Brandeis University pulled a pro-Palestinian art exhibit from its campus. Among the images at the “Voices from Palestine” exhibit were Palestinian children dripping with blood, a bulldozer threatening a girl, and a boy with an amputated leg walking on crutches. The pieces were painted by Palestinian teenagers in a Bethlehem refugee camp, at the request of an Israeli Jewish student at Brandeis. The Zionist Organization of America condemned the exhibit, and several students lodged complaints with the school. A university spokesman said the panel was yanked four days into its two-week run because “it was completely from one side in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.”
