Israel's ambassador to Sweden was kicked out of Stockholm's Museum of National Antiquities after he destroyed an artwork featuring a picture of a
Palestinian suicide bomber, the artists said.
The incident, widely reported in the Swedish media, occurred at the opening on Friday of the "Making Differences" exhibit, part of an upcoming
international conference on genocide hosted by the Swedish government and in which Israel is scheduled to participate.
Sweden's foreign ministry said Saturday it would summon ambassador Zvi Mazel to a meeting to explain himself.
"We will contact him on Monday to arrange a meeting. We want to give him a chance to explain himself. We feel that it is unacceptable for him to
destroy art in this way," ministry spokeswoman Anna Larsson told AFP.
I hardly see this as art, but there are others who would.
But there is no excuse for these actions by a so-called diplomat.
I would expect better behavior from someone representing a nation.
