ISRAEL---Officials at Sapir College in Sderot are investigating the possible theft of an amulet from a provocative art display, Israel’s NRG News said Tuesday. “The Power of the Word,” which opened Tuesday at Sapir College, is seen by some as encouraging incitement, though its defenders insist that the exhibit is important because it showcases opinions on both sides. The exhibition includes three hamsas (palm-shaped amulets popular throughout the Middle East) created by artist Gad Wellnitz and decorated with the words “ISIS,” “Slaughter the Jews,” and “In blood and fire we will redeem Palestine.” [link]
