This kind of activity really gets me. Odd isn't it that this exhibit is so unexceptable and yet my child was exposed to an exhibit in Washington D C about the Holocaust complete with piles of shoes removed from the victims and many photographs of dead bodies, but somehow we are not allowed to see evil from this point of view, hmmmm.

Let all the children speak to us through art. What are we afraid of? Let's not cave in to the threats of a few narrow minded bigots.

This is opression of expression to young children. Instead of banning their art, let's ban their suffering.

Because it is unfair action by the Oakland Museum and it should be corrected.

My family fled Europe to avoid anti-Jewish discrimination. How is it that we allow discrimination of the Palestinian people today

Thanks for adding your voice.

Is there a more beautiful and important way for children to communicate and have a voice than through the arts? Adults could learn a lesson from the children. The arts are universal. Each of us has a story to share.

I am a Palestinian-American who has never had the opportunity to see an exhibit of her own people's art! Please don't let fears of some rich individual(s) threatening to pull their funding keep the Museum from fulfilling its true mission: showcasing Art By Children. If anyone actually pulls their funding because this exhibit gets reinstated, do not fear! God will always provide. The funding will come from somewhere else. Tr5ust in God and keep true to Oakland Museum of Children's Art's mission.

Thanks for adding your voice.

All children have an equal right to to have there art exhibited. Discriminating against children from Palestine shows how politics trumps good human judgement. Please don't let politics and pressure from Jewish Lobby destroy your reputation as a free and fair institution.
