Ford Urged to Assure Passage of Anti-boycott Legislation

The Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations urged President Ford today to use his “personal intervention” to assure passage of anti-boycott legislation now pending before Congress. A telegram to the President, signed by Rabbi Alexander M. Schindler, chairman of the Presidents Conference, said:

“The organized Jewish community urgently requests your Administration to take all possible measures to assure the final adoption of the anti-boycott legislation now before Congress. Economic blackmail must be resisted: America cannot sell its principles for oil money. It must not become the instrument for furthering the foreign policies of nations whose purposes are inimical to ours. The Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations asks your personal intervention to that end.”
