Warum die Prinzipien der BDS Bewegung so wichtig sind

The price of principles and Palestine

A British historian and feminist, for example, has turned down a million dollar prize for her work simply because of the award’s links with Israel. Citing the “politics of Israel-Palestine”, Catherine Hall, Professor of Modern British Social and Cultural History at University College London, rejected the Dan David Prize which came along with £690,000 for her work’s “impact on social history, as a pioneer in gender history, race, and slavery.” Prof. Hall also refused to attend the award ceremony in Tel Aviv a few days ago. In a statement, she said that she had declined the prize after having “many discussions with those who are deeply involved with the politics of Israel-Palestine, but with differing views as to how best to act.” She called the move an “independent political choice.”
