Culture and Sport Minister Limor Livnat announced Sunday that her ministry will introduce an amendment to the law that will force theater companies to provide services regardless of geographic location.

Livnat told Israel Radio that the artists who call on others not to perform at the cultural center in Ariel are effectively giving the Palestinians ammunition. She said the handful of artists who are boycotting performing at the cultural center are boycotting Israeli citizens who pay taxes just like all other citizens.

The culture minister added that the artists' statement that they are boycotting Ariel and not the people of Ariel is "pathetic" and said all theater company managers announced that actors will continue to perform wherever there are Israeli citizens.
