Maybe it is just a strong indication that a lot of heads out there have a few loose screws rattling around.

Maybe a bit tweaky. Still, if you're a believing Christian, why get browned off at non believing Jews any more than at non believing gentiles?

Yes, and they're Jewish ones at that. I suspect this exhibit was put on for the purpose of instilling more guilt into Gentiles. This makes them easier to manipulate.

"Art" can smooth the rough edges of life, nurturing beauty and imagination, and showing a different and provocative way of looking at the world, but artists -- and museums and galleries that show their work -- are sometimes surprised by the hostile reception their works provoke. Sensitivity to the feelings of the public, the consumers of art, is not necessarily a cultivated art.

The Jewish Museum in Berlin is learning that lesson with an exhibit innocently described as "The Whole Truth: Everything You Wanted to Know About Jews."

Such an exhibit is particularly appropriate in Germany, where there aren't any longer...
