Too good to be true, so it wasn't - Saudi Boycott of Israel still in force despite WTO membership

December 23, 2005

Remember this:??

Saudis almost end Israel boycott  - Reports that Saudi Arabia are withdrawing from the Arab boycott are not quite true. Zionism is still a dirty word in Riyadh. More

The Washington Times had reported:

Amity with Israel opens WTO door
By John Zarocostas
Published November 12, 2005

GENEVA -- Saudi Arabia has agreed to end all economic boycotts of Israel, allowing the World Trade Organization (WTO) yesterday to admit the oil-rich kingdom as its 149th member, diplomats said.

However,  it probably wasn't true. as I pointed out.

The official denial is below. So either Saudi Arabia fooled the WTO or the World Trade organization wanted to be fooled. Where oh where are are the all-powerful Elders of Zion with their horns and tails, the ones who supposedly run the world, when we need them?

First-Degree Boycott of Israel to Continue

[Arab news is a Saudi Arabian government publication.]
Arab News
JEDDAH, 22 December 2005 - Saudi Arabia announced yesterday that it would maintain its first-degree boycott of Israeli products despite joining the World Trade Organization (WTO).

An official at the Commerce and Industry Ministry denied reports that the Kingdom had lifted the boycott. "The Kingdom has lifted only the second and third degree boycott of Israel in accordance with a decision taken by the GCC summit 10 years ago," the official said, adding that the Saudi accession to WTO was not linked to the lifting of the boycott.
