Condemns Syria's continuing denial of Syrian Jews' internationally recognized rights to freedom of emigration and movement and calls upon the Syrian Government to: (1) immediately grant Syrian Jews the right to emigrate freely without imposing a fee; and (2) release all Syrian Jews who are imprisoned for their attempts to exercise their rights to freedom of emigration and movement.

Urges the President to: (1) encourage U.S. allies and trading partners to make similar pleas to the Syrian Government; and (2) seek a United Nations investigation of the present condition of Syrian Jews and the status of respect for internationally recognized human rights in Syria.
