Exhibit shows parts of classical paintings of biblical scenes merged with photos of Palestinians. Official PA presidential committee requested the exhibit.
For Pope Francis' visit to Israel and the Palestinian Authority next week, the PA has commissioned an art exhibit that includes works of art portraying Palestinians as Jesus.
The exhibit consists of visual displays merging classical paintings of biblical scenes with photos of Palestinians and have been "designed by the Palestinian Museum at the request of the Presidential Higher Committee for Church Affairs." [Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, May 20, 2014]
As Palestinian Media Watch has documented, the PA has misrepresented Jesus for years, claiming he was not a Judean as in Christian tradition, but rather a "Palestinian," thereby claiming a Palestinian history dating back to the time of Jesus. This exhibit reinforces the pretense that Jesus was a Palestinian by visually merging the image of Jesus in classical art with pictures of Palestinians.
(Some of the displays at the exhibit also reiterate another PA message - that Palestinians suffer as Jesus did. (See museum's statement below.)
One example of such modified artwork is Raphael's The Deposition, (1507), which shows the dead Jesus being carried to his tomb. In the Palestinian version, Jesus' legs have been replaced by a photo of the wounded legs of a Palestinian, being carried away by a man as an Israeli soldier looks on.

Same post. Everyone knows Jesus was a Muslim, suffering under Jewish persecution.
