War Child

After seeing the horrible images from Gaza, dead, hungry and terrified children, I could not but do this artwork. I don't know if this art reflects the sadness I have, seeing what is happening in Gaza, I hope it does. This artwork is dedicated to the children of Gaza, and all the children effected and killed by war.

Hisham, It's been a while since I've seen your work. The atrocities , will they ever end? Your work always amazes me and you are so on the mark with this one.But then again, you've always been able to capture the realities of war. I see so much in this piece.Yet in the US, it's always spun in a different tone entirely. Which is why I never get my news from MSM spin masters. Art is where reality is. Take care.

In war, it is only the innocent who suffer. Such a terrible tragedy, with no end in sight.

Dearest Hisham! What a terrble tragedy for all concerned. Especially the Palestinians trapped in their ghetto with nowhere to run from the napalm (phospherence bombs) and WOMD being rained down on them.No matter what the political justifcation on both sides it can never, never be just to slaughter hundreds of helpless women and children. This is a long running sore than can only be healed when the people come togethe to talk. Regards from Rutsy.

It is a terrible situation Hisram and the whole problem is difficult to understand for people outside this area. I really hope that wise people stand up to bring peace to the Ghaza people and the Israel people.
