A Paris museum — subsidized by the French government — opened an exhibition of photos of Palestinian suicide bombers, that the museum calls “freedom fighters,” the France 24 website reports today (June 12, 2013).
The exhibition of 68 photos — entitled “Death” by Ahlam Shibli — opened on May 28 at the Jeu de Paume Museum of Contemporary Art in Paris.
The museum’s website describes suicide bombers as “those who lost their lives fighting against the (Israeli) occupation,” and the exhibition as being about “the efforts of Palestinian society to preserve their presence.”
According to CRIF (Representative Council of the Jewish Institutions in France) — the umbrella body of French Jewish communities — the people commemorated in the photos are “mostly from the [Fatah-affiliated] al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigades, the Izz ad-Din al-Qassam Brigades [of Hamas], and the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine.” All three are designated by the European Union as terrorist groups.
France… another soon to be Islamic state… What else should we expect?
