Boycott Backlash: Group Calls to Stop Honoring Denmark


Poets for Israel, a group of artists, musicians, and poets that supports Jewish settlement in Judea and Samaria, has petitioned Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat to change the name of a central square in Jerusalem's Beit Hakerem neighborhood.

Denya Square's name should be changed, the group said, now that Denmark's largest bank has announced that it will no longer do business with Israel's Bank Hapoalim.
