Hello I just want to add in my two cents worth. A hate fest targeting one individual is not a good way to win people over to a successful boycott and her page was full of hateful comments, just one example out of many: a person calling one of her supporters an "Israeli virus" a person who was American and happened to be Jewish and even as she stated she was American, this person went on about her being a "human virus" because she had "Jewish blood." The page was filled with such hateful comments as this directed at anyone being supportive. I am for Palestinian rights but demonizing a peace poet who sees alternative ways to peace besides cultural boycott is not a way to win people over to the cause. She was being intimidated, with threats to destroy her reputation, continually harassed 24/7. This has gotten totally out of hand.
