The illusion of recognition is probably more dangerous than the absence of recognition.

Israel using illegal weapons in Gaza
July 21, 2014
Israeli occupation forces are using lethal and internationally banned weapons in their aggressive war against the Palestinian people in the Gaza Strip, experts and witnesses said this morning.
Israeli warplanes fired white phosphorus munition in the eastern Gaza Strip. White phosphorus burns fiercely and can set cloth, fuel, ammunition and other materials on fire, and cause serious burns or death. It was heavily used by Israel during its savage war on Gaza in 2008/2009, and caused many severe casualties.
Meanwhile, witnesses said that the Israeli occupation used flechette bombs on Saturday in the Shujaya neighbourhood causing the death of 100 civilians in the bloodiest day Gaza has witnessed so far.
Doctors saw bodies with nail shrapnel, and removed them from the wounds of those who came into hospital. While, several people and journalists collected nails from bomb sites and posted their photos on Facebook.
In the early days of the Israeli war, Norwegian doctor Mads Gilbert told a press conference in Al-Shifa Hospital that he found effects of DIME weapons on the bodies of the Palestinian casualties.
"A good number of the injuries seen here are consistent with the use of dense inert metal explosives, or DIME, that we saw during the 2009 attack and also in 2006," said Gilbert.
He continued: “The bodies are pretty much destroyed by the enormous energy released by the explosives that are shot near them or at them.”
Illegal weapons supplied by $8.5 million daily aid from the US to Israel.
Thomas Ruff, Two Photographs from the Series “Sterne”, (1990-1992)
Ruff has always had a fascination with astronomy. His attempt at photographing night sky failed due to the lack of detail captured in the pictures he had taken. Ruff’s equipment could not render the detail he wanted. As well, air and light pollution added to the difficulties of capturing the beautiful constellations. His solution was to appropriate observation shots from the website of the European Southern Observatory (ESO) based in the Andes in Chile. As far as we know, this is the first time Ruff had used “found” imagery in his work.
