PA Art Exhibit to Depict Palestinians as Suffering Jesus during Pope’s Visit

Yet another incident of Palestinian Authority officials co-opting history and misrepresenting Jesus as a Palestinian.

(JNS.org) The Palestinian Authority-sponsored Palestinian Museum has commissioned an art exhibit featuring famous pieces of art of Jesus’s suffering modified to depict Israel’s treatment of the Palestinians.

According to the museum, the images will be on display in Manger Square in Bethlehem during Pope Francis’s upcoming visit in order to highlight “the tension between the popular image of the Holy Land and Palestine’s ongoing history of suffering under occupation and oppression.”

The modified images include several famous Baroque paintings of Jesus such as Raphael’s The Deposition or Caravaggio’s The Incredulity of Saint Thomas, which have been juxtaposed on alleged images of Palestinian suffering.

According to Palestinian Media Watch, which has documented several previous instances of Palestinian officials misrepresenting Jesus as a Palestinian, the exhibit “reinforces the pretense that Jesus was a Palestinian by visually merging the image of Jesus in classical art with pictures of Palestinians.”

Pope Francis is scheduled to visit Bethlehem on May 25 and will conduct a mass at the Church of the Nativity, the traditional birthplace of Jesus.

  1. The PA’s are nuts and want to kill all non Muslims. Screw them..

  2. I’m so tired of the Palestinian propaganda and always quick to vilify the IDF and/or Israel. There is no such thing as a Palestinian to begin with, show me their heritage, history and distinction as a people, it doesn’t exist. Judea and Samaria are all Israel. These thugs need to quit throwing rocks and either be productive citizens of Israel or leave. There can never be a two state solution, there is no such thing as Palestine. There isn’t a more humane and compassionate army in the world than the Israeli’s. None. “We can forgive the Arabs for killing our children. We cannot forgive them for forcing us to kill their children. We will only have peace with the Arabs when they love their children more than they hate us.
    ― Golda Meir

  3. @gary c, hardin yes agree. we love Israel the chosen nation of God…

  4. Jay Lj Cull says:

    PROPAGANDA… NOT ‘art!’

  5. Read your Bible!!

  6. A “Palestinian” of ancient times was not a “palestinian” Arab, Turk, or whatever of today. Looks like the Arabs know about as little about Jesus as Christians do.
