Chicago City Council Urges Businessmen Not to Yield to Arabs

The Chicago City Council has adopted a resolution condemning the Arab boycott of Israel and urging Chicago businessmen not to succumb the Arab boycott in this country. The resolution asked the Chicago Association of Commerce and Industry to advise its members that any Arab pressures to attempt to impose the boycott on Chicago firms were “contrary to the spirit of Chicago and the code of ethics of all America.”

The resolution hailed Israel as “one of the United States staunchest friends in the Near East.” Copies of the resolution have been sent to U.S. Senators and Congressmen in on effort to urge Federal legislation on this matter.
