2006 Report for Congress on the Arab boycott of
Israel The Arab League has maintained an official boycott of
Israeli companies and Israeli-made goods since the founding of Israel in 1948.
The United States actively opposes the boycott and works on both bilateral and
multilateral fronts to end it. The U.S. government also enforces laws that
prohibit U.S. firms from participating in the boycott. This report will be
updated as events warrant.
