Although it has lingered on
during the entire life of the
State of Israel, and existed
in embryonic form ever
earlier, there are reasons for
hoping that its impetus and
impact may fade sharply in
the months ahead.
First, the illusion of any sort of
Arab unity, in the matter of the
boycott as in the political field,
has vanished. Egypt is at peace
with Israel; hopefully, Lebanon
soon will be. Some of the smaller
Arab states are losing all interest
in an Arab-Israel dispute which is
far removed from their borders.
For them, as for Israel, the boy-
cott has been largely a matter of
wasted time and effort a
SECONDLY, Arab oil power
has waned, although it remains a
real factor. Arab oil money is still
deposited, in its millions, in the
banks of Western countries. Arab
markets are still of deep interest
to the great exporting countries.
Arab oil is still needed, but there
is a fair balance of strength be-
tween the Arab oil states and the

School Prayer Amendment
Rapped by Legal Experts
proposed constitutional
amendment that would
permit a fixed period of
silent meditation in the
classroom and allow stu-
dent religious clubs to use
public school facilities has
been sharply criticized by
two legal experts in testi-
mony before a Senate com-
mittee. They charge such
an amendment would limit
rather than expand reli-
gious freedom and equality.
Testifying before the Senate
Committee on the Judiciary, Joel
Levy, who represented the
American Jewish Congress, said
a constitutional amendment to
permit classroom time to be set
aside for meditation would
directly involve teachers in reli-
gious affairs and could lead to
abuses. Younger students, who
would require or seek the advice
of a teacher on how to use the
"moment of silence," could be
influenced in their religious
beliefs by such advice, he said.
LEVY ALSO pointed out that
while proponents of the amend-
ment claim that the decision to
use the period of meditation for
prayer would be voluntary on the
part of the students, those who
do not wish to participate might
find it difficult to do so without
"stigmatizing" themselves in the
eyes of other students or their
Appearing on behalf of the Na-
tional Coalition for Public Edu-
cation and Religious Liberty, an
umbrella group representing 32
organizations, Nathan Z. Der-
showitz challenged the provision
of the proposed amendment that
would allow student religious
clubs the same access to public
school facilities as other student
The existence of such clubs
would lead to proselytization, he
said. The presence of a teacher as
faculty adviser, a requirement for
student organizations in public
schools, is "particularly trouble-
some" because it would make the
existence of religious clubs
"pregnant with the danger of
administrative entanglement,"
he claimed.
DERSHOWITZ, who serves as
counsel to PEARL, is a member
of the legal staff of A JCongress.
The presence of a teacher "is
not a neutral factor in a student's
decision whether or not to parti-
cipate in a particular club,"
Dershowitz told the Senate com-
mittee. "In some cases, students
will view a particular teacher as a
role model, and therefore imitate
him or her as much as possible."
He also suggested that a
student whose grade depends on
the good will of a teacher may feel
it "advantageous" to participate
in a club sponsored by that
teacher in order to curry favor.
"Conversely, a student who
desires not to participate in a
religious club may feel ill at ease
in the sponsoring or supervising
teacher's regular class because of
that refusal," Dershowitz con-
HE SAID such official in-
volvement by teachers and school
officials would constitute a

government thumb on the
scale" in contrast to the tradi-
tional government neutrality in
religious matters called for in the
Bill of Rights. An "equal accees"
amendment might require the
subsidization of religious clubs
from school funds raised through
taxes or student activity fees, on
the same basis as non-religious
clubs, he said.
Dershowitz declared that "at
the heart" of the proposed
amendment "is a dissatisfaction
with the special status accorded
religion by the Constitution and
the relevant Supreme Court deci-
Proponents of the amendment,
he said, want to see religion given
the "special benefits" of the Free
Exercise clause of the Consti-
tution which prohibits the
government from interfering with
religious freedom, but "none of
the disadvantages" of the
Establishment Clause that
mandates separation of church
and state by prohibiting sponsor-
ship of or assistance to a parti-
cular religion.
NOTING THAT the "rose
cannot be had without the
thorn," Dershowitz disclaimed
any desire to "hobble" religion.
"Rather, we believe that the res-
trictions imposed by the
Establishment Clause are the
only ones available to insure that
the public schools do not become
the battlegrounds for students'
souls," he said.
"That is precisely what will
happen if student religious clubs
are permitted to function. Such a
result would benefit neither the
public schools nor religion and
would be particularly painful for
religious minorities."
He said it would "revive"
those painful years in which the
public schools were drawn into
bitter sectarian strife between
Protestants and Catholics."
Senate Committee that "it is not
easy to oppose proposals which,
like the instant one, can be
plausibly labelled as enhancing
equality." But, he added,
"equality between faiths will not
be enhanced, nor religious liberty
furthered, by this proposal."
Dershowitz also warned that
the provisions of the Bill of
Rights, which would be changed
by the proposed amemdment,
"have remained inviolate for
almost 200 years now, despite
periodic calls for change."
A successful attempt to amend
the provision on religion would
open the way to further amend-
ments, he said. "Only a need of
the highest order and the
issues dealt with here are not
such should suffice to justify a
constitutional amendment to the
First Amendment, the corner-
stone of our religious and politi-
cal liberties.'*

