I was raised in America with the naive belief that, basically, I was the ruler of my country.
As one of the majority of Christians in America, I believed democracy
meant that "I" voted for the people who would carry out "MY" wishes.
But as every Christian, and especially every white Christian majority
knows, the minute one word is mentioned which is even remotely
viewed as objectionable to any losing "minority"; however that is
minority is defined, then their wishes as the majority will not be
In a word, Christians no longer run this country.
Jews are in charge now, so of course they can now start ignoring the taboo of ridiculing Christ.
Rulers always set the rules.
Just to be sure who is in charge here, it is now taboo to ridicule Israel.
Behold a virgin shall conceive,
and bear a son,
and his name shall be called Emmanuel.
If he shall lay down his life for sin,
he shall see a long-lived seed,
and the will of the Lord shall be prosperous in his hand.
Indeed, why would
you even call someone a Jew who blasphemed the prophecies of the
The Jewish Messiah, Jesus Christ of Nazareth, is now once again mocked and made fun of by so-called Jews.

(OK, first off, from the two examples
of Jewish art given by The Jerusalem Post, we can tell right away why
the world's art museums are not filled with Jewish art. Both of these
examples are pure trash, even from a non-biased perspective.)
the so-called "Work of Art" below, the Israeli Army is
making blasphemy of The Last Supper. The real Last Supper happened to be filled with Jews
who actually believed in the Messiah; Jews who believed in peace, not war.

fought the Romans behind their false Messiah, the one and only Bar Kokba?
In earlier times, when Christians ran Christian lands, it would be
quite disrespectful for a Jew to mock the Son of God whom Jews had condemned to death at
In today's politically correct world, where everything is turned upside
down, the only thing deemed disrespectful is a Christian to mock a Jew
whose ancestors had died during the Holocaust.
oh boy, all of them claim to have relatives who died during the
Holocaust, so this taboo against criticizing Jews and calling
them antisemitic is universal.
It is strictly taboo to say anything about a Jew.
Funny thing is, only a Jew could inform Christians why this reverse taboo works so well.
How could equating the suffering of Christ killed by Jews, against the suffering of
Jews in the Holocaust killed by Christians, not be made more clear than with this "piece of
art" depicting the Jews of the Holocaust as individual Christs on a

hijack the saving grace beliefs of Christianity in order to save their own

JERUSALEM — At the center of
the Israel Museum’s newest art exhibit stands an imposing, life-size
marble figure of Jesus. The sculpture, titled “Christ Before the
People’s Court,” would not be out of place in a church in Rome.
Yet in this depiction, the Christian savior wears a Jewish skullcap.
sculpture, created by Russian Jewish artist Mark Antokolsky in 1876, is
part of a collection of more than 150 artworks by 40 Jewish and Israeli
artists who have used Christian imagery to challenge long-held taboos
in both communities. It showcases the evolving attitudes of Jewish,
Zionist and Israeli artists toward a figure whose place in Jewish
history has been negotiated and reinterpreted over more than two

history, Jews have traditionally shunned Jesus and his gospel. And
while the Holy Land might be his accepted birthplace, for Jews in the
modern state of Israel there is often resistance to learning about or
even acknowledging Christianity.
This stems mainly from a fear of centuries-old
anti-Semitism, especially in Europe, where the crucifixion of Jesus was
used as an excuse to persecute Jews.
“We are talking
about a 2,000-year-old tension between Judaism and Christianity and the
fact that anti-Semitism grew in Christian thought and theology,” said
the exhibition’s curator, Amitai Mendelsohn.
said he was surprised at just how many Jewish artists throughout
history, and today in Israel, have used Jesus and Christian themes as
inspirations for their work.
It is a delicate subject
for Jews everywhere, including in Israel, but artists by nature “are
attracted to something that is forbidden for them,” he said.
Amishai-Maisels, a professor emeritus at the Hebrew University in
Jerusalem who specializes in Christian imagery in Jewish art, said that
religious Jews, who might be opposed to such depictions, would probably
stay away from the exhibition. “Those who do go might be stunned,” she
said, “but I don’t think they will react badly.”
of the works, though, could offend pious Christians, she said. “They
might feel the images are sacrilegious, but the wall texts are
explanatory enough — if they read them, it should calm them down.”
some of the older works by European Jews challenge Christian
anti-Semitism or look at how Jesus’ Jewish roots could act as a bridge
between the two religions, more-contemporary pieces explore Jesus as an
anti-establishment figure who suffered at not being understood.
Steinberg, an art historian from Jerusalem’s Bezalel Academy of Arts
and Design, said the appeal for Jewish artists in depicting Jesus has
changed over the years, but all are tied together by a common thread.
the 19th century, the main issue was the Jewish artist feeling
emancipated, and it was important for those artists to connect with
their surrounding and the time. For Israeli artists, it’s also a kind of
emancipation from the heavy Jewishness of their country,” she said.
the “Yellow Crucifixion,” a 1943 Marc Chagall painting showing Jesus as
a Jew. Hued in yellow, perhaps representing the star the Nazis forced
Jews to wear, Jesus is strung from a cross wrapped in a Jewish prayer
shawl and phylacteries.
Another artist, Moshe Hoffman, a
Hungarian Jew who survived the Holocaust, used his art to question
Christianity’s role in the genocide. In one work, “Six million and 1,”
Hoffman shows a Nazi guard attempting to pull Jesus from the cross to
make him Jewish prisoner number 6,000,001.

surroundings. While Antokolsky was the first Russian Jewish artist to be
accepted by his peers, he suffered an identity crisis from being Jewish
As the exhibit, which is arranged
chronologically, arrives at works from the past few decades, a theme
develops in which Jewish Israelis use Christian iconography to question
their political and national identity.
One such work is
by Igael Tumarkin. His monogram is the metal frame of a standard-issue
Israeli army cot twisted to form a cross. Flanked by material that
appears to be a shredded Israeli flag, the piece was created in 1984 and
was a protest against the war Israel was fighting in Lebanon at the
time. The title, “Mita Meshuna,” means both “strange bed” and “strange
death” in Hebrew.

photograph has ever fetched. And the image has become a cultural icon
for Israelis, suggesting perhaps that Christian themes are becoming more
acceptable in Jewish culture.
