Israeli artists boycott new $11m theater in settlement

Ariel theater, West BankAn artists' boycott of a $11 million performing arts center opening Monday in the Jewish settlement of Ariel is giving a new twist to a pressing question -- where should Israel's permanent borders run?

Leading Israeli playwrights, actors and artists say they will not cross the "Green Line" -- Israel's frontier before it captured the West Bank in 1967 -- to perform in the new theater in Ariel, an Israeli enclave of 19,000 people.
