NY Daily News – Alice Walker has refused to allow a new Hebrew translation of her Pulitzer-winning novel, “The Color Purple” to be published in Israel, which she says is “guilty of apartheid and persecution of the Palestinian people.”

Walker, 68, has long been a member of the boycott, divest and sanction movement, which wants Israel ostracized economically and culturally on the international stage until it changes its policies toward the Palestinian residents of Gaza and the West Bank.