Reaganites Oppose Israel's Hebron Plan
(JTA) The Reagan Ad-
ministration has asserted
that the Israeli govern-
ment's decision to rebuild
the old Jewish quarter of
Hebron is not "helpful" to
the peace process.
"We do not consider plans to
build settlements in Hebron to be
helpful in achieving an atmos-
phere on the West Bank condu-
cive to the peace process," State
Department deputy spokesman
Alan Romberg said.
was made by the Israel Cabinet
in the wake of the murder of
Arabs last week in central Heb-
ron of a 19-year-old American-
born yeshiva student, Aharon
Gross. The State Department
last Friday condemned the
murder, as well as the apparent
retaliatory burning of the Hebron
central market, reportedly by
Jewish militants.
Romberg, in his remarks,
repeated President Reagan's
statement in his September 1
peace initiative in which Reagan
said "further settlement activity
is in no way necessary for the
security of Israel and only
diminishes the confidence of the
Arabs that a final outcome can be
freely and fairly negotiated."
The Cabinet resolved to go
ahead with plans approved in
1980 to rebuild the old Jewish
quarter of Hebron, deserted
during the Arab riots in 1929.
Premier Menachem Begin in-
sisted, however, that this had
nothing to do with Thursday's
murder. Army Radio reported
that Housing Ministry plans call
for the settlement of 500 Jewish
families in Hebron. But only
about a dozen families will be in-
volved in the first stage. Housing
Minister David Levy said the
plans were proceeding with
MOST OF the open stalls and
several stores in the Hebron
market were gutted by Jewish
settlers from the adjacent Ortho-
dox township of Kiryat Arba.
Defense Minister Moshe
Arens, who visited Hebron
shortly after the murder was
cursed by some of the settlers
and his car was surrounded for a
time. Arena, a Herat hardliner,
has been accused by the Gush
Emunim militants of Kiryat
Arba of not cracking down hard
enough on West Bank Arabs.
Municipal workers were clear-
ing up the debris and than
were reports that the owners of
the damaged shops and stalls will
be compensated for their losses.
Meanwhile, the Old City of Je-
rusalem was quiet in the after-
math of a riot by Arabs on the
Temple Mount Friday. The
stone-throwing melee occurred as
worshippers left the Al Aksa
mosque following services
ushering in the Moslem feast of
Id Al Fiter marking the end of
the month of Ramadan. Police
said that only a small number of
the worshippers were involved in
the riot.
Alter Elected To
Gary S. Alter, Executive Di-
rector of the Tampa Jewish Fed-
eration, has been elected to the
Board of Directors of The Associ-
ation of Jewish Community Or-
ganization Personnel (AJCOP)

nity organization work in and for
the Jewish community, its orga-
nizations and institutions on a

tices, scope and public under-
standing of the field of Jewish
community organization, as
practiced through the Jewish
Federation, as well as by the local

tutions in American Jewish life.

