Two Belgian Travel Agencies Blacklisted by Arab League Countries

Officials of two Belgian travel agencies expressed surprise today over reports that they had been blacklisted by the Arab League Boycott Committee in Beirut for violating the boycott.

The officials of Agence Isbel and Voyages Istra said the two agencies specialized in travel between Belgium and Israel, had nothing to do with the Arab countries and had no commercial relations with Arab travel agencies. It appeared that the only likely explanation for the boycott action was that the owners of both companies were Jews.
