Belgium: Model chooses only to offend Jews, not Muslims, at nude photo shoot facing Western Wall

Via Elder of Ziyon:
Marisa Papen is an artist whose entire idea of art is to take off her clothes and get photographed around the world. When she visited Israel, however, she decided to push the envelope - and to pose nude in front of the Western Wall. She pre-emptively insulted anyone who would dare to be upset:
The Wall of Shame 
First of all, ‘don’t judge a book by its title’…  
This purely implies the shame you, dear reader, (perhaps) will project on me because I have done something so disrespectful, I should burn in hell. I know my mailbox is about to fill up with threats and angriness again - to all the people typing down their furiosity right now, save your energy. I don’t even open them. After my escapades in Egypt, I knew that I wanted to push the bounderies of regilion and politics even further. Breaking down the walls that have been build to keep all our wandering souls on this planet somehow under control.  
With other words, showing my personal religion in a world where freedom is becoming a very luxurious thing.
(…) Notice, however, that the photo was carefully composed so as to only show the Western Wall, not the Dome of the Rock (which would be to the left) or the Al Aqsa Mosque (cropped out of the right.) Papen and her photographer [Mathias Lambrecht] are careful to only insult Jews. Because they know that if the photo would be a little more expansive and include Muslim holy places, then she wouldn't only get angry emails that she can casually dismiss, but actual death threats.

Via Times of Israel:  The picture, along with others from the visit to Israel, are on display in the Frank Rose Gallery in Knokke, Belgium, in an exhibit titled “Road to Liberation.”
