Israeli artists petition ‘anti-democratic’ moves by Culture Minister Regev

"I don’t intend to engage in conversations through petitioning," Culture and Sports Minister Miri Regev said Sunday in response to a petition led by cultural influencers against her.

Over 1,500 Israeli artists signed a petition against Regev and the Cultural Ministry following a political storm last week following Arab Israeli actor Norman Issa’s refusal to participate in a performance of the Haifa Theater’s Boomerang production in the Jordan Valley, over the Green Line

The protesters’ petition accused Regev of involvement in "the anti-democratic moves instigated by governmental organizations."
