‘Perfect” for Tammy’s sequel to ‘The Death of Right and Wrong’

Via Guardian.

A Berlin art installation dedicated to “martyrs” has prompted outrage by including one of the Paris jihadist attackers alongside the likes of Martin Luther King and Socrates, with the French embassy calling the display “deeply shocking”.

The so-called Martyr Museum by a Danish art collective shows the portraits of 20 people throughout history who “died for their convictions” accompanied by short biographies.

The exhibition includes an image of French jihadist Ismael Omar Mostefai, one of three gunmen and suicide bombers who stormed the Bataclan concert venue in Paris in 2015, killing 90 people….

Also sharing a wall with US civil rights icon King and Greek philosopher Socrates is Mohammed Atta, the pilot who slammed a passenger plane into one of New York’s World Trade Center towers on September 11, 2001….

The French embassy in Berlin expressed “consternation” and said it found the decision to include the attackers “deeply shocking”….

But the art collective defended the show, saying that it condemned any kind of violence or terrorism and that it was merely taking a wide look at the usage of the term “martyr”….

    I fail to see how placing a 9/11 attacker’s name and picture in an art museum broadly demonstrates anything but stupidity. Notice the name of this killer does not appear in my post here. That is because I lost friends in this attack and, I am insulted by giving any acknowledgement of an insane murderer. He demonstrated simply cowardice, hatred, and ignorance. His name should be erased from the history of humanity and, forever forgotten. Martyr my ass!

    You bring in Moslem invaders, so what else would you expect but those who love those “martyrs?”
