Why should we respect the views of the Ritblats on a matter they clearly cannot see with any impartiality? Isreali architects are building on illegally occupied land. This is a fact. The RIBA must stand up for good, ethical architecture and respect the vote that has been passed. The parallels with Apartheid era South Africa are chilling and the rebuttals that regime gave to all criticism of its "separate development" horrors are being repeated today in full measure. Some backbone, please, Mr President.
