Arab League Mulls Boycotts Against General Motors, Ford, Coca-cola

Arab governments would ban the sale of General Motors cars in their countries if reports that General Motors was building an assembly plant in Israel proved true, according to the chief of the Arab Boycott Bureau in Beirut.

The announcement, received here today, said that the question would be considered October 26 at a conference in Kuwait, along with similar charges against the Ford Motor Company and the Coca-Cola Company.

(General Motors’ Israeli agent, Leo Goldberg, announced in Tel Aviv last week that the Detroit firm has made a “concrete offer” to Israel to invest in a car assembly plant in the country.)
