Beautifying Gaza with public art

Constantly on the lookout for new and innovative methods to kill Jews (er, Zionists), Hamas has twice dispatched “frogman” from Gaza to attack Israel, only to have their attempts foiled by the ever vigilant IDF.
This week, Hamas has unveiled some fine public art in Gaza to honor their sea-based terror squad. (Yes, the same Hamas that claims it lacks the resources to rebuild homes can somehow find resources and funds for art, military parades, and terror tunnels.)

The Hamas frogman sculpture joins other terror- themed art displays in the coastal enclave, including this poignant ode to the grad rocket, 

and this memorial to the blockade-running terrorist- wannabes from the Mavi Marmara

You can tell a lot about a society’s values from their public art.

i was listening to NPR that had this BBC special called Hard Talk. they had yassar arafat's widow on. i expected it to be an Israel bashing program but actually Israel was hardly ever brought up. the interesting points were as follows: the widow felt that arafat was poisoned but that it was most likely an inside job, she also had some very unflattering things to say about hamas (or for the muslim brother hood) who in turn don't seem to hold arafat in high regard to my surprise, a reconciliation between hamas and fatah is highly highly unlikely to ever happen. also claims that even arafat never wanted some sort of islamic state and that she would prefer that any future pali state were more secular in nature.
