Very good--except for their saying they have no objection to staging  
one of the plays in Hebrew.  They ignore the fact that modern Hebrew,  
the Zionist state language, is in and of itself an intentional act of  
*antisemitic* cultural genocide that is succeeding in the destruction  
of the national language of the Jewish people, the ancestral mother  
tongue of the majority of Jewish Israelis, Yiddish.  If the genocide  
has reached the point that there are no longer enough actors to  
perform Shakespeare in Yiddish there are enough old Shakespeare films  
from the Yiddish theatre that one of them could be put on instead.
