Where Is The World?

Gazans flee ahead of smiling soldiers from homes set ablaze by a tank flying the Israeli flag. This new mural on the international wall associates the current Israeli invasion of Gaza (Operation Protective Edge) with the US/South Vietnamese attack on the village of Trang Bang during the Vietnam war by modelling itself on Nick Ut’s 1972 Pulitzer prize-winning photograph for the Associated Press of villagers fleeing a napalm bombing, just below (uncropped version, via Wikipedia). On the ground in front of the mural are tealights lit in memorial and solidarity.
