Arabs Threaten Swiss Firm for Using Star of David As Trade Mark

The historic six-point Star of David is now on the Arab League’s boycott. A Swiss watch company, Ardath, which has been using the Star of David as a trade emblem for many years, has received an inquiry from the Arab League’s anti-Israel boycott committee, asking whether the emblem has any connection with Israel.

The boycott committee demands that Ardath eliminate its years-old emblem, threatening that, otherwise, the firm’s watches will be banned from import into Arab countries.
