A state-funded museum in Paris is causing outrage among France's Jewish community for staging a photo exhibition that calls Palestinian suicide bombers "martyrs."
The exhibit, entitled "Death" by Palestinian photographer Ahlam Shibli, features dozens of intimate and often disturbing portraits of Palestinian suicide bombers with anti-Israeli captions that glorify their deaths.
Among the works at the Jeu de Paume museum are shots of suicide bombers from the controversial Al Aqsa Martyrs' Brigade — listed as a terrorist organization by European Union and the United States.
"This is unacceptable. You have the right to be shocked when an apology for terrorists is made in the heart of Paris," said Roger Cukierman, president of CRIF, France's leading Jewish group.
"And to think this is a state-funded museum. There must be more vigilance. One minute France is fighting terrorists in Mali, and then celebrating the same ones here," he added.
A protest is planned at the museum Sunday.

Suicide bombers are not terrorists now?
I'm lost. I thought we all hated people who blow up innocent people, men women and children. But these guys actively target them on purpose...
guess it's just the thing to do.. support the enemy because you just don't like your own people.
