Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu spoke at a cabinet meeting on Sunday regarding the artist boycott of the new cultural center in the West Bank settlement city of Ariel.

"The State of Israel is facing a delegitimization campaign from different sources across the globe, including attempts to implement economic, academic and cultural boycotts. The last thing we need is a boycott attempt from within Israel. I do not wish to infringe upon the right of every artists to express his own opinion, but we do not need to fund boycotts and support them in any way," said Netanyahu.

"I am happy to hear that the respective theater companies have announced that the performances will continue as planned. This is the appropriate stance," he added.