Negotiation American-Style
What is worse, as a principle negotiator
for peace in the Middle East between Israel
and its Arab neighbors, time and again the
Reagan Administration and the U.S. State
Department have managed to create new
sets of facts when they were either in dis-
pute before, or else did not exist at all.
The Reagan Administration's repeated
violation of the stipulations in the Camp
David agreements having to do with the
West Bank and Gaza (Judea and Samaria,
if you will), despite the President's brave
assertions to the contrary during his run
for office in 1980, is a perfect example of
creating a new set of facts involving an
issue previously in dispute.
The State Department's drawing of a
new map of the Middle East is a perfect ex-
ample of creating a new set of facts in-
volving an issue that did not exist before at
In what sense then are the President and
all of his men negotiators in the cause of
peace in the Middle East today? What do
they leave open to negotiate as they go
along arbitrarily changing the rules, the
conditions and the realities of the dispute
among the parties involved?
This is neither negotiation nor arbi-
tration. This is high-handed ordination
instead. Furthermore, it is a terribly
dangerous game which the Administration
is playing. It shows the Arabs increasingly
that the U.S. isn't worth a hill of beans in
honesty or integrity so far as its Israeli ally
is concerned, and Israel is constantly being
assured the U.S. is an ally, is it not?
Under these circumstances, given the
dim-witted attitudes of the Administration,
can there be even among its policy-makers
any doubt that the United States is not
staunching the flames of further fighting in
the Middle East, but fanning them?
A Sense of Foreboding
As of now, at any rate, the date between
them is still on. Menachem Begin will be
meeting with Ronald Reagan in
Washington on July 27. But there is no
jubilation m Jerusalem about this. And we
suspect, there is little more at the White
What both parties fear is a Begin ex-
plosion, with Begins propensity for
Biblical peroration. There is some reason
for this: Begin's emotional state of mind
since the death of his beloved wife, Aliza
And on top of this, the death of his
longtime friend and political ally the other
week, Deputy Prime Minister Simcha
Heightened by the tensions in Hebron
and the growing anti-Lebanon campaign
sentiment in Israel itself, Mr. Begin's
depressed but smouldering state of mind
these days may result in what nobody
wants. Not even the careless, callous
Reagan Administration.
The Seduction of a Journalist
THE INSIDIOUS controllers
of the middle-American mind are
now saying that the Carter paper
caper is a draw and therefore of
no significance. They allege that
both sides knew about it before it
took its toll on President Carter
in his fateful debate with then-
candidate Ronald Reagan, and so
how could it possibly matter
then? Or now?
Charles Crawford, an aide to
Mr. Reagan during the cam-
paign, is supposed to have told
Carol C. Darr, a worker in the
Carter reelection organization,
that Reagan had copies of Presi-
dent Carter's debate briefing
IN TURN, Darr told her boss,
Timothy G. Smith, the Presi-
dent's campaign counsel. But
Smith thought that the notion
was so unbelievable as to be
untrue, and that it wouldn't even
be worth mentioning Darr's story
to Carter. Now, of course, Smith
says he's sorry.
But the main point of all of this
past tense sleuthing is that we
are now meant to believe that the
Carter paper caper doesn't
amount to a hill of beans. That it
was all a happy intrafamily joke.
That everybody knew about it,
and no one cared. Even Steven.
Nonsense. I do not subscribe to
the theory that, even if the
Democrats surrounding their
man knew nothing about the
stolen papers, as the media now
allege, it wouldn't have mattered.
According to the theory, Jimmy
Carter could never have beaten
Ronald Reagan anyway.
I AM NO Carter fan. Between
him and President Reagan, it is a
toss-up as to who is the greater
national disaster. But the fact is
that the media, principally tele-
vision, are devastating in their
capacity to shape the average
middle-American mind, which
believes that if you read it in
print or see it on TV, why then it
must be true.
George Will
"Now, there you go again, Mr.
President." That was Ronald
Reagan's refrain in reaction to
every telling Carter point in the
fateful Oct. 28, 1980 debate be-
tween them. And suddenly, old
dullard Reagan sounded like a
Phi Beta Kappa bent on being
brilliant about everything from
foreign policy to the intricacies of
economics. It was the paper
caper, of course, that prepared
Is it conceivable that this
staged Republican performance
had no impact on a rapt nation
watching it? Or that it can have
no significance now, when
suddenly all the gory tales are
pouring so profusely from the
maw of ir. oroi whilp secrecv?
THE TRAGEDY, for example,
of Watergate is not that stolen
papers from Democratic Party
Headquarters changed the course
of the election. Nothing could
have given George McGovern the
power to defeat Richard Nixon,
even if he had suffered the same
liability that President Carter
suffered in his campaign for re-
election eight years later.
The Watergate theft was
bungled, but suppose it had
succeeded. In either case, the
result was irrelevant to the
outcome. In the end, the tragedy
is that the attempt at theft
should have occurred at all.
Beyond this, I feel like those
Americans who were cheated out
of their proper choice in the 1968
campaign, when Sirhan Sirhan
assassinated Robert Kennedy. In
the same way, I feel cheated by
the assassination of John F. Ken-
nedy in 1963 because he hadn't
even been granted a chance in the
presidency to get off the ground
and show what be could do.
Or by the assassination of
Martin Luther King, Jr., which
changed, hardly for the better,
the whole character of the civil
rights movement after that.
public opinion may be strutting
their stuff once again, but there
can be no trivializing of this
latest fraud perpetrated by the
Republican Party's presidential
planners. There can be no
counting on the fact that, by
now, most Americans are tired of
this kind of trickery anyway,
what with the saturation they
feel of Watergate and its after-
math. There can be no im-
munizing of the public conscience
against the horror of such pro-
found immorality in our highest
halls with the vaccine of repeated
immoralities there. Or plays
about these immoralities in the
movies and on TV until we are
meant to shrug them off as na-
tural to the national condition.
For the manipulators and the
planners themselves are finally
being hunted out, as well as their
puppets, the Nixons and now the
Reagan s.
Enter George Will, the disti i-
guished syndicated columnist.
No wonder President Reagan, old
affable Ron, could keep shaking
his head in disbelief during that
Oct. 28 debate and say, "Now,
there you go again, Mr. Presi-
dent." That, in fact, is what
America must now come to say
to Mr. Reagan.
WHAT DID Will do. a man
who writes conservative columns
of such profound punditry and
winsome wisdom for millions of
the nation's citizens to peruse?
Will knew all about the Carter
paper caper. It was Will, as it
turns out he is Ronald Reagan's
"favorite" columnist, who was
called in to coach Mr. Reagan in
the use of the stolen material so
that Reagan could respond to
President Carter's line of debate
with maximum effectiveness.
Will not only knew about the
theft, but he helped Reagan use
the purloined papers in repeated
rehearsals of the answers Reagan
would be called upon to give.
Here was a newspaperman, a
gifted and respected and trusted
writer and thinker, engaging in a

