Japanese Auto Firm Agrees to Market Cars in Israel; Defies Arab Boycott

Download PDF for this date

Japan’s second largest automobile manufacturers, the Nissan Co., has agreed to market its cars in Israel in defiance of the Arab League boycott with which, allegedly, it had hitherto complied. The change of policy was attributed here to pressure by American Jews. The Japanese firm has entered into partnership agreements with Eisenberg Enterprises and the Histadrut-owned “Noa” Co.
