Kuwait Oil Boycott Hits Holland; Jordan Boycotts European Airlines

Following Algeria, Kuwait today announced an oil boycott of Holland because of Holland’s “hostile attitude toward Arab rights.” The Kuwait oil stoppage will hit this country much harder than Algeria’s because Holland depends on Kuwait for 30 percent of its oil, Algeria supplies only one-and-a-half percent.

In a related development, Jordan announced today the boycott of the Dutch airline KLM which it accused of flying American and European volunteers to Israel. The Jordanian boycott also hits Air France, Lufthansa and Sabena.
