Well put Lior
So many people have so much negative criticism, without an inkling of understanding of the basics, of a complex situation in the region. Most, without ever spending a day in Israel.
Lets cut to the chase here; There is currently a resurgence wave of anti Semitism throughout UK and Europe, that people are blinded by media rhetoric, propaganda and simple lack of basic knowledge of the situation on the ground and region, that any chance to condemn Israel or Jews, they jump on the band wagon,...synonymous of Hitler whipping up the public frenzy.
But for RIBA to get so politically embroiled, albeit so one-sided, is a real shame for the profession. Soon we'll have RIBA dishing out brown shirts.....and suggesting where we should march...!
The comment above is so appropriate, I feel compelled to repeat it: "RIBA should put the same amount of energy to promote change within our outdated and dysfunction planning system in the UK instead of fighting foreign wars it does not understand and can't possibly win".

Perhaps Mr Oldham should focus on and take his own delegation to Syria or Iraq to see if there is anything he could oppose to in the region. Stop for a cuppa tea with ISIS on the way.
Easy to condemn from a sheltered environment George. Go spend some time in the region and perhaps you may learn a thing or two,....or not!
