The Israeli Embassy in Dublin has posted a factual but highly controversial series of posters on its Facebook page, warning Western European cities that they are fast becoming increasingly Islamic, while extolling Israel as ‘the last frontier of the free world.’
UK Telegraph The extraordinarily creative images, which the Irish media was quick to condemn as “grotesque,” included Michelangelo’s statue of David wearing an Arab headrag and with an explosive belt wrapped round his torso. Accompanying the slogan were the words “Israel now, Italy next”.
Another, addressed to Ireland, showed Dublin’s famous Molly Malone statue covered by a full-length black burqa, while a fourth featured what appears to be an armed militant perched on a seaside rock and bearing the words: “Israel now, Denmark next”.
Similar posters were used for different cities, with the same warning going to Paris, accompanied by an image of the Mona Lisa wearing the Muslim garment.
