How JK Rowling used Dumbledore’s example to explain her stance on Israel’s boycott

JK Rowling has used social media to prove yet again that the she is not someone to cross, as she shut down detractors who were using the Harry Potter references to slam her decision, by citing Dumbledore.
After hundreds of British academics said that they would boycott contact with Israeli universities over the state’s “intolerable human rights violations” towards Palestinians, Rowling and double Booker Prize-winning novelist Hilary Mantel, said cultural boycotts that singled out Israel were “divisive and discriminatory, and will not further peace”.

Rowling took to TwitLonger to elaborate her point against the cultural boycott after people criticised her stance with Potter references, comparing Israelis to the villain Voldemort and the Death Eaters. Some even went on to say that ‘Harry would be disappointed by her stance.’ She countered that with a post titled ‘Why Dumbledore went to the hilltop’. And she used the reference perfectly to make her point.
