“Harry Potter” author J. K. Rowling tweeted some of her fans, angry at her opposition to the Boycott Israel movement, that she had “never heard of a cultural boycott ending a bloody and prolonged conflict.”

Rowling is far from a pro-Israel advocate, but her joining 150 other British artists to sign a published letter opposing BDS raised the hackles of the anti-Israel crowd.

Her tweet was a reply to “a number of readers asking for more information about why I am not joining a cultural boycott of Israel, “which she said would be felt by the Israeli government but not by “ordinary Israelis.”

Have no fears that Rowling actually is pro-Israel.

She tweeted that she has “deplored most of Mr. Netanyahu’s actions in office.”

In reply to the anti-boycott letter published in the Guardian, approximately 35 British scholars bought space for a full-page advertisement in the newspaper to state they are “deeply disturbed by Israel’s illegal occupation of Palestinian land, the intolerable human rights violations that it inflicts on all sections of the Palestinian people…”
