Some American businessmen have complained to the Carter Administration that they are losing a competitive edge In the Middle East because of the U.S. anti-Arab boycott laws and other legislation, but the State Department is not considering any recommendation to alter the laws. Reacting to a published report here of the complaints, the Department said that they are not of sufficient importance for it to consider law changes. The anti-boycott legislation was adopted to black discrimination by Arabs against Americans on grounds of race or religion.
