Sally Rooney has turned down a translation offer from an Israeli-based publishing house because of her stance on the Israel-Palestine conflict.
Two reports earlier this year “confirmed what Palestinian human rights groups have long been saying: Israel’s system of racial domination and segregation against Palestinians meets the definition of apartheid under international law,” Rooney wrote.
