Exporting Radical Israeli Pseudo-history as "Culture"

Bad news.  The elitist subversion of Israel continues unabated.  The weapon this time: theater. Leftist culture will be off to the UK:

Israeli play to be performed in British National Theater

Israel's national theater Habima makes an unprecedented achievement: In May 2010, an Israeli Hebrew-language play will be performed at the British National Theater for the first time in history.

In meetings with Habima Theater’s artistic director, Ilan Ronen, it was agreed to stage two plays in London and in Tel Aviv in 2010, which would deal with the British Mandate era and its implications on the complex political reality between Israel and the Palestinians.

According to Haaretz's Tzipi Shochat in her report of Oct. 16, the meeting at which the decision was taken was also attended by David Grossman and Zev Sternhel.  Grossman is a firm Peace Now person, author of the "Yellow Time" and Sternhel we all know is an anticolonialist.

Three left-wingers do not a fair presentation make of the Mandate period and the issue of the "Palestinians", which Haaretz termed "the political conflict between Jews and Palestinians", not Arabs please note!

And so, while our unruly youngsters fool around with Arab olive pickers and their supporters from intenrational volunteer brigades, the Left will be making ideological inroads abroad, undercutting Israel's ability to defend itself.
