The Arab League office of anti-Israel boycott regulations today announced a ban on all movies and phonograph records made by Frank Sinatra.

The League said it had definitely established that the Hollywood actor-singer “participates in the distribution of Israel bonds and that he exerts efforts for the collection of funds to be sent to Israel.”
