RIBA Council members travel to Israel and Palestine for talks on settlements


Dear Sirs, Israel does not fit within the remit of the RIBA International Committee delegation to assist" communities that face civil conflict." The Palestinian situation is one of occupation and colonisation backed by military force, in which our fellow professionals play a central role in the design and building of illegal settlements. This was the focus of the RIBA March resolution, which it must now appear the RIBA top brass wishes to bury. Sir Alan Duncan, former Tory International Development Minister, recently condemned the actions of the Israeli Government saying that "the situation in the West Bank was akin to apartheid, and supporters of settlements were extremists".
