taking into account the legitimate interests of

that the U.S. will neither recognize nor deal with the
Palestine Liberation Organization until this terrorist
group first recognizes Israel's right to exist. However,
he affirmed that Palestinian "interests" will have to
be taken into account in a final settlement.
The weakest spot into which President Ford put
himself in the eyes ofJewish voters was in making his
order on dealing with the Arab anti-Jewish boycott in
this country "prospective" after Oct. 7. Only an eve-
ning before, he gave the definite impression in his
television appearance that -the order would be retroac-
tive. By changing his mind, he actually permitted
some large American banking, shopping and indus-
trial firms to apply the Arab boycott against American
Jews and Israel. These firms have been dealing with
Arab countries before Oct. 7, yielding to the Arab
boycott stipulations for more than two years.
President Ford tried to explain his own confusion
at a meeting with Jewish editors in the White House by
stating that he could not change the rules in the mid-
dle of the game. This explanation was not convincing.
CARTER'S PLEDGES: In contrast to Ford, Gov.
Carter has no long-standing record on issues in which
Jewish voters are specifically interested. He has not
served in Congress, and consequently has not voted on
specific Middle East questions. But during his current
campaign he voiced support for Israel and pledged to
provide "whatever economic and military aid neces-
sary to permit Israel to defend itself against any
foreseeable attack."
He was, however, critical of the letter sent by 76
Senators to President Ford last May on the Adminis-
tration's "reassessment" of its Middle East policy. He
said publicly that he would not have signed that letter
if he had been in the Senate. Later he said he was
