Boomerang, a t-shirt and postcard company in the Netherlands was distributing free postcards of Anne Frank, wearing a ( Palestinian ) kaffiyeh! The local Jewish group, Centre for Information and Documentation for Israel ( CIDI ) was quick to condemn the publication of the free postcard as “a tasteless falsification of history.”
Boomerang’s chief editor, Pascale Bosboom, told Haaretz that the artist responsible for the image – who is known only as T. – combined the two symbols “to create an idealistic image in which both states exist alongside one another in peace.”
When the Danish cartoonist drew a cartoon of the Holy Prophet (pbuh) wearing a bomb as his turban, that was freedom of expression?
Now, it’s not?
