Too much Vino?

 

Left-of-center people frequently seem to me to manage to demonstrate a remarkable sense of illogic when they express themselves.
 
 
As in this case:
 
 
One of the actresses, Sarit Vino-Elad, said she could not bring herself to step foot in a theater built on occupied land and which posed an obstacle to peace with Palestinians.  "This is not a boycott. It's my own little protest against a government policy that continues to build settlements," she told The Associated Press. "They are trying to make Ariel part of the consensus, but as far as I am concerned it is not legitimate. You want me to perform there? Solve the problem."
 
 
She
 
 
 
 
 
would appear to have a problem that would be difficult to solve.
 
 
Ms. Vino, let me explain:
 
 
a.  yes, you are boycotting.
 
 
b.  Ariel is already pasrt of the consensus.  For Arabs, Tel-Aviv is not yet part of the consensus.
 
 
c.  The problem to solve is on the Arab side.
 
 
d.  Live dangerously.  Ask your friends to join you and boycott a performance in an Arab location to protest Arabs campaigning against IDF enlistment or the practice of 'honor killing'.
 
 
Ms. Vino, try being a patriotic Israeli.  No staged appearances required.