EDITOR, The Jewish Floridian: \
I am doing research for i
master's thesis on the history of
several Jewish agricultural com-

Kansas in the early 1880s. I hope
to complete the thesis as soon
The communities were in Ford,
Finney, Clark, Comanche,
Hodgeman, Barber, and possibly
Pratt counties, and were called
Beersheba, Montefiore, Lasker,
Gilead, Hebron, Touro, Lesser

Many of the families in thaw
communities were assisted by
Jewish famili^ n New York

And when they left the communi-
ties in the late 1880s many moved

cities throughout the country.

Our executive committee and
of Directors responded
jickly and the 1983 Campaign

lunched. Several hundred people

Ganges in professional leader-

at the Hillel School of Tampa had
to be overcome and plans to
physically maintain the Jewish
Community Center were brought
to the forefront. The Federation
Board of Directors has approved
a capital fund campaign to raise
$400,000 to repair the Jewish
Community Center and to move
the Hillel School to the Jewish
Community Center property.
This is an ambitious and progres-
sive move on the part of our Jew-
ish community to help meet these
important needs.
The Tampa Jewish Federation
also sponsored an evaluation of
the Hillel School on both an
academic and administrative
level. The results of this survey
should substantially help the
Hillel School in the years to
come. The sponsorship of the
film, "Genocide," by the Federa-
tion brought over 600 individuals
to the Tampa Theatre. Proceeds
aided the work of the Simon

re-examination of the appropriate
role and function of virtually

new opportunities in service and
new approaches to those who are

Finally, as we head towards
next year, we can hope for a
deeper appreciation of what we
have here in Tampa, and the
consequent willingness to
support it with our increased vol-
untary gifts; for leaders who will
preserve the old and build for a
new and dynamic Jewish com-
munity life in Tampa.

to educate families in preventa-

Government hospitals, still

were hit by a work stop-

health services were also
affected by the walk-out.
The stoppage was called as a
one-day demonstration, but hos-
pital sources said it might con-
tinue. The strikers are demand-

Affirmative Action Called Way to Go
"The only way lasting equal
(opportunity can be achieved" is
through affirmative action hiring
and promotion programs which
do not resort to quotas and racial
preference, the Anti-Defamation
[ League declared.
Leslie K. Shedlin, assistant
I director of ADL's Legal Affairs
> Department, has told a congres-

conscious mechanisms will make
equal opportunity "a living reali-

Shedlin was a witness before

tional Rights, which was holding
hearings on next years budget
request for the Justice Depart-
ment's Civil Rights Division.

