Left-of-center people frequently seem to me to manage to demonstrate a remarkable sense of illogic when they express themselves.
As in this case:
One of the actresses, Sarit Vino-Elad, said she could not bring herself to step foot in a theater built on occupied land and which posed an obstacle to peace with Palestinians. "This is not a boycott. It''s my own little protest against a government policy that continues to build settlements," she told The Associated Press. "They are trying to make Ariel part of the consensus, but as far as I am concerned it is not legitimate. You want me to perform there? Solve the problem."
would appear to have a problem that would be difficult to solve.
Ms. Vino, let me explain:
a. yes, you are boycotting.
b. Ariel is already pasrt of the consensus. For Arabs, Tel-Aviv is not yet part of the consensus.
c. The problem to solve is on the Arab side.
d. Live dangerously. Ask your friends to join you and boycott a performance in an Arab location to protest Arabs campaigning against IDF enlistment or the practice of ''honor killing''.
Ms. Vino, try being a patriotic Israeli. No staged appearances required.
