Danish artists wipe Israel off the map....

And, they call it the final solution...
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.
Well, if he wants to give all of Denmark as a new home for the Jews, maybe! Yet another idiotic Jew trying to fit in...

Egesborg is brilliant. He is a true artist, very clever. He is one of the few artists with integrity.
Bravo Surrend and Jan Egesborg -- you rokc.

NOTE: You either believe in freedom of expression for ALL, or you don't. It's that simple.

I personally prefer freedom to nationalism, censorship and hasbara, But that's just me

He's free to be an idiot and satisfy his real desire to get a nice pat on the head from all the grandees of media and academia, they'll say he's a brave little boy and be so proud that he's learned the party line so well!
