel market by selling more cars to
Arab countries . . . The net result: not only does the firm not
sell now more cars to Arab countries, but it also has lost markets
in countries where there is a strong sentiment for Israel among
car buyers . . . As a result of this "stagnation of export"—which
the Renault management now admits—the company is going to
cut production to 1,600 Dauphines a day as compared with the
2,000 cars it produced daily before abandoning Israel . . . This,
it is reported from Paris, has brought about a reduction in the
working week of' the company's employees . . . The 30,000
Renault workers will henceforth be working 45 hours per week
instead of 48 . . . Their wages will be reduced by three percent
. . In 1959 Renault exports were 70 percent more than in the
previous year . . . This trend has not continued in 1960, after
the firm yielded to the Arab boycott against Israel . .. On the
other hand, the business of other French automobile firms—like
Citroen and Simca—which ignore Arab threats, seems to be
normal, since they are not contemplating any reductions in their
working hours . . . The moral is — yielding to Arab boycott pres-
sure against Israel may sometimes backfire and become a costly
experience for any enterprise.

The Anti Semitic Front

-

Few are aware that Rockwell's small group is only one of
about 40 anti-Semitic groups which conduct anti-Jewish propa-
ganda in the United States . . . More than 30 of them have
their own hate publications . . . The reason they are less known
than Rockwell is because they are being ignored . . . So was
Rockwell and his handful of followers for about three years
until he gained notoriety by daring to proclaim himself as head
of a so-called "American Nazi Party," years after the Na
party in Germany had been outlawed . . . Earlier, he used
variety of names for his outfit . . . They included "National C
mittee to Free America from Jewish Domination" and "Am
can Party, World Union of Free Enterprises National Socialis
. . . His diatribes against Jews are considered more extre
than those of any American anti-Semite . . . Jewish organization
combatting anti-Semitism are watching the activities not only
of Rockwell but also of other anti-Jewish groups in this country
. • . The Jewish War Veterans is under fire for adopting a reso-
lution at its convention last month in Miami demanding the
enactment of a Federal group libel law to check anti-Jewish
defamation . . . Practically all other national Jewish organiza-
tions engaged in fighting anti-Semitism are opposed to such a
law . . They give many valid reasons for objecting to group
libel legislation . . . At the biennial convention of the American
Jewish Congress, there were some who demanded that the or-
ganization reconsider its opposition to a Federal group libel
law, but the convention decided not to alter its attitude and
reaffirmed its opposition to such legislation . . . The American
Jewish 'Committee has b t group libel legislation ever
since the iss

by 11 per cent.

Israel High Court
Renews Hearing on
Election of Rabbis

JERUSALEM, (JTA) — The
Supreme Court set Sept. 25 as

Council had
origi amed four members
to the nominations board, while
the government had named an
equal number. The Council con-
tends now that the present
nominations board is not valid,
since it has only five members.
It is that point which the five-
man panel must decide after
the Sept. 25 hearing.
Gideon Hausner, Israel's At-
torney G e n e r a 1, who had
charged at a hearing before the
Supreme Court that official
documents of the Rabbinate
Council related to the dispute
over the elections of new Chief
Rabbis had been falsified, de-
clared meanwhile that he did
not use the word "falsified" and
that he merely said that the
protocols of one of the meetings
did not convey exactly what had
taken place at that meeting.
The Attorney General made
this statement following a re-
quest for retraction by Chief
Rabbi Nissim.
