Arabic posters with the swastika prominently displayed and advocating a boycott of all Jewish stores have suddenly appeared in Arab shop windows in Jerusalem and Haifa. At the same time walls in the two cities were placarded with the Arabic swastika posters.

The anti-Jewish boycott movement, believed to be inspired by the Nazis, has as slogans: “The Jew’s gain is the Arab’s loss” and “Don’t go near Jewish shops.”
