Aside from the story appearing in the mainstream Hebrew & English press and on numerous websites and blogs, I have received e-mails and calls of support and inquiry from people wanting to take action, vent or write about the issue. One of the contacts came from a network television producer in the U.S.
This morning, webster Doug Fox of GreatDance.com e-mailed to inform that editors of the magazine in question have removed the Website’s list of dance companies by country originally showing Israel as absent. For the full text on it, read here.
Doug was encouraged by this move and his tone was upbeat. I’m not as optimistic.
But he did make a point worth noting about the speed with which the blog world banded together in protest over the issue. That is definitely worth looking at and thinking about in today’s world of global connectivity.
