Response to This Palestinian Artist Just Missed The Opening Of His Show In New York After Israel Refused To Let Him Leave:
What’s that got to do with someone travelling to an art exhibition for their own work. You can understand if it raised security concerns, but to give no reason and send back some one who poses no threat is like living in a prison. How would you feel if someone stopped you from travelling for something that is your passion? Not letting you move freely? Imposing sanctions? The actions of a few does not warrant punishment for a whole country. I feel Israel has the right to defend itself and live in peace, but some of the actions coming out of the IDF are just another form of extremism. You have to look at the hard facts of how a human operates, after years of being locked into one area with limited resources and limited freedom.
