“The Judeocentric ideology of psychoanalysis is ultimately an ideology of control. It is not an ideology of negotiation, nor of democracy. It is totalitarian, almost Talmudic, in its web of psychological “laws” and principles,” Chad Powers in What is Anti-Semitism?.
‘Loss of Innocence’ is an exhibition of artwork done by Gaza children. The exhibtion was collated by Rod Cox who visited Gaza Strip in March 2009 as part of British humanitarian convoy. He stayed there till April to work with school children on this project. The young Palestinian children were asked to illustrate on paper their views of the Jewish occupation and their aspirations of the future.
The exhibition contains DVD interview footage (see video at the bottom of this post) with two of the young artists, 12 year old children, Mohammed and Ibrahim, who both witnessed the destruction of their own homes. In Mohammed’s case he saw his father killed and 5 younger siblings and uncles buried alive under the rubble of their home. The interviews serve to personalise the reality of the experience expressed in their artwork.
The exhibition containg 50 paintings was unveiled at Marple Methodist Church in London (UK) on Monday while a group of racist Zionists protested outside the church. They called the paintings baised to Israeli and full of hatred toward Jewish community.
The exhibition, which runs until Saturday, contains images showing the effect the Jewish occupation of Palestine has on children in Gaza and includes captions explaining the pictures.
Israeli-born British writer and musician, Gilad Atzmon, wrote about the paranoid reaction of the British Jewish Lobby:
Some British Jews are desperate to stop the truth about the Jewish state being spread around. The Jewish Chronicle reported today that Jewish “Community leaders are battling to stop an exhibition of paintings by children from Gaza being shown in schools in the North of England.”
As it happens, the Jewish community leaders who rush to assist the Jewish state give a clear message of Jewish collective support of Israel and its crimes. It is also almost amusing to read Zionist Lucille Cohen trying to tell Christians what the meaning of ‘good will‘ is all about.
I would suggest that Britain do itself a great favour if it proceeds with the idea of comparative literature and combine the teaching of Anne Frank with the story of Gaza children. At the end of the day, history is meaningful once it is put in perspective.
