New York bookseller bowed to Israel supporters after violent threats

Book Culture issued the statement in the wake of threats and intimidation because it was promoting a children’s book called P is for Palestine.

The petition, signed by 18 faculty members and almost 200 students, alumni and community members, accuses Book Culture of “bowing to pressure from pro-Israel groups that seek to silence literary representations of the Palestinian right to resist.”

“Book Culture’s suppression of literary freedom is profoundly demoralizing, especially given its stated allegiance to free speech and progressive values,” the petition adds.
