Fake: Palestinian Childrens' Art for Gaza
An organization called “Canadians for Justice and Peace in the Middle East” is sponsoring an exhibit of drawings by children from Gaza. The drawings show American bombs used by Israel in its offensive against Gaza. The exhibit advertises the 26 drawings as created by Gaza children, ages 5 to 14, and reflects the children’s perceptions of the Israeli offensive against Gaza.
One little problem: the drawings are a fake. Honest Reporting Canada reported that the artwork in the exhibit was not drawn by children but by sophisticated artists mimicking a child’s style. And not only that, the “Canadians for Justice and Peace in the Middle East” is a fake name for an organization that calls for the destruction of Israel.
Experts have unanimously agreed that the artwork in the exhibit had to have been executed by trained artists; the symbolism, detail, coloring and motifs are too sophisticated for children; the brushstrokes are dynamic, well conceived and controlled, and the people are drawn in clear single-line outline. All of these elements comprise art that could not have been done by untrained children.
Unsurprisingly, none of the drawings are signed, and none of the “artists” in the exhibit are even named.
More Palestinian propaganda. And the beat goes on …
