                Notice of January 15, 2009

                
Continuation of the National Emergency with 
                Respect to Terrorists Who Threaten to Disrupt the 
                Middle East Peace Process

                On January 23, 1995, by Executive Order 12947, the 
                President declared a national emergency pursuant to the 
                International Emergency Economic Powers Act (50 U.S.C. 
                1701-1706) to deal with the unusual and extraordinary 
                threat to the national security, foreign policy, and 
                economy of the United States constituted by grave acts 
                of violence committed by foreign terrorists who 
                threaten to disrupt the Middle East peace process. On 
                August 20, 1998, by Executive Order 13099, the 
                President modified the Annex to Executive Order 12947 
                to identify four additional persons, including Usama 
                bin Laden, who threaten to disrupt the Middle East 
                peace process.

                Because these terrorist activities continue to threaten 
                the Middle East peace process and to pose an unusual 
                and extraordinary threat to the national security, 
                foreign policy, and economy of the United States, the 
                national emergency declared on January 23, 1995, as 
                expanded on August 20, 1998, and the measures adopted 
                on those dates to deal with that emergency must 
                continue in effect beyond January 23, 2009. Therefore, 
                in accordance with section 202(d) of the National 
                Emergencies Act (50 U.S.C. 1622(d)), I am continuing 
                for 1 year the national emergency with respect to 
                foreign terrorists who threaten to disrupt the Middle 
                East peace process.

                This notice shall be published in the Federal Register 
                and transmitted to the Congress.
                
                
                    (Presidential Sig.)

                THE WHITE HOUSE,

                    January 15, 2009.
