Agnew Charged With Pleading Arab 'Right'
to Demand U.S. Business Boycott Compliance

AND

KEEP THE MAN IN YOUR LIFE WARM
WITH THE FINEST IN OUTER WEAR!

NEW YORK — The
Anti-Defamation League
of Bnai Brith charged
that Spiro Agnew is now
pleading "the Arabs'
right to demand Ameri-
can business compliance
in their anti-Israel
boycott." Furthermore,
ADL said, he justifies his
position "by parroting
the Arab propaganda
claim that Israel has
`seized, occupied and is
now in the process of col-
onizing their lands.' "
According to Arnold
Forster, ADL's associate
director and general
counsel, "Agnew's latest
promotion of the Arab
cause" is a major thrust
of the second and most re-
cent issue of
"Memoranda," official
publication of Education
For Democracy, the tax
exempt foundation he
heads.
"The former Vice Pres-
ident's attempt to
legitimatize Arab intru-
sion in this country's free
enterprise system," Fors-

from Arab buyers that re-
quire certificates of com-
pliance with boycott regu-
lations as a condition of

campaign are J.P. Morgan

tional Corp. and six other
financial institutions.
For the first time, pen-

ter said, "even goes as far
as including attacks on
President-Elect Jimmy
Carter, the United States
Congress and American
Jews."
"Memoranda" calls Car-
ter and members of Con-
gress "political oppor-
tunists" for denouncing
the Arab boycott operation
in the U.S. and says they
have yielded to "the
American Zionist
machine."
Forster pointed out
that the former Vice Pres-
ident "has been prospect-
ing. for Arab petrodollars
through his consulting
firm, Pathlite, Inc." He
cited Agnew's travels to
Kuwait, Saudi Arabia,
Lebanon and Jordan and
his meeting in
Washington with the
Saudi Arabian oil minis-
ter, Zaki Yamani, about
doing business with that
country.
Meanwhile, 52 major
U.S. corporations have
agreed in writing to resist
Arab boycott demands in
response to an American
Jewish Congress-
sponsored shareholder
campaign, the organiza-
tion reported.
Among the corpora-
tions that have given
written pledges to the
Congress in opposition to
various phases of the
Arab boycott, he said,
were Borden, Control
Data, Eastman Kodak,
Ford, National Can,

WASHINGTON, (JTA)
— Sen. Abraham Ribicoff
(D.-Conn.) has accused
the U.S. Treasury De-
partment of having both
"failed to implement" and
"seriously undermined"
the anti-Arab boycott
provisions of the Tax Re-
form Act of 1976.
Ribicoff was the princi-
pal author of the legisla-
tion that prevents U.S.
firms from receiving tax
benefits related to their
overseas trade if the
firms participate in the
boycott.
The Treasury Depart-
ment on Nov. 4 issued
"proposed guidelines" in-
terpreting the anti-
boycott measures.
Ribicoff attacked the
guidelines in a letter Dec.
7 to Treasury Secretary
William Simon. He sent a
copy to President Ford.
The guidelines provide
information on how
American companies can
participate in the boycott
and, at the same time, con-
tinue to take the tax be-
nefits, Ribicoff charged.
He said the guidelines
"are an affront to the Con-
gress, the President and
his Administration, and a
disservice to the Treasury
Department."
Sen. Ribicoff's criticism
closely paralleled that
submitted by Washington
attorney Paul Berger, on
behalf of the National
Jewish Community Rela-

SEN. RIBICOFF

tions Advisory Council.
Berger had earlier, on as-
signment by the NJCRAC
Israel Task Force, sub-
mitted recommendations
to the Treasury Depart-
ment for its guidance in
drawing up regulations
for enforcement of the
amendment.
- "The
guidelines,"
Berger wrote in a letter
transmitting his com-
ments, "would appear to
countenance the chief
methods now being used
to effectuate the
boycott." Beyond that, he
wrote, "the guidelines
appear to be purposefully
structured to guide tax-
payers on how to formu-
late their agreements in
the future so that they
may continue to partici-
pate in the boycott with-
out losing their tax be-
nefits."

Rep. Benjamin Rosent-
hal (D.-NY) said.
In a related develop-
ment, Massachusetts
Governor Michael
Dukakis acted to ensure
that Massachusetts'
state government will in
no way support the Arab
business boycott.
Appearing before a
meeting of the American
Jewish Congress,
Dukakis became the first _
governor in the nation t ,
sign an executive ordei
which requires busines-
ses contracting with the
state to agree not to par-
ticipate in or cooperate
with international
boycotts conducted on the
basis of color, creed, relig-
ion, or national origin.
The executive order
specifies that any firm
contracting with the
state after Jan. 1, 1977 for
an amount of $5,000 or
more must agree not to
participate in an interna-
tional boycott. The order
gives the state the right
to cancel the contract if
the company violates
that agreement.

Anti-Zionists
Gain in Baghdad

LONDON (JTA) — De-
spite scanty coverage in
the world press, a recent
Baghdad international
conference is another
step on the road to giving
anti-Zionism intellectual
respectability.
This is the conclusion of
a report by the Institute
of Jewish Affairs on an
"Ideological Symposium
on Zionism as a Racist
Phenomenon" held in the
Iraqi capital Nov. 8-13
under the auspices of the
Center for Palestinian
Studies at the University
of Baghdad, the Palestine
Liberation Organization
and the Arab League.
The gathering was at-
tended by 300 delegates
from 46 countries, includ-
ing Britain, France and
the United States as well
as the Soviet Union,
Eastern bloc and Third
World countries.
An Iraqi news agency
reported that the sym-
posium's proceedings will
eventually be published
and widely disseminated.
It added the symposium
was marked by a deep
academic spirit.

Grade's 'Yeshiva'
Translation Due

An English translation
of "The Yeshiva" b:
Chaim Grade will be pub-
lished by Bobbs-Merrill
Co. on Jan. 27.
In a translation from
the Yiddish by Curt
Leviant, the novel is a
tale of Jewish life in East
European towns and vil-
lages between the two
world wars. "The
Yeshiva" is the story of
Tsemakh Atlas, a
member of the Musar sect
of strict ethical conduct.
It tells of Tsemakh's
struggle to renounce his
non-observant but beaut-
iful and wealthy wife and
of his efforts to found his
ownyeshiva.
