Zionist Intellectual terrorism claims another victim : CanStage won't stage My Name is Rachel Corrie

category offaly | rights, freedoms and repression | other press author Tuesday December 26, 2006 21:08author by David K. - Ireland Palestine Solidarity Campaign Report this post to the editors

CanStage boardmember Jack Rose admitted he had neither read nor seen the play but said: "My view was it would provoke a negative reaction in the Jewish community"

A play featuring the writings of the late American peace activist Rachel Corrie: “My Name is Rachel Corrie” has been cancelled at a Canadian Theatre in what can only be described as contemptible self censorship. The Canadian theatre company CanStage has done a three monkeys and pulled down the Iron Curtain of censorship down on it by announcing its cancelling plans to present the play in Toronto : Can stage, won't stage, exit stage.

Rachel was twenty-three years old when she was deliberately crushed to death by an Israeli Caterpillar bulldozer in Gaza in March 2003. Earlier this year, the New York Theatre Workshop drew international outrage when it backed out of an agreement to stage the play. The Theatre Workshop cited complaints about the play’s criticism of Israeli policy in the Occupied Territories. It appears similar concerns have led to the CanStage decision. In an interview with Variety magazine, CanStage boardmember Jack Rose admitted he had neither read nor seen the play but said: "My view was it would provoke a negative reaction in the Jewish community.

"Twenty Israeli military vehicles stormed Umm Salamuna Village south of Bethlehem to protect four military bulldozers. The bulldozers were massive and there to bulldoze Palestinian land for Wall construction. What they needed protecting from was the nonviolent demonstration that farmers and residents began in order to save their land."

And the response to the protestors is much the same as ever.

"Six Palestinians were injured, including 70 year old farmer Mousa Mohammad. Israeli soldiers beat him in the head with clubs."
