    An exciting development, not only because Dareen Tatour deserves the support, but also because it seems to indicate a change of direction of Pen America, now under the controversial leadership of Susanne Nossel. In addition to strongly supporting Dareen, PEN America earlier refused Israeli funding due to pressure from the movement for Palestinian rights.
    Nossel promoted military “humanitarian interventions” while at the US State Department under Hillary Clinton, and NATO’s war efforts in Afghanistan while at Amnesty International.

    Thanks for update article – I share Dareen’s story with my Quaker poetry group. Her story will reach hearts!

    The Tatour trial is a farce. She should never have been charged.