Israel governmental co-
operation is helping Israel's
diamond manufacturers lower
their labor costs in a long-awaited
move which the industry says
will appreciably enhance the price
competitiveness of Israel-cut
The introduction of currency
exchange insurance for the
diamond industry, it was pointed
out, comes in the wake of one of
its best recent monthly export
performances, an increase of
more than 35 percent, with sales
in June exceeding $85 million
compared to $62.5 million for the
same month last year. Six-month
exports in 1983 reached $510 mil-
lion in contrast to $451 million in
overseas sales during January to
June last year.
The Ministry of Finance is now
granting the diamond industry
the effective type of currency ex-
change insurance other export
industries receive.
The Board of Directors of the
National Council of Jewish
Women, during its annual
meeting in New York City, ex-
pressed its opposition to the pro-
posed federal regulations on
Medicare reimbursement for
hospice care. The statement
declares that the regulations
would establish an inadequate
ceiling, well below the original
intent of Congress and signifi-
cantly lower than actual costs.
"The intent of Congress in
allowing hospice care to qualify
under Medicare was to provide a
combination of medical, social
and psychological services in a
humane and less costly home-like
setting for those terminally ill
patients who have life expectancy
of six months or less. Under the
new proposed limits, Medicare
would only cover up to $4,332 for
a maximum of 76 days, rather
than the maximum six-month
period intended by law," the
statement explained.
Prof. Badri Azaz, 52, has been
elected dean of the Hebrew

Born in Baghdad, Dr. Azaz
settled in Israel in 1951 and in
1960 received his DMD from the

An anti-Semitic book has been
removed from bookstore shelves
in Mexico as a result of a protest
to the publisher by the Anti-
Defamation League of B'nai
According to Abraham H.
Foxman, ADL's associate na-
tional director, the book,
Palestina: Del Judia Errante Al
Judio Errado ("Palestine: From
the Wandering Jew to the
Wrongdoing Jew"), a 94-page
paperback in Spanish whose
author is listed as "Rius," is a
distortion of Jewish history. He
characterized it as "the most
virulent, hate-ridden, violence-
prone piece of literature that has
been produced so far in Mexico."
In removing the book from
sale, the publisher, Grijalbo, an
international firm headquartered
in Barcelona, Spain, told Foxman
that the book had been printed
by its Mexican branch "without
having informed us."

Illusion of Arab Unitu Vanishing
Will Thatcher Victory End Boycott in London?

industrialised communities which
supply the Arabs with almost
everything else that they need.
At least, the craven fear which
swept the Western world ten
years ago has disappeared. If
nothing else, the Iraq-ban war is
a reminder that unified Arab oil
blackmail is a thing of the past.
Thirdly, the American example
of actively combating the boycott
is beginning to impinge on other
industrialized countries, in two
ways. American anti-boycott
legislation has not resulted in any
falling away of American trade
with the Arab world. Indeed,
U.S. exports to 13 Arab oil states
have increased by an annual
average of 20 percent ever since
MOREOVER, American
legislators have recently shown
that they are prepared to take
action against European firms
with major business in their
country if these firms refuse to
conform to U.S. legislation and
instead collaborate with the Arab
boy cotters.
The imposition of a $25,000
fine in Lloyds Bank International
by the U.S. Commerce Depart-
ment is in the nature of a
precedent. The U.S. adminis-
tration is no longer prepared to
give foreign firms advantages
over their own. As the world
economic recession ebbs, British
and other foreign firms may find
they risk valuable American
business by bowing to the boy-
Lloyds Bank International, it
should be noted, had honored two
letters of credit which required
American exporters to issue
certificates which are illegal in
the U.S., confirming that goods
sold were not of Israeli origin and
that payments could not be made
to individuals by firms black-
listed by the Arabs.
It is significant, too, that the
question of Britain's refusal to
allow shipments of North Sea oil
to 1 srael may be cited as an act of
a boycotting country within
the terms of the U.S. Export
Administration Act, according to
U.S. Export Weekly. The U.S.
Sun Oil Company (SUNOCO) is
already being sued in New York
for failure to deliver North Sea
crude to the Swiss Bulk Oil
company for shipment to Israel.
THERE IS also the possibility
that a new, strong British
Government will take a new, hard
look at the operations of the Arab
boycott on British soil. There is
every reason for them to do so.
The government's half-hearted
opposition to the boycott has
almost certainly contributed to

