Jordanian 'gentle' postal boycott of Israel: 29 FEB 1980 airletter from SAN ANTONIO to KIBBUTZ GINNEGAR, pre-franked 22c & tied by local machine cancel; this mis-routed via JORDAN: at this time less politically charged postal markings used to refuse service, so marked with "UNSUFFICIENT(sic) ADDRESS" instructional marking handstamp (same type used on any mis-addressed mail) + red Arabic manuscript notation "Return to sender Israel!" & returned to sender; this resent & backstamped 2-5-80 GINNEGAR arrival. Few examples of postal boycott mail from Jordan exist since 1980s; this only example known stamped such.

Chadian postal boycott of Israel: 29-8-1980 airmail commercial cover from JERUSALEM to local addressee MOUSSORO Chad, franked 27.15L during new "[Old] Shekel" currency period (starting 22 Feb 1980 - here worth 2.715 IS) & tied by 2 strikes of JERUSALEM-27 postmark (the customs section of the main postage depot in Givat Shaul - a rare department); at this time Chad under Libyan attack/occupation since 22 March (3rd Libyan incursion in Chadian-Libyan conflict/civil war of 1978-87) & capital captured 16 Dec.; cover received & stamped twice "relations suspended | return to sender" using French-language handstamp K-Type-I & returned undelivered: unclear if this is a result of Chad's suspension of relations with Israel as of Sept. 1972 (under Saudi-Libyan influence) or as a result of the then-present military crisis - the latter most likely as Chad continued to maintain discreet & close military with Israel from 1972 onward. Very unusual postal link; this is the only known example of the Chadian postal boycott, rare as from war/occupation period + Israeli currency change reflected in the postage rate. A rare instance of direct mail from Israel being refused service at the destination (and not at local post office of dispatch).

Iranian postal boycott of Israel: 17-12-1982 airmail commercial cover from KARLSRUHE to Nuclear Research Center YAVNE, meter franked 1.30DM; routed via IRAN (as postal relations with Israel existed until some time in 1982) but cover now marked by TEHRAN Post Office with English instructional marking handstamp K-Type-Ia "THEREIS(sic) NO POSTAL RELATIONS | BETWEEN IRANAND(sic) ISRAEL" & returned to sender. 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. Here ironic address.

Unusual postal link / Iranian postal boycott of Israel: 6 [unclear] 1984 airmail cover from DAR ES SALAAM to PETACH TIKVA, franked 1.55TSh & tied by unclear machine cancel; unusual postal connection & routing as Tanzania cut diplomatic links with Israel in 1973 (renewed 1995) - unlike Chad (see above), no record of discreet relations during the period of cut ties: here cover routed via IRAN (which retained postal relations with Israel until 1982), where backstamped 24 OCT 1984 TEHRAN transit 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 "Palestine, Israel" - either applied in Iran or Tanzania + possible censor mark (reminiscent to Iranian digits within circle type). Very oddly routed cover as Egypt had relations with Israel & much more direct route than eastwards towards Iran (to where would it have been tranmitted from there?).

Iranian postal boycott of Israel: c. OCT 1986 airmail cover from TEHRAN to HEBRON "Israel/West Bank", franked 45R & tied by unclear machine cancel; as postal relations with Israel "officially" suspended in late 1982, cover transmission halted & marked by rare Farsi instructional marking handstamp K-Type-III "BACK TO SENDER | THERE IS NO POSTAL SERVICE CONNECTION" + Iranian censor (#7) cachet & returned to sender, backstamped 1 OCT 1986 arrival. This is the only cover known with this "no service" Type-III marking in Farsi (possibly used only on domestically originating mail), obtained from former emigre who subsequently left. Vertical fold.
