Growing pressure on RIBA over 'dismissed' Israel motion


Whilst we probably agree for the most part on many simpler and less contentious political issues at a national level (particularly those that are included within the stated RIBA objectives - such as lobbying government for quality housing); I certainly never joined the RIBA expecting them to make any contentious political comment at an international level. I’m not even sure the RIBA is politically astute enough to have a motion here even if they have the powers. I do however believe the RIBA need to be clear here as the Palestine Architects Society seem to imply that the RIBA either supports them or is against them. If the RIBA are to have these sorts of political positions then more transparency is needed by many other groups. For example does the Palestine Architects Society support Hamas?
