Crucified Ronald McDonald in Israel should be taken down

Many people have expressed their dissatisfaction with the crucified clown in the människostorlek who have been suspended at the museum in the israeli city of Haifa, but the reasons for the protests have been essentially different.

The crucified clown, called McJesus, is a part of an exhibition about consumption and religion, which also includes an installation where Barbie - and Kendockor depicting Holy Mary and Jesus, a theme that has not turned out well with local people or politicians.

Friday, when the violence broke out. According to the Reuters news agency has arrested a person suspected of assault while two persons were called for having thrown fire bombs towards the museum.

the News agency said that three police officers were injured in the unrest, where several dozen protestors tried to break into the premises and smashed glass panes in the scuffle. The protests were led by parts of the christian minority who make up about two per cent of the country's population, and continued during Saturday.

" I oppose this ignominious sculpture. As a christian person, I am deeply offended by this use of our symbols, " said a protestant to Reuters.

Miri Reger agreed with the rejection of the crucified clown. She threatened to withdraw the museum's funding of the consideration to religious interests, which she, according to the country's Ministry of justice had no power to actually do.

However, the sculpture should be taken down from the exhibition. It announced Haifas mayor Einat Kalish Rotem via Twitter, after she met with the local kyrkledare.

”the Sculpture will be taken down and sent back as soon as possible. We regret the upset feelings that the christian population has experienced, and the physical damage and the violence that surrounded it,” she wrote, according to Reuters.

the local population or politicians who opposed the sculpture was shown at the museum. Criticism also came from a somewhat unexpected direction when the Finnish author of the work, Jani Leinonen, demanded that it would be taken down out of solidarity with Palestine.
