How can the Oakland Museum Of Children`s Art staff look at themselves in
the mirror? As an American citizen (whose family has lived in the U.S.
for two centuries), I find this kind of censorship of any children`s art
appalling. The Oakland Museum Of Children`s Art is also ignoring the
honest conservatives, moderates, progressives, liberals, and the Left
(including within the Jewish community - both here in the U.S. and in
Israel), by canceling the exhibition of drawings by Palestinian
children.
