The House International
Relations Committee unani-
mously voted a resolution
last week calling on Presi-
dent Ford not to make any
new U.S. aid commitments
to any nation that voted for
the United Nations resolu-
tion equating Zionism with
racism, "or for similar mea-
sures" pending full-scale
review by the Congress of
U.S. military and economic
assistance to 7 - ' 10 tons.
The committee's resolu-
tion also asked Ford to iden-
tify those UN programs
which no longer may be
compatible with U.S. princi-
ples and interests and sub-
mit them to Congress
within 90 days.
Under the foreign aid bill

now before Congress, the
Administration has asked
funds for Bahrain, Brazil,
Cyprus, Egypt, Indonesia,
Jordan, Malta, Portugal,
Syria and Turkey, all of
which voted for the anti-
Zionist resolution.

The Bnai Brith Women

Board, meeting in Washing-
ton, D.C., also deplored the
UN resolution.
In a letter to The Jewish
News, author-journalist
Robert St. John, said;
"This is a sad week for all
of us. The passage of the
Anti-Zionist Resolution,
even though by a reduced
vote, shows the depth of the
immorality of the age i
which we live.

The President hailed the
