Clash with Regev intensifies with actor’s controversial ‘animals’ remark

Hundreds of actors and representatives from cultural institutions gathered at a meeting in Jaffa on Sunday where they continued their protest against Culture and Sport Minister MIri Regev.

Actor and director Oded Cotler’s speech at the meeting stirred controversy Monday, prompting responses from politicians and members of the arts community

"Imagine your world silent, Ms. Regev, without books, music, poems," he said. "A world where there is nothing to disturb the nation from celebrating thirty Knesset seats followed by a herd of animals eating their grass."
