    It is interesting that the first boycott by Israelis against the settlers is by artists, but this profession allows them to be less inhibited. For a similar reason, foreign artists are the first to boycott Israel for the sin of occupation. A boycott by Israelis is appropriate because it allows the citizenry to express its true opinion, which the Knesset has a more difficult time doing due to political considerations. The boycott should be more widespread, and not only for cultural events. People who are against the occupation should not employ or give work to settlers, thus allowing them to maintain their harmful "lifestyle". Let the people of Israel speak out in a way the settlers can hear. Of course, the theater companies as organizations being supported by the State will not be able to participate. They will put up performances with replacement actors. The settlers will see B-level shows, but the most important thing is for them to know what Israelis think of them.
