Boycott

developments in agriculture,
software and biotechnology.
Sweke points to Nikken
Ltd. in Gypo, near Kyoto,
which has invested more than
$8 million in a research and
development project based in
Eilat on Israel's most
southern coast on the Red
Sea. Israeli researchers there
have developed a form of
dunaliella, a type of seaweed
which contains anti-
cancerous agents for use in
food additives and cosmetics.
It marks the first time that a
Japanese company has in-
vested directly in an Israeli
company. Another Japanese
firm recently purchased a
small electronics imaging
company from Herzilya.
Overall, the Israeli treasury
estimates that the Arab
boycott costs the Israeli
economy $400 million per
year in higher priced imports,
lost exports and other
business opportunities. It is
believed that Israeli industry
could attract 10 percent more
investment per year if it
weren't for the fear many in-
ternational investors have of
the boycott.
The Arab boycott creates
other problems for the Israeli
economy. According to Zvi
Alon, the director of the In-
dustrial Cooperation Authori-
ty in Tel Aviv — the depart-
ment within the ministry
responsible for implementing
industrial cooperation
policies — because of the
threat of the Arab boycott,
Japanese, German, Italian
and French automobile

makers refuse to procure
some of their spare parts or
other equipment from Israeli
companies to balance a $1
billion vehicle import bill.
"Although they claim that
there is no substantial
manufacturing capacity in
Israel, contrary to what they
do eslewhere, they refuse to
assist the local industry to
create such a capacity," says
Alon. "In addition, their local
sales agents are forbidden to
procure parts from Israeli
companies."

Alon reveals that IBM buys
Israeli computer systems and
accessories totaling $100
million annually and recent-
ly decided to open a special
purchasing office in Israel.
But electronics companies in
Holland, West Germany and
England barely give Israeli
suppliers enough information
on public tenders.

Dr. David Nave, acting
deputy general for interna-
tional affairs of the Ministry
of Finance in Jerusalem, in-
sists the time has come for
Israel to use the issue of free
trade in international
debates to change the focus of
the Arab boycott argument so
it fits in with the overall
world trend in favor of free
trade.
"The Arab boycott is a non-
tariff barrier," he points out.
"If a company abides by it, it
places certain markets and
companies off limits which is
an obstruction to free trade.
Free trade and boycotts are
simply not compatible."



Klanwatch: Skinheads
U.S. Terrorists Of 90s

SUSAN BIRNBAUM

Special to The Jewish News

R

acist skinheads could
be "the domestic ter-
rorists of the 1990s,"
according to a report on their
activity by Klanwatch, a
project of the Southern Pov-
erty Law Center.
The Montgomery, Ala.,
center, a legal service whose
Klanwatch Project monitors
racist activity, says that the
violent, racist Skinheads
have contributed to an up-
surge in hate crimes in this
country that points to their
being considered terrorists.
"Skinheads were con-
sidered the radical upstarts
of the 1980s, but they are on
their way to becoming the
domestic terrorists of the
1990s," said Morris Dees,

center director, in a news
conference last month an-
nouncing the report.
The 46-page report, "Hate
Violence and White
Supremacy: A Decade
Review, 1980-1990," in-
cludes sketches of the
prominent leaders of the
hate movement and a
chronicle of attacks and
threats during the 19080s.
More than half the incidents
took place in the last two
years.
The report holds the
skinheads to be "the most
violent group of white
supremacists this country
has seen in a quarter cen-
tury.
"Unobstructed by cons-
cience or caution, they hold
hatred as their only ideology
and violence as their only
tactic," it warns.
