Anti-Israeli Arab theater wants EU to waste taxpayers' money to fund their propaganda

After the education ministry announced they'll no longer fund sources that promote anti-Israelist propaganda, an Arabic theater's turning to a tragically reliable movement that's bound to give them all the money they want:
An Arab theater in Haifa plans to appeal to the European Union for funding its productions after Education Minister Naftali Bennett announced that the state would no longer subsidize its activities in protest of a play that he claimed glorifies terrorism, Channel 2 reported on Saturday.

The Al-Midan Theater made headlines in recent weeks after Bennett ordered a halt to funding due to the staging of A Parallel Time, a play based on the life of Walid Daka, an Israeli Arab who is serving a life sentence in prison for the murder of IDF soldier Moshe Tamam.

The artistic community in Israel has been up in arms over Culture Minister Miri Regev’s vow to slash state subsidies to cultural institutions that “delegitimize” the state.

Regev told the Knesset plenum on Monday that anyone who wants to defame Israel will do it without the government’s help or funding.

Regev’s speech came a day after a conference of artists protested her decision to defund Jaffa-based Elmina Theater, for Jewish and Arab teens, after its founder, Norman Issa, in his capacity as an actor with the Haifa Theater, refused to perform in Jordan Valley settlements over the Green Line.
I'd say that theater group is basically adhering to socialism - they want others to give them money instead of proving their ability to earn it on their own. If the US government doesn't usually fund Hollywood, why should other governments do it? I get the vibe that the paper's staff are hostile to the Israeli government's wishes not to fund these anti-Israeli groups, and think bad people are entitled to the public's money. Which would only make them socialists by extension.

It's time to start saving money on showbiz projects that aren't worth anything and use it for far better ideas.
