Well Henry is right, these discussions do get out of control; I think because no one accepts working toward a middle, it is either this "You are with me or against me. . ." nothing in between. .
And this issue does foment hatred for everyone; Nothing is resolved with this. . . So . .
1)In not taking sides, you are taking sides, you simply want the situation to continue as is; would be the first issue;
1a) which is why there are no sides to take, we all should work to resolving this problem, understanding it deeply;
2) get rid of the bias, there is plenty of it;in fact that's all you get in the USA Media. . .
3) there is such a thing as Jewish Fundamentalism, look it up it is never mentioned, too embarrassing for most American Jews--, it is every bit as militant extreme as the other brand names we all know and love of the Fundamentalists. . .
4) Why should the Arts be thrown into this cause,?, how about people children dead every day in Africa, the Congo, 10 million dead over the past 14 years- from malnutrition, wars, genocide, diseases;
5) if you look, there is plenty of interesting works in the visual arts on the political Middle East; photographers;painters;
6) Composer Dror Feiler has works that are pro-Palestinian. He's the only one I know from youtube, and Issa Boulos, a Palestinian composer.
