Following the letter in which dozens of artists expressed refusal to preform in the new cultural center in the city of Ariel in Samaria, Ariel’s mayor Ron Nachman spoke with Israel National TV.

Nachman explained how this protest began, and determined that Ariel will not bear a grudge against actors who take back their decision to sign the letter (as some already have).

Mayor Nachman: Freeze Compensation a Joke

Nachman: Freeze Compensation a Joke

Reported: 09:59 AM – Aug/12/10

In an interview with Arutz 7, Ariel Mayor Ron Nachman called the amount of money approved earlier this week to compensate victims of the building freeze in Judea and Samaria “shameful.” The government decided to allocate NIS 3 million for the damages, but Nachman estimates that the true figure is at least ten times greater. The damages will not end in October, after the freeze expires, he says. “In the state of Israel there is a principle, that no one takes responsibility for failures,” like the freeze, he said, which was a major failure that accomplished nothing.
