anti-boycott legislation
now under discussion in
the U.S. Congress was
sharply condemned in
London by Frank Jun-
gers, chairman of
ARAMCO.
He told the Arab
London-based magazine
"Events" that "such laws
will not harm ARAMCO
or Saudi Arabia as much
as they will harm the Un-
ited States and its
economy."
Companies operating in
the Middle East, Jungers
continued in his inter-
view with the magazine,
"will shift their opera-
tions from the U.S. to
Western Europe or
elsewhere."

As an American citizen,
he stated, "I must con-
demn any laws that are op-
posed to American in-
terests. The oil company
chief complained that
Aniericans are' being
forced into becoming part
of the Arab-Israeli dis-
pute.

He charged that
"Zionist elements are
projecting the Arab
boycott as a racialist act
aimed against the Jewish
people. That is not true.
Prince Fahed of Saudi
Arabia told me that the

boycott will end when the
Arab-Israeli dispute is
over. -
Jungers promised "I'll
do my best to ensure that
American legislators
realize that anti-boycott
laws will not end the
Arab-Israeli dispute but
would only intensify it."
Meanwhile, pollster
Louis Harris reported
that a 71-6 majority of
Americans disapprove of
the refusal of Arab oil-
producing countries to
buy products or do busi-
ness with U.S. companies
that deal with Israel.

In the survey of 1,459
adults nationwide, a 44-27
percent plurality favor
legislation that would im-
pose tax penalties on any
U.S. company that co-
operated with the Arab
boycott. (The last Con-
gress passed such a bill,
but it did not become law.)
And by 42 to 29 percent,
Americans favor a tougher
law that would impose a
fine or imprisonment on
any company found guilty
of co-operating with the
boycott.

In a related develop-
ment, all commercial rep-
resentatives of Canada
abroad and all the officers
under the control of the
Board of Trade across
Canada have been in-
structed to refuse any as-
sistance to any Canadian
foreign firm taking part
in any form in the Arab
boycott of Israel.
In New York, the New
York City Teachers' Re-
tirement Board, with as-
sets of nearly $4 billion,
has agreed to vote in
favor of American Jewish
Congress-sponsored re-
solutions opposing the

Arab boycott at annual
meetings of corporations
in which it holds stock.
The board is the first
pension fund to take a
public position on the
issue in response to a
campaign by the AJCon-
gress for support by in-
stitutional investors of its
anti-boycott resolution.

The board unanimously
adopted a resolution at its
Jan. 20 meeting vowing to
resist "the effort of Arab-
bloc countries to involve
AmericanS in their boycott
ofIsrael and to import dis-
criminatory practices in
the U.S."

At the same time, a

strong new federal ban on
anti-Jewish discrimina-
tion by U.S. firms hiring
for overseas work was
hailed by the ADL as "an
affirmation of the supre-
macy of American law on
our shores." The U.S.

Knesset Passes Abortion Law

JERUSALEM (JTA) —
The Knesset passed the
controversial abortion
bill on its third reading
Monday. The infuriated
Orthodox religious estab-
lishment branded it
"murder" and vowed to
overturn it.
Feminists in the Knes-
set said, however, that
the new law did not go far
enough because it still
does not give women the
right 'to abortion on de-
mand.
The measure legalizes
abortion in the early
stages of pregnancy if ap-
proved by a committee of
three which must consist
of two doctors — one a
gynecologist — and a so-
cial worker. Abortions
will be obtainable if the
committee determines
that birth would injure
the physical or emotional
health of the mother, that
the child would be born
with physical or mental
handicaps and if the
mother is under 16 or over
40.

the law be abolished be-
cause it has "no moral va-
lidity." Sephardic Chief
Rabbi Ovadia Yosef
claimed the law "permit-
ted murder" and must be
cancelled.

But MK Marsha
Friedman said the law
was defective because
"doctors are still in
charge of a woman's own
womb and she cannot de-
cide for herself."

The situation in Israel
with respect to abortion is
similar to that in many
Western countries where
abortion was or still is, il-
legal. Termination of
pregnancy is available to
affluent women but not to
the poor.

The rate of abortion in
Israel until now has been
estimated at 40,000-70,000
a year. Doctors who per-
formed abortions were
rarely, if ever, prosecuted.

As in other countries,
Israel's abortion law was
