Palestinian architects call on Hodder not to back down on Israeli motion


Let's make some clarification here. The RIBA "Resolution" of council meeting on 19th March stands. There is so much misreporting about this, for example as referred to above;- "After the meeting, which was also attended by RIBA international vice president Peter Oborn, Lipovetsky-Lir said: ‘He [Hodder] and vice president Oborn said they are not supporting the motion; absolutely.'" The truth to this "Quotation" is that it is incorrect as Peter Oborn has written to Mr Lipovetsky-Lir refuting this information "...We were particularly disappointed that your comments appear to have informed a story that there are plans to overturn the resolution that had been passed by RIBA Council. We did not say this. We told you that the resolution had since been forwarded to the UIA whose response we await" Just to be clear that the RIBA stand united on the RIBA Resolution as also confirmed by Stephen Hodder PRIBA yesterday. Let's think positive and move on.
