We call on those Palestinians and Arabs invited to this event to boycott the Zionist Congress scheduled for this spring.
The official spokesperson of the Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine stated the following:
We say no to Arab and Palestinian participation in the Zionist “Herzlia Congress,” held every year by leaders and intellectuals from the “Expansionist State of Israel” under the banner of “The strategy of the security, politics and economics of the state of Israel.”
Herzlia has taken place every year since 2000, but until 2003 no Arab or Palestinian had ever participated. However in 2004, 2007 and 2010 — behind our people’s backs — leaders of the Palestine National Authority took part in it.
We call all on those Arabs and members of the National authority who were invited to boycott the “Zionist Herzlia Congress” planned for the spring of this year.
On the eve of the congress we will announce the names of the participants to our people and other Arab peoples.
