Lies Surrounding New Palestinian Museum in the US

A few months ago, the first “Palestinian museum” in the US opened in Connecticut. According to its statement of principles, it is supposed to “espouse a nonreligious and nonpolitical posture.” The museum will also “accept donations that fully comply with its policies, principles, and mission.”

The museum’s founder Faisal Saleh reiterates this in the below interview:

But it does not take too long to realize he is straight-out lying. The museum is heavily political, and predictably takes a one-sided view of the conflict while demonizing Israel. The fact it opened on their so-called Nakba Day provides the first clue!

Why would Saleh lie about the museum’s principles? I suspect he wants to attract more “middle-of-the-road” people as potential investors. By claiming the museum will solely display “palestinian culture” without getting into political discourse could be a real selling point.

Alas, it is yet another lie – which ironically displays the palestinian culture in a highly appropriate way.
