Stop the Violence: art made of human bones by Francois Robert –
He spends hours painstakingly arranging the bones into striking shapes each five or six feet wide and photographs them. “I spend a lot of time on my knees,” he says. “You can imagine how my knees hurt when I decided to create a complete alphabet in order to make words along with the symbols/images”
[FRANCOIS ROBERT / CATERS]
In an interview with Fox News, he [Michael Oren, Israeli Ambassador to the UN] described the operation, in which nine people died, as “perfectly legal, perfectly humane – and very responsible”.
Is that anything like Rumsfeld describing the the invasion, bombing of Baghdad as “Oh the humanity!”
He defending the attack in open waters, saying: “Israel acted in accord with international law. Any state has the right to protect itself, certainly from a terrorist threat such as Hamas, including on the open seas.
“The US acted under similar international law when it fought the Germans and the Japanese in World War Two.” snip
All things considered (remember Leon Uris and Exodus) it’s a bit of a stretch. Just a bit. Bitty bit. Wittle bit.
