In “The Fake Child Artists of Gaza” in Algemeiner, July 16 (thanks to David), Elder of Ziyon exposes an example of Leftist/Islamic supremacist deception, or Leftist gullibility in advancing jihadist tropes:
In Toronto there is an art exhibition called “A Child’s View of Gaza.” The description states:
Canadians for Justice and Peace in the Middle East (CJPME) is delighted to announce the presentation at Alternative Grounds CafÃ© of a fascinating exhibition of drawings by children from Gaza. The exhibition “” A Child’s View from Gaza “” features 26 drawings by Gaza children from 5 to 14 years of age, created during the course of art therapy.
Each drawing reflects different aspects of a child’s life in Gaza and the impact of the ongoing blockade on their daily lives. A Child’s View from Gaza also offers a child’s perspective on the Israeli offensive against Gaza, which took place from December 27th, 2008 to January 17th, 2009. Each drawing is unique in its perspective and details.
When these pictures were shown in Oakland last year, they did not appear to be drawn by children, or at the very least some of them may have been drawn under the heavy influence of adults who created the motifs for children to copy. One obvious example was this one:
Image supposedly drawn by a child in Gaza. Photo: CJPME.
It is a direct copy, with a lot of standard anti-Zionist embellishments, of a poster by anti-semitic cartoonist Carlos Latuff (top left).
However, other pieces seem to be way too sophisticated to have been drawn by children at all….
There is much, much more, all fascinating. Be sure to read it all.
