Dubai hailed after refusing to allow Jewish tycoon to open jewelry stores

Abstract: 

Days after Israeli billionaire Lev Leviev publicly announced plans to open two new jewelry stores in Dubai this year, a high-level Dubai government official said that Leviev had no trade license to open a store in the Emirate. The recent report in Dubai's Gulf News, followed a flurry of media coverage of the call by Palestinians and New York activists for Dubai to boycott Leviev's businesses over his companies' settlement construction in the Israeli-occupied West Bank.
