Spirit of
America

The meaning of our word
"America" flows from one
pure source. Within the soul
of America is the freedom of
mind and spirit of man.
Here alone are the open
windows through which
pours the sunlight of the hu-
man spirit..Here alone hu-
man dignity is not a dream
but a major accomplish-
ment. —Herbert Hoover

Nazi anti-Semitism
was influenced by the
writings of Abraham A
Scanta Clara, Augusti-
nian friar and anti-
Jewish propagandist,
who was court preacher
in Vienna in the late 17th
Century.

WASHINGTON (JTA)
— The Bnai Brith Anti-
Defamation League dis-
closed last Thursday that
two separate coalitions
have organized parallel
campaigns to block legis-
lation introduced in Con-
gress last week against
the compliance of Ameri-
can companies in the
Arab boycott of Israel.
According to the ADL,
one of the coalitions rep-
resents large and re-
spectable firms within
the American business
establishments and the
other is a potpourri of
Arab-American organi-
zations and extremists
with records of anti-
Semitism.
Arnold Forster, gen-
eral counsel of the ADL,
who headed the investi-
gation which led to the
disclosures, said at a
press conference that
while there is no evidence
of direct interaction be-
tween the two coalitions,
they use the same argu-
ments and have the
mutual goal of prevent-
ing passage of effective
U.S. legislation against
Arab boycott operations
in this country.

funded by the Depart-
ment of Health, Educa-
tion and Welfare.
Joseph said the ADL
did not know the source of
FEATT's income.

In addition to Forster,
Joseph was joined at the
press conference by Ben-
jamin R. Epstein, national
director of the ADL and
Maxwell E. Greenberg,
chairman of its national
executive committee.

The ADL report
pointed out that major oil
companies, heavy equip-
ment manufacturers and
construction and en-
gineering firms with
large stakes in the
multi-billion dollar Arab
market stepped up their
advertising and public re-
lations campaigns last
summer and early fall
aimed at thwarting anti-
boycott legislation.
This occurred after the
passage of Senate and
House bills by substantial
majorities. A strong lob-
bying effort began during
the closing weeks of the
94th Congress in Sep-
tember when it appeared

According to the ADL
report, the NAM, the U.S.

tions for approval by the
three organizations before

The ADL said the prop-
osals are being coordi-
nated and the coalition is
expected to go beyond its
own constituencies to
seek support from small
and medium sized busi-
nesses, organized labor
and employe groups.
The campaigns now
being mounted "will be
the most extensive yet
seen," the ADL leaders
said.

Benjamin R. Epstein,
national director of the
ADL announced last
Thursday that the ADL
and the Business Round-
table, an organization
made up of the chief
executives of 170 major
American corporations,
will conduct a joint meet-
ing next Friday--in
Chicago for the purpose of
exchanging views on ef-,-)
forts to reach a mutual 1
accommodation with re-
spect to Arab boycott–is-
sues.

The meeting wily-- de
chaired jointly by Irving S.
Shapiro, chairman of the
board of the Du Pont Com-
pany, who is chairman of
the Business Roundtable,
and Burton M. Joseph, na-
tional chairman of the
league and president of

Commission Reveals Canadian
Firms Complying With Boycott

OTTAWA (JTA)
Eight major Canadian
firms were identified last
Thursday as among a
larger number of Cana-
dian businesses that
comply with the Arab
boycott of Israel.
The Commission on
Economic Coercion and
Discrimination, headed
by Profk Irwin Cotler of
McGill University,
ported that it found "a
pattern of compliance
and complicity with the
Arab boycott in both the
public and private sec-
tors."
It also identified seven
types of boycott clauses
found in boycott-related
documents including
some reflecting religious
discrimination.

through its agencies and
officials, has acquiesced
and facilitated the appli-
cation of the Arab boycott
in Canada.
The Commission said,
however, that it was
"heartened and encour-
aged by the government's
statement of policy on
Oct. 21, 1976 as an impor-
tant first step" against
boycott compliance.
But, the report added,
"unless- this policy is but-
ressed by legislation pro-
hibiting compliance and
by the administrative di-
rectives of a specific
character, the policy it-
self stands to be un-
dermined."

Cotler said that without
legislation "we are in
danger of creating two

Israel Accused by Red Cross
of Force-Feeding Its Prisoners

TEL AVIV — The In-
ternational Red Cross
has accused Israel of
force-feeding Arab
hunger strikers protest-
ing conditions in Israeli
prisons.
The Red Cross said 370
prisoners serving long
jail terms, some of them
life sentences at Ashke-
lon Prison, have been on a
hunger strike since Dec.
10.



Prison authorities give
the strikers a liquid diet of
eggs, protein and sugar
and "those who do not take
it voluntarily are force-
fed," a Red Cross official

said.

Meanwhile, Israe
cials denied reports .L.Lom
Jordan that one Arab
prisoner died as a result
of the strike and others-
were seriously ill.

bile, designed and man-=
ufactured by Merkavim, a
member of the Koor met- ;---
als division, is already on
the roads, serving out-of- -,

neighborhoods in Israel.
