Isolating Israel The Arab League has decided to strengthen the Arab boycott of Israel, and to try to stop the process of normalization of Arab/ Israeli relations. Egypt, Jordan, and Palestinians have been exempted from this declaration, since they have all already signed agreements with Israel... but countries such as Morocco, Tunisia, Qatar and others, which have been working toward a rapprochement with Israel, are being encouraged to stop their negotiations. Economists say that this action would adversely affect both Israelis and Palestinians. NPR's Ted Clark reports.
