A new museum in Paris was recently opened which depicts Palestinian suicide bombers as heroes.
Now, the Paris museum has drawn outrage from the Jewish community in France over a display showing photos of Palestinian suicide bombers as martyrs.
The exhibition entitled “Death” by Palestinian photographer Ahlam Shibli at the taxpayer-funded Jeu De Paume Museum, is described on the website of the museum as showing “how Palestinian society retains the presence of the ‘martyrs’.”
According to CRIF, or the Representative Council of Jewish Institutions in France, the display has what’s called “martyrs” of Palestinian terrorist groups, including al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigades, the Izz ad-Din al-Qassam, and the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine.
In a letter written to French Culture and Communications Minister Aurelie Filipetti, CRIF President Roger Cukierman asked the French government to intervene and remove the display.
“It is particularly unfortunate and unacceptable in the heart of Paris, to display perpetrators of terrorism as heroes,” Cukierman said in a statement.
