Israeli Actors Protest Scottish Festival Ban


Israeli actors on Saturday responded to a discriminatory cancellation of their show at Scotland's Edinburgh Festival Fringe, performing a silent version of their hour-long play while confronted by around 200 anti-Israel protesters.

The Israeli acting troupe, named Incubator Theater, held an entirely silent version of their "hip-hop opera" which normally features rap at Bristo Square in Edinburgh, not far from Reid Hall where they scheduled to perform, reports The Scotsman. They were faced by a rowdy crowd of roughly 200 anti-Israel activists who booed and chanted during the show.