the decline of Britain's share of
Israel's increasing imports
this share is down from 16 per-
cent in 1970 to around 7 percent
today. Britain had a trade deficit
of 52 million pounds last year; on
1970 form, there would have been
a surplus of about 175 million
pounds. How many jobs might
have been saved by that extra
volume of trade?
No assessment is possible of
the amount of time wasted by
British firms in the course of
conforming with the boycott by
filling in its tiresomely compre-
hensive questionnaires, or of
taking steps to preserve trade
clandestinely with either Israel or
its Arab enemies, usually
through third parties.
Precisely because the workings
of the boycott are erratic and
unpredictable, most time of all is
wasted by those British and
other foreign firms which parti-
cipate in the "voluntary" boycott
of Israel in fact, seeking to
conform with the boycott without
ever having come under Arab
A PERFECT example of this
voluntary boycott has been
provided by the firm of Steel
Brothers, which is engaged in the
chocolate-making industry. This
firm convinced itself that trade in
chocolate would come under the
provisions of the boycott and
passed up a proffered deal worth
160,000 pounds with the Israeli
company. Elite. This was done
voluntarily and not at Arab
insistence. Yet the chocolate
trade has no direct connection
with the Arab boycott; chocolate
cannot be regarded as military
hardware or "strategic" goods.
Companies like Steel Brothers
are apt to draw wrong conclu-
sions from the experiences of
other firms who may be broadly
in the same line of business, but
have set up manufacturing plants
in Israel itself. Sadly, a govern-
ment department which was
informed of this particular case
would not proffer advice on the
grounds that it might be
resented, or even regarded as
interference in the firm's "com-
mercial judgment."
This unfortunate phrase con-
tinues to figure in the instruc-
tions issued by the Department
of Trade to companies trading in
the Middle East; they are
directed to make decisions ac-
cording to their own commercial
IT HAS repeatedly been
pointed out to the Department by
the British-Israel Chamber of
Commerce that such a directive is
totally superfluous companies
are certain, in all situations, to
use their own commercial judg-
ment and need not be told to do
The Department has argued
that it cannot "interfere" with
judgment, or "restrain" firms,
but nobody has ever suggested
that it should. What it has been
asked to do is merely to offer ad-
vice and help to British firms
coming under Arab boycott pres-
sure. As worded, its present di-
rective plainly indicates an un-
spoken unwillingness to do just
The British-Israel Chamber
has a more serious quarrel with
the government over continued
Foreign Office authentication of
boycott documents notably
the highly unethical "negative
certificates of origin," which
state that goods destined for an
Arab country are not wholly or
even partly of Israeli origin.
AGAIN, the Chamber has
pointed out that the Foreign Of-
fice signature which is readily
given on request is superfluous.
For all it does is to authenticate
the signature of a notary public
which, in itself sets a fined seal on
any given document.
The Foreign Office "defense"
is evasive. It rests on two asser-
tions. The first is that it does not
authenticate "many" negative,
unethical certificates produced
by the Arabs. This is strikingly
similar to the case of the girl who
gave birth to an illegitima.
child, but suggested that it was
really a very small one.
The second Foreign Office line
of defense is that its official sig-
nature is appended without
knowing anything about the con-
tents of the document in ques-
tion. Casuistry, or just irrespon-
sibility? Perhaps a bit of both.
Correspondence with the gov-
ernment has. however, revealed
one new fact that there is clear
cognizance that the Arab-British
Chamber of Commerce authen-
ticates the "great majority" of
the negative certificates required
by Arab boycott offices to be au-
thenticated. This was admitted in
the House of Commons on Feb. 8
by Douglas Hurd, the then
Undersecretary of State at the
Foreign Office. It was confirmed
by Hurd in a letter to the British-
Israel Chamber in May.
action. Whereas boycott offices
operate from Damascus and
other Arab capitals, the Arab-
British Chamber of Commerce is
operating on British soil. It is
