Here is another example of modern "art" (read: trash). The Museum of National Antiquities in Sweden (Stockholm) has an "installation" called "Snow White And The Madness Of Truth." Zvi Mazel, Ambassador of Israel, took action and expressed his anger by "re-shaping" the "installation"... Click here for a video. Here is a description of the "art" exhibit:
"The artwork consisted of a rectangular basin filled with red fluid. A boat floated on top carrying a portrait of Hanadi Jaradat, who killed herself and 22 Israelis in an attack on a restaurant in the northern Israeli city of Haifa in October." [Reuters.]
M�rten Barck (Watch) has more about the terrorist bomber, Hanadi Jaradat.
