Letter calls on Israeli artists not to perform in Ariel

A group of well-known arts and entertainment figures issued a letter Friday to all theater actors, calling on them not to perform in Ariel and providing them with legal information regarding their rights to refuse performances in the West Bank settlement, reported Army Radio.
The letter was sent just prior to the opening of a new cultural center in Ariel. The center was scheduled to feature its first theater performance of the season next week.
In the letter, the artists stress that Ariel is not part of the sovereign territory of Israel and therefore, actors are not legally forced to perform there as part of their contract with the theater.
