i am surprised by this display of violent righteousness by GL, a writer who seems to be hooting for peace. If that is the the israeli "Left", I can see how the "Right" can find itself "justified" by the violence it preaches and inflicts. The article imagines the situation is black and white, you either perform in illegal settlements all israelies fund via tax, and some are even required to defend via military service - or you are a humane cultural practitioner and boycott these dens of evil doings. Boycotting, not talking, disregarding other people - bad and wrong as they might be - is an ignorant violent act, that ignores complexities, and the world, in spite of all godly attempts, is colourful and full of lights of all sorts of shades.. GL, how you might feel about cultural practitioners and institutions who might perform in that stolen land called Ariel, and then donate all proceedings to a Ramallah theatre? Or such people, who might do it only if that was OKed by the Palestinian Authorities? Or maybe others, who performed in that despeakable place, but would not end the play, as a protest? There are many ways to show displeasure, boycott is one of the more violent - I hope your call, GL was out of a momentary sense of anger.
