Abstract: 

This study discusses the use of Arab oil as an instrument of pressure against countries which supported the Israeli war effort during the Arab-Israeli armed conflict of October 1973. The author argues that the Arab oil embargo was an instrument for the respect and promotion of the rule of law in international relations at a time when international organisations failed to implement applicable legal principles to the Middle East conflict.
