an idyllic image of peace

I loved this controversial graffiti during my recent visit to Amsterdam. I believe that Palestinians are being persecuted like the Jews were during World War II. No extermination camps yet, but the killings are close to becoming genocide.

A dutch artist called T combined two symbols to create this: a persecuted young girl who suffered greatly during the holocaust and the palestinian keffiyeh, in order to create an idealistic image in which both states – Palestine and Israel – exist alongside one another in peace.
