Unique 8/1974 American mail to Israel misrouted via Bahrain; refused service & returned
16071286
Bahranian postal boycott of Israel: 16 AUG 1974 large airmail printed-matter cover from Temple University PHILADELPHIA to Weizman Institute REHOVOT, meter franked 78c; mis-routed via BAHRAIN, where front-stamped 20 AU 74 MANAMA arrival + marked in manuscript "No Service to Israel" & returned to sender; manuscript crossed-out on arrival & resent to Israel. This is the only known example of "no service" mail to Israel via Bahrain. Locale had already refused to accept mail from Israel in 1959 (19 Aug.), while still a British dependency; here Bahrain independent as of 1971. Of note: a high proportion of letters to sensitive research facilities in Israel appear to have been mis-routed via Arab countries as seen in the collection of no-service mails displayed in this sale.

Though not backstamped, as transit time was c. 2 weeks to Iran, this cover is earliest known with official Iranian marking of suspended service; less than 30 examples known such marked.

10/1984 Tanzanian airmail to Israel (no postal relations); routed to Iran & refused service
16771289
Unusual postal link / Iranian postal boycott of Israel: 8 [unclear - OCT?] 1984 airmail stationary cover from DAR ES SALAAM Tanzania (no return address) to Israeli civilian PETACH TIKVA, franked 1.55TSh & tied by 2 strikes of local postmark; unusual postal connection & routing as Tanzania cut diplomatic links with Israel in 1973 (renewed 1995) - unlike Chad, there was no record of discreet back-channel relations during the period of cut ties: a possible mistake in identifying the destination, the cover was routed to/via IRAN (which retained postal relations with Israel until 1982), where backstamped 24 OCT 1984 TEHRAN transit + 2x larger TEHRAN 'bridge' datestamps in Arabic & Urdu, but as no postal relations now with Israel, transit stopped - but cover not marked by standard English or Farsi instructional marking (eg. K-Type-Ia); instead dispatched back to sender (backstamped 26 NOV 1984 TEHRAN return-dispatch). Front is manuscript marked in Arabic (eg. not Farsi) "Palestine, Israel" - either applied in Iran or Tanzania + possible censor mark (reminiscent to Iranian digits within circle type). Very oddly routed cover; unique. Slit open at left.

12/2000 Palestinian Authority airmail refused service by Israel during 2nd Intifada
23171290
2000-2001 2nd Intifada Israeli "no service" of Palestinian Authority outbound mail: 31-12-2000 new years eve registered airmail cover from TULKARM to QANTARA (Sinai, Egypt), franked 650 Fils & tied by 2 strikes of the local German-made metal postmark; here posted three months into the 2nd Intifada period: refused service by Israel, which handled PA mail abroad (as it is not a member of the Universal Postal Union, UPU), and which during the period of December 2000 and March 2001 refused postal service abroad to the PA - and returned it to sender; backstamped 10-01-2001 101 REGISTERED CENTRAL SORTING [RAMALLAH] transit where the cover was marked on the front with a special "protest" 5-lined boxed handstamp of the PA Ministry of Posts "We apologise for not being able to forward this post to Arab countries due to the Occupation Authority's refusal to allow it". As a matter of procedure in any case this cover would have been refused service by Israel as it bore 125 "Mils" denominated "eagle" definitives: PA stamps had to be denominated in Fils and not in Mandate-era Mils.
