Commerce - with being a
"silent partner" in the Arab
boycott by refusing to make
public reports filed by
American companies of re-
quests to discriminate
against. U.S. firms that
trade with Israel.
The charge was made by
Naomi Levine of New York,
executive director of the
AJCongress, in a statement
accompanying the filing of a
brief in U.S. District Court
here by the American Jew-
ish. Congress in its suit
against Commerce Secre-
tary Elliott Richardson.
The suit was filed under
the Freedom of Information
Act last September and_

The Commerce Depart-

to dismiss the complaints
on the ground that the in-
formation sought was

In Philadelphia, two of

The National Commission
on Law Enforcement and..
Social Justice (NCLESJ) of
Detroit has begun circulat-
ing petitions in Michigan_
that call for state law en-
forcement agencies to end
any cooperative efforts with
INTERPOL, the interna-
tional police agency.
The group cites INTER-
POL's coverup of its Nazi
past and continued ties with
former Nazis, failure to pur-
sue Nazi criminals, and fail-
ure to pursue terrorists (See
The Jewish News, Sept.
5-Oct. 3, 1975).
The NCLESJ took part
id hearings in Massachu-
setts last week to deter-
mine whether police agen-
cies there should continue
to work with INTERPOL.
The NCLESJ has local
offices at 19 Clifford, room
505, in Detroit.

shareholders" of the com-
pany's "policy towards
compliance, tacit or overt,
with the demands of the
Arab boycott."

In New York, exporters,
apparently worried about
breaching a new state law
that makes aiding the Arab
boycott of Israel a misde-
meanor, are diverting cargo
destined for the Middle East
from New York City to
other ports.
The law, an amendment
to the state's human rights
Act, became effective Jan.
1. High costs also have
been cited as cause for di-
verting traffic to other
ports. However, the law,
called the "Lisa Law"
after Assemblyman Jo-
seph F. Lisa (D-Queens) is
apparently accelerating
that trend.
In- a related development,
the General Tire and Rub-
ber Co. of Akron, Ohio, said
it had paid $150,000 to an
Arab group to try to have
the firms' name removed
from an Arab boycott list.
The statement came in re-
sponse to a report by the
state Assembly Office of
Legislative Oversight and
Analysis saying "we believe-
we have located, through
this transaction': the myste-
rious procedure used by
some American business-
men to get off the Arab boy-
cott list:"
Meanwhile, Newsweek
magazine reported that

after more than a year of
negotiations, the U.S. has
finally won a concession
from Saudi Arabia on its
tightly restrictive visa policy
against American Jews.
Saudi rules have barred
entry to Jews even when
they were employed on joint
projects of the two coun-
tries. The Saudis now. have
agreed to issue visas to any-
one involved in such pro-
jects, regardless of his reli-
gion.
The Ford Administration,
in turn; has said it will not
seek legislation against the
Arab boycott of U.S. firms
doing business with Israel.
