The Blind Leading the Heavily Armed

This is why there will never be peace in the Middle East: the Israeli ambassador to Sweden sees a piece of art with suicide bomber imagery and flips out, destroying the exhibit and endangering the lives of other patrons in the gallery.

I understand being emotional. But this guy couldn’t control himself long enough to critically analyze something that is admittedly “art.” He didn’t even read the accompanying text, that described the innocent lives lost.

Admittedly, I can’t understand what Israel is going through. Neither can I understand what the Palestinians have endured. But to lose control of your faculties in another country’s art gallery, and then be unrepentent and obstreperous about your behaviour, is absolutely inexcusable. The fact that Ariel Sharon completely supported his actions is the icing on the cake.

Perhaps if somebody showed some leadership and took the lessons of love in all those holy books to heart, we could see some actual progress. But what do I know, I’m agnostic.
