In a Christmas card designed by Banksy, a UK-based artist and political activist, the Holy Family — Joseph and Mary — head towards Bethlehem only to find Israel’s ‘Separation Barrier,’ preventing their way.
This Christmas, the card, with all of its implications for humanity’s universal rights — as well as for Christianity’s heritage — has spread like wildfire. Picture Credit: Al-Ahram.
A biblical theme, set in the contemporary reality that is Bethlehem, East Jerusalem and the West Bank, as well as Gaza. Conflict, destruction, separation, oppression.
Let’s hope that 2015 will bring a real prospect of peace, with justice, further forward, not to mention a minimum of prosperity for all.
