They Hate ‘Progressive’ Israelis, Too
n anti-Israel group called “Adalah” picketed a recent performance by the Batsheva Dance Company at the Brooklyn Academy of Music. The most interesting aspect of the controversy is that the anti-Israel activists were undeterred by the fact that the dance troupe’s director has himself accused Israel of committing “war crimes.” postscript:
Clarification: Batsheva Dance Company NEVER boycotted Ariel.
Still, the question remains does Ohad Naharin believe that Judea and Samaria is "occupied Palestinian Land" and support the BDS protesters to Free Palestine? Does Art transcend truth?
Apparently Ohad Naharin art director, dancer and choreographer http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ohad_Naharin of Batsheva Dance Company supports the Palestinian cause more than the Jewish Settlers.
It is not Palestine that they really want but rather the destruction of Israel as well as the freedom of artistic expression he so much loves.
I doubt his dance company would be very well received by Hamas, Hizbollah, Fatah, Abbas and Nasrallah etc.
