A REPORT ON DEVELOPMENTS CONCERNING THE NATIONAL EMERGENCY WITH RESPECT

    THAT WAS DECLARED IN EXECUTIVE ORDER 12947 OF JANUARY 23, 1995,

    September 11, 1998.--Referred to the Committee on International 
                  Relations and ordered to be printed


                                           The White House,
                                       Washington, August 20, 1998.
Hon. Newt Gingrich,
Speaker of the House of Representatives.
    Dear Mr. Speaker: On January 23, 1995, in light of the 
threat posed by grave acts of violence committed by foreign 
terrorists that disrupt the Middle East peace process, using my 
authority under, inter alia, the International Emergency 
Economic Powers Act (50 U.S.C. 1701 et seq.), I declared a 
national emergency and issued Executive Order 12947. Because 
such terrorist activities continue to pose an unusual and 
extraordinary threat to the national security, foreign policy, 
and economy of the United States, I have renewed the national 
emergency declared in Executive Order 12947 annually, most 
recently on January 21, 1998. Pursuant to section 204(b) of the 
International Emergency Economic Powers Act (50 U.S.C. 1703(b)) 
and section 201 of the National Emergencies Act (50 U.S.C. 
1631), I hereby report to the Congress that I have exercised my 
statutory authority to issue an Executive Order that amends 
Executive Order 12947 in order more effectively to respond to 
the worldwide threat posed by foreign terrorists.
    The amendment to the Annex of Executive Order 12947 adds 
Usama bin Muhammad bin Awad bin Ladin (a.k.a. Usama bin Ladin), 
Islamic Army, Abu Hafs al-Masri, and Rifa'i Ahmad Taha Musa to 
the list of terrorists that are subject to the prohibitions 
contained in the Executive Order. These prohibitions include 
the blocking of all property and interests in the property of 
the terrorists listed in the Annex, the prohibition of any 
transaction or dealing by United States persons or within the 
United States in property or interests in property of the 
persons designated, and the prohibition of any transaction by 
any United States persons or within the United States that 
evades or avoids, or has the purpose of evading or avoiding, 
any of the prohibitions set forth in the Executive Order.
    Usama bin Ladin and his organizations and associates have 
repeatedly called upon their supporters to perform acts of 
violence. Bin Ladin has declared that killing Americans and 
their allies ``is an individual duty for every Muslim . . . in 
order to liberate the Al-Aqsa Mosque and the Holy Mosque.'' 
These threats are clearly intended to violently disrupt the 
Middle East peace process.
    This Executive Order does not limit or otherwise affect the 
other provisions of Executive Order 12947.
    I have authorized these actions in view of the danger posed 
to the national security, foreign policy, and economy of the 
United States by the activities of Usama bin Muhammad bin Awad 
bin Ladin (a.k.a. Usama bin Ladin), Islamic Army, Abu Hafs al-
Masri, and Rifa'i Ahmad Taha Musa that disrupt the Middle East 
peace process. I am enclosing a copy of the Executive Order 
that I have issued exercising my emergency authorities.
            Sincerely,
                                                      Bill Clinton.

                            Executive Order

                              ----------                              


 Prohibiting Transactions With Terrorists Who Threaten to Disrupt the 
                       Middle East Peace Process

    By the authority vested in me as President by the 
Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, 
including the International Emergency Economic Powers Act (50 
U.S.C. 1701 et seq.), the National Emergencies Act (50 U.S.C. 
1601 et seq.), and section 301 of title 3, United States Code,
    I, WILLIAM J. CLINTON, President of the United States of 
America, in order to take additional steps with respect to 
grave acts of violence committed by foreign terrorists that 
disrupt the Middle East peace process and the national 
emergency described and declared in Executive Order 12947 of 
January 23, 1995, hereby order:
    Section 1. The title of the Annex to Executive order 12947 
of January 23, 1995, is revised to read ``TERRORISTS WHO 
THREATEN TO DISRUPT THE MIDDLE EAST PEACE PROCESS.''
    Sec. 2. The Annex to Executive Order 12947 of January 23, 
1995, is amended by adding thereto the following persons in 
appropriate alphabetical order:
    Usama bin Muhammad bin Awad bin Ladin (a.k.a. Usama bin 
Ladin)
    Islamic Army (a.k.a. Al-Qaida, Islamic Salvation 
Foundation, The Islamic Army for the Liberation of the Holy 
Places, The World Islamic Front for Jihad Against Jews and 
Crusaders, and The Group for the Preservation of the Holy 
Sites)
    Abu Hafs al-Masri
    Rifa'i Ahmad Taha Musa
    Sec. 3. Nothing contained in this order shall create any 
right or benefit, substantive or procedural, enforceable by any 
party against the United States, its agencies or 
instrumentalities, its officers or employees, or any other 
person.
    Sec. 4. (a) This order is effective at 12:01 a.m., eastern 
daylight time on August 21, 1998.
    (b) This order shall be transmitted to the Congress and 
published in the Federal Register.
                                                William J. Clinton.
    The White House, August 20, 1998.
