On December 23, 2016, the United Nations Security Council passed Resolution 2334. According to www.un.org: “The Security Council reaffirmed this afternoon that Israel’s establishment of settlements in Palestinian territory occupied since 1967, including East Jerusalem, had no legal validity, constituting a flagrant violation under international law and a major obstacle to the vision of two States living side-by-side in peace and security, within internationally recognized borders.”
It was a shutout vote: 14-0, with one country, the United States, choosing to abstain.
The artwork in this collection comes from A4I’s Israel Trip #4 entitled Art Over War:
“Art Over War is a battle cry. Artists 4 Israel took some of the world's most famous graffiti artists to the border of Syria to stare down the rockets from their civil war. They painted a hospital which Syrian troops had turned into a spy base and which had since been destroyed as well as former Syrian army barracks. Our productions covered over years of hateful graffiti written by Syrian troops against Jewish Israelis with messages of reconciliation and peace. In Jerusalem and Tel Aviv, we hosted giant parties for children, bringing together break dancers, DJs and, of course, visual arts.”
It is fascinating how the UN is obsessively focused on Israel while doing nothing to stop the suffering in Syria and around the world. The ‘Art Over War’ collection is limited to 2,334 pieces. 50% of the proceeds go to funding the next Artists for Israel trip. A4I plans to bring the world’s greatest muralists to the Israel border of Syria and paint giant works of art for the people living there.
