From: "farbuthnot" <>

If anyone subscribes to Middle East Economic Digest, could they post the
article which says that the US is encouraging Israeli companies to bid
Iraqi contracts, please.

I don't think anyone posted a reply to this, here's the article from
lexis nexis, hope this is what you were looking for:

* Iran More than one hundred members of the Iranian opposition group,
the Mujahedin-e-Khalq Organisation, were arrested in Paris in late June,
prompting major demonstrations by their supporters in Paris and London.
Several attempted to immolate themselves in protest at the arrests,
leading to the death of one. France said the arrests were intended to
forestall a wave of attacks planned by the group after the US disarmed
their Iraq-based forces. Much of the group has been based in France for
more than 20 years, leading Iranian newspapers to question the timing of
this round of arrests.

* Iraq The US has called on Israeli companies to participate in the
reconstruction of Iraq, the Israeli daily Yediot Aharonot reported on 25
June. According to the newspaper, US Treasury vice-secretary John Taylor
invited Israeli firms "to work, invest and participate in the various
fields" that have been opened up in Iraq. Taylor said the opportunities
would come up as soon as Israeli activities and investment under Iraq's
new economic legislation - to be issued within the next weeks - have
been sanctioned. Once approved, Israeli companies will also be able to
sell their products on the Iraqi market, Taylor said.
