Scottish Palestine Solidarity Campaign against Israeli Embassy Donation

That the Parliament notes with concern the campaign by the Scottish Palestine Solidarity Campaign (SPSC) against the Stills Gallery in Edinburgh for accepting a donation from the Israeli embassy in London; notes that the gallery was exhibiting photographic works by international artists in an exhibition entitled, A Thousand of Him, Scattered: Relative Newcomers in Diaspora; understands that the embassy donated £1,300 as part of its support for Israeli artists' work abroad, after which its logo was added to the list of corporate sponsors; acknowledges that the Israeli artist, Yael Bartana, whose work was to be supported by the donation, is a vocal critic of Israel's treatment of Palestinians, and believes that through its campaign the SPSC has shown itself to be a thoroughly discredited organisation driven more by a hatred of Israel than a desire to support Palestinians.
