Shame 2.0: Why does Israel Irshad Manji vs Mehdi Hasan: 2 days ago   25:20

Al Jazeera English
Ridicule, threats of bodily harm, and scorn – this is what Israeli actress and playwright Einat Weizman endured for participating in art and activism focused on Israel-Palestine politics.

In the docu-play “Shame 2.0”, Weizman and Palestinian actor Morad Hassan explore the difficulties of producing politically-driven theatre, and the challenges they have faced because of their beliefs and backgrounds.

Einat and Morad share their narratives in individual monologues, recounting the hurdles they had to overcome to progress their respective careers in a contentious political climate. In each performance, Weizman and Morad are periodically interrupted by news footage of Israeli culture minister Miri Regev, whose efforts to pull government funding from organisations or events deemed disloyal to the state has been criticised as a form of censorship.

In this episode, Morad Hassan, Einat Weizman, and Shame 2.0 actress Colleen Delany discuss how they are using the production to highlight obstacles artists and activists must overcome to break down barriers in Israel and the occupied territories.

That Sebastian guy in the reply section . People there is always more room to be , But ffs own your beliefs and positions to the end. If the price to preserve Israel's Zionist identity is you being an indifferent fascist whatever the cost...just admit it .
Censoring art has no justification whatsoever

If you compare from when Islam began(circa 700a.d.) , Jews were treated better in Islamic empires than they were in the Christian empires . The Islamic empire ending during and after ww1 . And then you have to take into consideration the Nazi Holocaust later and the Roman Empire and European Dark Ages where also Jews were treated so badly by Christian kingdoms, empires and lands . Then why do Israelis blame it all on the Palestinians and Muslims in general ?
