Arab Boycott of Arab-Israeli Conference


An Arab organization supporting boycotts of Israel has called to boycott a planned peace conference set to take place in Jericho. Both Israeli and Palestinian Authority-based NGOs are scheduled to take part in the conference. Among the participants will be representatives from the Peres Center for Peace.

Those calling for a boycott argued that the conference “is known to oppose the right of return and the end of the Israeli apartheid regime, and these positions oppose the goals of the Palestinian national struggle.”
