RIBA councillor slams delegation to Israel


Boycott, what boycott? The RIBA is neither boycotting Israel nor Israeli architects. The motion carried by Council simply asks the International Union of Architects to ask the Israeli Institute to respond to Resolution 13 which it passed in 2005, or face suspension, bringing to light an issue of professional ethics. And that's all. The only boycotts are by Jewish organisations against the RIBA in response to the RIBA's refusal to be complicit in what the UN defines as a war crime. Let's get real shall we. There is quite properly a limit to the RIBA's influence, which is why it shouldn't venture into the field of "international working groups" attempting to act as a mediator. Quite properly, as part of its core commitment to architecture and architects, it .already presses for improvements to the planning system. George Oldham.
