The Star speaks volumes.

the_star

Rajie (Roger) Cook, U.S.A., 1993

“The Star is a stunningly psychological poster that ignites a chain reaction… the stars on the American flag are five-pointed; here, an American flag is wrapped around the six-pointed Magen David (Hebrew: Star of David), the national political emblem of modern Israel as well as the iconic symbol of Zionism. The Star is boldly set out against a white background with no accompanying text, thereby deliberately focusing the viewer’s attention on the artist’s provocative premise.”

“Cook fuses the U.S. flag and the Star of David to make a political declaration: that Zionism is a significant internal force in American political life, capable of morphing it into a new and alien shape. The poster challenges Americans to review the assumptions that have allowed Zionism to flourish without question or restraint…”

(I had posted about Rajie’s The Star a few years back, as well as a poster of his addressing the millions of dollars a day that the U.S. provides to Israel in military aid [$8.2 million daily, in 2011] here ).
