Pardon my French, but fucking unbelievable!

"The Museum of Children’s Art in Oakland (MOCHA) has decided to cancel
an exhibit of art by Palestinian children in the Gaza Strip. The
Middle East Children’s Alliance (MECA), which was partnering with
MOCHA to present the exhibit, was informed of the decision by the
Museum’s board president on Thursday, September 8, 2011. For several
months, MECA and the museum had been working together on the exhibit,
which is titled 'A Child’s View From Gaza.'

"MECA has learned that there was a concerted effort by pro-Israel
organizations in the San Francisco Bay Area to pressure the museum to
reverse its decision to display Palestinian children’s art."

MECA should issue an action alert via their Web site tomorrow. In the
meantime, feel free to go ahead and tell these bastards what you
think:
