Arab League Blacklists Three U.S. Freighters for Trading with Israel

Download PDF for this date

The Arab League boycott office has notified United States officials that three American freighters will henceforth be barred from all Arab seaports because the ships traded with Israel. The Arabs made clear that the blockade is being tightened and that any American ship discovered trading with Israel will be punished by being immediately blacklisted.

The three newest additions to the blacklist were the Ike(7,209 tons), Marine Voyager (7, 667 tons) and Exanthia (6. 533 tons). At the same time the Arabs said the American ship Courer D’Alene Victory (7, 645 tons) was removed from the blacklist on assurance of its American owners it would obey the boycott of Israel and avoid all Israeli ports.
