God on Our Side

God on our Side_01
God on our Side_02
God on our Side_03

Inspired by Guernica (1937) by Picasso, this short deals mainly with the Israeli-Palestinian “conflict”. In the name of God, people are full of anger and violence. Fear gives way to brutality and revenge. What hope is there for a child born in this situation?
