Letter to the Editor || The Pete Seeger I knew did not support blind boycotts
Seeger believed that people in conflict must learn to talk. Boycotting the Arava Institute would not help that aim.
In October 2010, I met with Mr. Pete Seeger at his home. He had been asked by the Arava Institute (AIES) to appear in a virtual rally to support the Institute. After having agreed to participate in the event, Mr. Seeger began to have doubts due to concerns regarding the relationship between the Institute and the Jewish National Fund.
