Uzi Menorah Angers Jews


Well-known Spanish artist Eugenio Merino´s installation of his art at the International Art Fair in Spain is described as offensive. His display of a haredi figure standing on the shoulders of a priest, who is kneeling on a Muslim prostrated in prayer.

Rafi Schutz, the Israeli Ambassador to Spain, released a statement requesting the removal of the works from the fair: "In the body of this Spanish artist’s work there are elements offensive to Jews, Israelis and undoubtedly others as well."

The artist also made a statement regarding two of the five works he has on display. "The aim was to display the wonder in the co-existence of the three religions, each making a common effort to reach God," he told reporters. The art still remains.

  Why are they upset?  
The Uzi is a wildly successful Israeli invention. They should be proud!

  i dont see why the 3 guys pisses them off  
but that Uzi thing is a pretty clever statement on Israeli aggression.

Yeah, I was thinking something along the same lines... if you´re an artist and your not out to offend someone or provoke meaningful thought somehow - then what´s the point? IMO Music, visual art, etc, is about evoking some sort of current of thought or emotion in the person experiencing it - otherwise it´s just fluff. Go buy a coloring book if all you want to do is stay within the lines of convention. Art is about shaking people up and making them think. Good art, anyway. Not that I´m raving about this guy´s work, but I have no sympathy for those offended by it.

During mid-evil times they hunted down and blamed Jews for the great plague. Nothing ever really changes. Spain a country and culture that can be tied to countless genocides and inquisitions. Always the first to tell others what to do and how to live. Why not take Spain and surround them with tens of millions of brainwashed Muslims taught from birth to hate Spanish people. Lets see how quickly they become militaristic.

Every country has blood on their hands. Are you proposing that no artist ever be allowed to create art which takes this to task?
  by: caution2     02/23/2010 08:52 PM     
I have no problem with individual artist. I have a problem with his culture. And what has become the accepted norms or should I say what has always been the accepted norms. They feel it is ok to consistently condemn others without ever really doing anything for themselves. And maybe understanding human nature though the analysis of their own culture and not others.

  What I see in that picture..  
is exactly what is happening today, in Israel-Palestine!

Wtf? No one made the Jews move to Israel, as far as i am concerned anything that happens to the Jewish occupants is well deserved, especially if it happens in disputed territory.

As for the art, i think it´s kinda cool. I like how as the religious gets older it seems as if they get closer to the ground.

  just goes to show  
you can put an uzi on anything and it will look cool

We´re hard to insult when it comes to our "religion". Why can´t everyone else just suck it up the same as we do?
  by: DaReapaMan   02/24/2010 03:03 AM     
Because most religious conflict is more political and self serving than they would lead us to believe.

Religion is too often used as a cover for doing shit you shouldn´t, but people think it´s ok when done in the name of a god.

"Why not take Spain and surround them with tens of millions of brainwashed Muslims taught from birth to hate Spanish people. Lets see how quickly they become militaristic."

Did you ever imagine if you steel someone´s land heard them in concentration camp kill there men women and children, do crime against humanity on there society, over and over they might not like you. Guess you haven´t learned from your own history.......
By the way which "tens of millions of brainwashed Muslims " you are speaking off, most Muslims I have spoken too take Judaism with great respect as Judaism is an integral part of there twisted religion as well. What I have heard they don’t like is the actions of the Israeli government and they are justified as can be seen from the actions of Israelis today.
I would say it is you and the majority of Zionist Israelis who have been brain washed and are now perpetrating what was done to there for-father by the Nazi. In fact they have become nothing less then the Nazi them self...
Note I said "most Israelis" as there are plenty of GREAT Israelis who are against the crime against humanity perpetrated by the Israeli´s government.

The Art is fitting reality of the idea of religion today

Proves that God has a hierarchy "A HUMAN CONCEPT"

Sooooo Did God created men or men created god

and what about women!!! who created them?

Devil!!!! is that why they are sooo evil!!!!

we all know men and women created children

By the way how come God couldn’t protect his "chosen people" in Nazi Germany or Spain or any other anti Jewish place or time? is God weaker then men?
