Great news: 'Nakba museum' of Jew hatred opening in Washington DC

A sign of the times?

Given that they've raised $70 of their $14,000 goal, perhaps it's premature to describe the Museum of Jew Hatred (known as the 'Nakba Museum') as 'opening in Washington DC. Or perhaps the alarm should be sounded in the hope of nipping this project in the bud (Hat Tip: Bad Blue).
This is the norming of hatred and legitimizing the big lie.
In 2011, Bshara Nassar participated in a New Story Leadership program that brought together young Israelis and Palestinians in a powerful learning experience. The program took 18 participants to the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum which certainly seemed like an appropriate site for reflection. However, he realized that there was not a museum dedicated to showing the suffering of the Palestinian people. Although the program aspired to fairly expose participants to the historical underpinnings of the Israeli and Palestinian narratives on modern history, Nassar realized that it was missing a key element of the Palestinian experience – which inspired him to create the Nakba Museum, which is live online and will open its first physical exhibit in Washington, D.C. this June…..
I wonder whether President Hussein Obama will show up for the opening.
