Reacting to reports that an Islamic summit on the economic boycott of Israel is scheduled to take place in Saudi Arabia, the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) today called on the Saudis to reaffirm their pledge to the United States that they would not restrict trade to Israel. "As a condition for admission into the World Trade Organization, Saudi Arabia made a pledge to the United States that they would not enforce trade restrictions against any members of that organization, including the State of Israel," said Barbara B. Balser, ADL National Chair and Abraham H. Foxman, ADL National Director. "We hope that the Saudis have not gone back on their word." The 57-nation Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC) is scheduled to convene in Jidda, Saudi Arabia, March 13-15. According to a report in The Jerusalem Post, the meeting will be focused on the Arab economic boycott of Israel.
