We Censored Ourselves
When our graphic designer suggested this image as an advertisement for our night of theater, some of us loved it. Most of us, however, hated it. Considered it tasteless, crass and wondered why the man in the picture shaved his arms. So, for the first time ever, Artists 4 Israel has censored itself and will not be using this picture in any of our public advertisements. Unlike others who censor out of fear and intimidation - we do so simply out of finding way better pictures to use. So, I guess it isn't censorship as much as selection. Fine. Selection just doesn't sound nearly as scandalous!
