From Times of Israel:
The Israeli ambassador to Canada urged Jewish organizations in the country to push for the removal of an art exhibition on display in Ottawa City Hall because it “glorifies terrorism.” Rafael Barak claimed last week that the exhibition, which features the works of Palestinian artist Rehab Nazzal, incites violence and promotes the idea that Israel does not have a right to exist.

Nazzal’s exhibition, titled “Invisible,” comprises a number of videos and photos taken during confrontations between Israeli security forces and Palestinian prisoners at Ketziot Prison in southern Israel, Haaretz reported. Barak said that one of the videos, “Target,” portrayed several Palestinian leaders who were behind a number of terrorist attacks against Israelis in the 1970s and ’80s. A note accompanying the work stated that the Palestinians featured in the film were artists, writers and activists who had been “assassinated by Israel.”

“It’s discouraging to see a culture that promotes terrorists as its leaders.”

Among the people featured in the exhibition are Salah Khalaf (Abu Iyad), founder of the Black September organization, and Naji al-Ali, a famous Palestinian caricaturist. Both were murdered by rival Palestinian groups, not Israeli security forces. Other figures shown in the exhibition include Yasser Arafat’s deputy and the head of the Palestine Liberation Organization’s military wing, Khalil al-Wazir (Abu Jihad), and Dalal Mughrabi. Both al-Wazir and Mughrabi had taken part in the hijacking of an Israeli bus in 1978, which resulted in the deaths of 37 people. Al-Wazir was assassinated by Israeli commandos in his Tunis house in 1988, and Mughrabi was killed in a firefight with IDF soldiers following the bus hijacking.
EoZ reader Josh K. took footage of the video portion, as well as researched many of the people featured. The original is 90 seconds long with very shot glimpses of the terrorists. Here is an edited and slowed-down version of it along with the descriptions of the terrorists being highlighted.

The idea that a municipal government would feature such glorification of the most notorious terrorists and murderers in history is beyond disgusting.

Also telling is that Nazzal included a non-Palestinian who helped build Saddam Hussein's nuclear program, indicating that the artist knows very well what the purpose of that program was.

Ha'aretz' Barak Ravid, editorializing inside a "news" article, thinks that no one should complain about this:

The Foreign Ministry in Jerusalem often tries to combat attempts to boycott Israeli artists abroad based on political considerations. Last month I reported that a gallery in Scotland yielded to political pressure by anti-Israeli groups and cancelled its hosting of an exhibition by an Israeli artist which was sponsored by the Israeli embassy in London.

In the present case, even though the exhibition is controversial one could ask why the Israeli ambassador is mixing politics with art, which Israel strenuously objects to in cases in which attempted boycotts come up. In any case, the ambassador has undoubtedly given Rehab Nazzal the best public relations she could have hoped for.
Get it? Since the Israel haters successfully shut down Israeli art exhibitions, Israel should ignore terrorist-supporting art exhibits! Perfect logic in Ha'aretz' twisted self-hating mentality.

Well, no self-respecting Israel hater is going to boycott Ha'aretz, so Ravid is safe.
