Danish artists wipe Israel off the map

Post  Rockstar. on Tue May 04, 2010 1:11 am

A Danish modern art duo, Surrend, has gained attention over a series of posters in which Israel is wiped off the map of the Middle East.

In the posters, the territory presently named Israel has been renamed "Ramallah" by the two artists Jan Egesborg and Pia Bertelsen.

The posters sport the line "Final Solution" at the top.

Israel has reacted with fury to the artworks, which are currently on display in selected neighborhoods in Berlin, Germany.

In what appeared to be a quick attempt to please Israel, Berlin Mayor Klaus Wowereit told The Jerusalem Post that "there cannot be any doubt regarding Israel's right to exist. This form of satire is not what I like."

Shimon Samuels, head of the international department of the Simon Wiesenthal Center in Paris, also expressed outrage and demanded that the artists be sued for "genocidal incitement" and "Nazi terminology."

However, Egesborg — who is of Jewish faith himself — has argued that the artworks mainly sought to remove taboos about the much-debated creation of Israel, which he termed as a "historical mistake."

"As a Jew, I always thought it was problematic that Israel was built on stolen land. The way the Israeli state treats the Palestinians today is terrible. There is no other answer but for the Jews of Israel to find a new homeland, perhaps in the USA, Germany or Denmark," Egesborg said.

The USA would be good....loads of excess land there...

The problem is it should never have been set up in the first place. The problem now is it's there and has to be accepted.

Why should the Jews of Israel move ? Israel is their home, has been for generations .
Taking it off the map is just ridiculous ,its like removing America because it was stolen from the American Indians .
