I am really missing something. Walter says:
"The play's producers didn't just ask the Zionists and then cave in when the
Zionists gave their (presumed) disapproval. As we read, they tried to promote a
broad public discussion of what had happened to Rachel Corrie within the city of
New York, a very good thing."
There was NO discussion, broad, public, or otherwise. There was an inquiry
made to NY Zionists, and a decision made based solely on their opinion.
In one of the stories below the coeditor of the London play says:
"I can only guess at the pressures of funding an independent theatre company in New York, but calling this production 'postponed' does not disguise the fact that it has been cancelled,' Mr Rickman said in a statement.
Now even without funding pressures the head of NYTW is so obviously a naive,
apolitical fool that he might have caved in anyway. But the fact remains he
made his decision based upon the wishes of the NY Zionist community.
