Trade delegation mission to Israel and Palestine: profession reacts

Comment

This visit is more than "insensitive" It is grotesque. There are thousands of piles of rubble which used to be homes in Gaza where Israel is frustrating the delivery of reconstruction materials; refusing to participate in the post conflict investigation by the UN; declaring homes "illegal" and demolishing homes in east Jerusalem (the owners have to pay for the pleasure); vindictively refusing development permits to all but Israeli jews; making rights to remain an oppressive bureaucratic instrument for only Palestinian families. The list goes on. Is this really a suitable environment for a trade mission? Architects need to wake up and take responsibility for their actions. Keep away and press for change.
