I had to laugh at the sheer audacity, but the idea of appropriating a building for advertising purposes – without actually touching or altering it in any way – is really a touch of genius! The Palestine Solidarity Campaign (PSC), projected the flag, along with messages calling for sanctions to be imposed on Israel. On top of the flag was the slogan ‘Free Palestine’.
And if you really want to get a message across, where better to start than the Houses of Parliament. (At least the place is doing something useful for part of the time!)
Less easy to understand, are those that refer to the stunt as irresponsible and provocative. I suspect a touch of sour grapes here, as they didn’t think of the idea themselves. Provocative? well maybe a little, but isn’t that exactly what is needed in this case? Irresponsible? This may be true under conditions of a war-time blackout, but that doesn’t apply, and all that has been done is to shine a light on a building. Ignore these silly people!
Jonathan Arkush, vice-president of the Board of Deputies of British Jews, told Mailonline that the stunt was “offensive to the British public.” Who the hell is he to presume to know what the British public find offensive?
What a load of bullshit!
As far as I can see, the British public is concerned about saving Palestinian lives, and keeping Israelis away from Gaza, and will find a stunt like this a real hoot!
What do you think?
For somebody with entrepreneurial skills, I see real possibilities here!
