The Great
Cover-Up

tatted us through their"
lawyers."
In the NCR case, the com-
pany revealed that nine
foreign subsidiaries provided
some 256 items of prohibited
information to Arab League
countries concerning their
relationships with boycotted
countries — meaning Israel
—and with companies doing
business with Israel. "In ad-
dition," according to a state-
ment from Commerce, "on ten
occasions, NCR subsidiaries
allegedly agreed to comply
with regulations of the Arab
boycott of Israel."
The fact that the company
turned itself in to the Com-
merce Department without
admitting guilt or innocence
contributed to the low per-
violation fine, which
amounted to $1500 for each
count; the maximum possible
fine was $10,000 per count.
But in aggregate, it accu-
mulated into the largest fine
ever assessed against a com-
pany for boycott violations.

Tourist Bonanza

And a final summer story:
with Congress in recess and
most of official Washington
campaigning, junketing, or
vacationing, Israel is ex-
periencing its usual summer
congressional tourism
bonanza.
In August alone, five
senators and almost a dozen
congressmen have made the
trip. Some are traveling as
private citizens, others as
part of UJA groups. One, Rep.
Tony Coelho (D-CA) was sup-
posed to lead a large group,
but had to pull out at the last
minute.
On the Senate side, the
tourists included Sen. John B.
Breaux (D-LA), Sen. Quentin
N. Burdick (D-ND), Sen. War-
ren Rudman (R-NH), Sen.
Frank Lautenberg (D-NJ),
and Sen. Albert Gore, Jr.
(D-TN).
Sen. Rudman, according to
reports on Israel Radio, is con-
ferring with Israeli leaders on
the issue of an international
peace conference; his office in
Washington says only that it
is a "personal" trip, and that
the senator is carrying no of-
ficial messages for Israeli
leaders.
And Sen. Gore, the presi-
dential hopeful on the
Democratic side, is bringing
with him a "rather large"
Christian country and west-
ern band, according to the
Israeli embassy here.

.

On the House side, peri-
patetic congressmen include
Rep. Thomas J. Downey, (D-
NY), Rep. Jim Cooper (D-TN),
Rep. Thomas J. Tauke (R-IA),
Rep. Mac Sweeney (R-TX),
Rep. Bill Schuette (R-MI),
Rep. James M. Inhofe (R-OK),
Rep. Jim Bunning (R-KY),
Rep. David E. Bonoir (D-MI),
Rep. Dennis Eckart (D-OH),
Rep. Claude Harris (D-AL),
Rep. James Hayes (D-LA), and
Rep. Dan Glickman (D-KS).
Naturally, the Israeli em-
bassy is pleased about all this
high-ranking tourism. And
with good reason: traditional-
ly, the personal bonds forged
by these kinds of semi-official
visits can pay big dividends in
the legislative push-and-
shove back in Washington.

IN BRIEF

U.S. To Return
Envoy To Syria

Washington (JTA) — The
State Department announced
last week that it will return
the United States Ambas-
sador to Damascus in "re-
sponse to positive steps"
Syria has taken against
terrorism.
U.S. envoy William Eagle-
ton was recalled last October
after Syria was implicated in
the attempted bombing of an
El Al plane in London in
April 1986.
"Our information shows a
decrease in levels of Syrian
support for terrorist activities
and some other groups," said
State Department spokesper-
son Phyllis Oakley. "Syria
has closed the Abu Nidal
organization offices in
Damascus and expelled all
known Abu Nidal organiza-
tion personnel:'
Oakley said the decision to.
return Eagleton was not
related to the escape of jour-
nalist Charles Glass from
captors in Lebanon. Although
Glass said that he escaped
from his captors, Syria had
sought his freedom during a
time when its army controll-
ed Beirut.
Despite the return of the
envoy, economic sanctions im-
posed against Syria last
November remain in effect.
These include restrictions on
U.S. exports, a ban on the sell-
ing of tickets in the U.S. for
Syrian national airline and a
reduction in the staff at the
U.S. Embassy in Damascus
and the Syrian Embassy here.
