Poetry readings tend not to be very exciting, so why not spice one up with grainy footage of rock-throwing Palestinians? That's what Culture Minister Miri Regev did when she argued that the state should cut its funding to the Jaffa Theatre.

Haaretz satirist Assaf Harel makes some suggestions for adding even more excitement to Regev's claims that a solidary event for Dareen Tatour - an Arab-Israeli poet who has been charged with incitement and has been under house arrest for two years - was in fact "a stage for terrorism."
