Before people sign this petition it might be a good idea to 
check how widespread support for it is under Palestinian 
artists. As of 2 months ago some of the mixed 
Palestinian/Israeli festivals and other art initiatives were 
still going strong. This may well have changed in the last few 
weeks (and/or those initiatives may be part of this boycott 
petition), but it would be a shame to boycott one of the last 
cooperative efforts out of existence...
