Regev: We won’t fund those who slander Israel

Anyone who wants to defame Israel will do it without the government’s help or funding, Culture and Sport Minister Miri Regev said in the Knesset Monday, responding to a no-confidence motion by the Joint List titled “Harm to Culture for Political Reasons.”

Regev’s speech came a day after a conference of artists protesting her decision to defund Jaffa-based Elmina Theater, for Jewish and Arab teens, after its founder, Normal Issa, in his capacity as an actor with the Haifa Theater, refused to perform in the Jordan Valley, because it is over the Green Line.
