Background: Arab visitors to Britain, France and Belgium will be closely scrutinised to see that they do not buy goods from shops blacklisted under Arab anti-Israeli boycott regulations.
This was announced on Monday (29 July) by the Commissioner-General of Israel Offices, Mohammed Maghoub, at the 36th Arab Boycott conference at the Lebanese resort of Aley near Beirut.
Mr. Maghoub said people of different Arab nationalities would be Posted in front of various blacklisted stores to "spot their countrymen and detect them." Among the stores listed were Marks and Spencer and Selfridges in Britain, Galerie Lafayette and Grand Magasin in France and Grand Magasin and Brisynic Albrex in Belgium.
Mr. Maghoub had already revealed plans to closely inspect the luggage of Arab travellers returning from the three Western European countries.
Delegates from most of the Arab countries attended the 12-day conference except The People's Democratic Republic of Yemen.
Dr. Nazih Bizri, Lebanese Minister of Economy, who opened the conference, said: "Our battle against Israel and world zionism will stop only with the recovery of the usurped rights in palestine."
