    Israel gets huge aid from the US. One wonders if that's why Israel apparently stages immoral plays in Tel Aviv - I saw the headline in today's Haaretz online but I was not interested to read the article titled: "On the Whys & Wherefores of Sexual Experimentation", described as a filmmaker's stage version of a story "about a young woman who engages in homosexual and group sex in search of herself". Is that the kind of play they like in the US? One might even wonder if Israel is blackmailed into putting on that kind of immoral trash. For why else, would Israel, situated in the midst of the Middle East, surrounded by conservative Muslim countries, want to put on a play which would obviously be offensive to Muslims, and therefore would be likely to provoke dislike of Israel by the surrounding Muslim countries? Are people who put on plays like that purposely aiming to alienate Israel from the rest of the Middle East, or have a "don't care what they think" attitude, are they stark raving mad, or what???
