Chroniues de Jérusalem

review Chroniues de Jérusalem Ñ eBook or Kindle ePUB Ovat siellä Mutta Israel pitää Jerusalemia pääkaupunkina Knesset parlamentti on täällä eikä Tel Avivissa – – En tajunnut yhtään mutta ajattelin että onhan minulla kokonainen vuosi aikaa päästä asioista perilleKun sarjakuvataiteilija maailmanmatkaaja Guy Delisle muuttaa perheineen Jerusalemiin ei ase. I started this book over a year ago and put it back on shelf don t know why For me it was a great reminder of why I find Israel and Palestine so fascinating and scary as well If you re in need of easy but very informative introduction to lifehistory of Israel and Palestine pick it up It s served with a bit of humour and even the most drastic elements are left to imagination rather than exhibitionistically display on pages Great and very informative graphic journal

review Chroniues de Jérusalem Ñ eBook or Kindle ePUB Ttuminen monenkirjavien kasvojen intohimojen ja konfliktien elävöittämään kaupunkiin suju kommelluksitta Tässä teoksessa piirtäjä paljastaa meille Jerusalemin jollaista sanomalehdet eivät näytä Delisle tarjoilee lukijoilleen kiinnostavan omakohtaisen näkemyksen Lähi idän polttopisteen arjesta 2000 luvull. If you asked me a year ago what I wanted from the graphic novel world I would have said a colorful Guy Delisle travelogue And here it is A fantastic book with color humour and depth than his previous ones and big enough that I didn t feel it went by too fast or that it wasn t worth the money It left me with a feeling of completion and the satisfaction that I got a solid and visually appealing account of a year in Jerusalem Jerusalem is Guy Delisle s fourth travelogue and in my opinion his best It blends travel he travels than in his previous books including two short trips to Europe self deprecating humor his funniest book yet religion always a fascinating topic and great artwork It s obvious that a lot of work went into thisDelisle lives in East Jerusalem with his wife and two kids and coveys what it s like to live in a bizarre city torn apart by political unrest and deep seated religious beliefs A place where the IsraeliPalestinian conflict is a never ending concern A place where followers of three major religions Judaism Christianity Islam have yet to learn how to live together in peace A place of social and geographical segregation Starting 2002 a separation wall was built to control the entry of Palestinian West Bank residents into Israel and was defended by the Israeli government as a security measure designed to prevent terrorist attacks The barrier is still under construction and its length upon completion is estimated to be approximately 700 kilometers It s a complicated reality which Delisle manages to present in understandable terms always keeping an open mind and a perpetually fascinated attitude as one would expect from a foreigner in a strange place or an atheist confronted with religion He is cynical and ignorant but also curious interested observant funny uestioning he tackles a wide variety of topics ranging from peculiar religious practices to the 2008 2009 Gaza War and all the while he immortalizes in his drawings a year of his life So what makes Jerusalem and its surrounding areas so different To name a few oddities Samaritans adamant in their belief that prayers must be placed over and not on the doorframe like Jews wrongly think ultra orthodox families averaging 7 children and living below poverty line because the husbands don t work and are exempt from military service they study sacred texts instead parallel transportation systems Israeli buses that go everywhere except the Arab uarters and Arab minivans that operate nowhere but the Arab uarters the omnipresence of guns Spiderman kippas an Arab family renting crosses to people who want to reenact Christ s Passion stores being closed on either Friday Saturday or Sunday according to their owners religious affiliation No farther than Tel Aviv coffee shops are open on the Sabbath and girls in bikinis are smoking hookahs on the beach All in all a wonderful book and highly recommended if you like graphic novels travel humour or you re interested in religion Sadly according to this interview we won t be seeing any travelogues from him anytime soon

review Chroniues de Jérusalem Ñ eBook or Kindle ePUB Israelin hallituksen mielestä tämä on Israelia se on varmaa Mutta kansainvälisen yhteisön silmissä joka ei tunnusta vuonna 67 tehtyä jakoa tämä on Länsirantaa mistä pitäisi tulla Palestiina jos se jonain päivänä tapahtuu Kansainvälisen yhteisön mielestä pääkaupunki on Tel Aviv ja kaikki lähetystöt. This book would be accurately titled a bunch of random journal entries by an Ugly American in East Jerusalem Delisle spends a year in East Jerusalem with his girlfriend and their children while she works for Doctors without Borders The book is his travelogue of that time but Delisle manages to spend a year in an incredibly diverse and vibrant city and not be changed in the least by it He shows contempt for almost everyone he meets and seems continually surprised when things are different from a North American City He never asks why people do what they do just is surprised by their actionsA few examplesHe gives several presentations and workshops on cartooning to Palestinians throughout the year During the first one he accidentally shows a cartoon of a naked woman and man One might think that he could figure out that in a society where women dress modestly and often go veiled they might be a little offended by the nudity In fact a third of his audience leave immediately At the next presentation he shows the same images to see what would happen One might expect that he would learn from his first experience and be sensitive to the Muslim culture but he doesn t He does it again and againDuring passover which he bizarrely calls the Jewish Easter which shows a major misunderstanding of both holidays when Jews are forbidden to eat products with yeast in them he gets annoyed that many of his regular foods are hidden behind plastic sheeting Instead of asking why this is or is it s ok to buy them he pushes the plastic aside and takes what he wants p 241 What he doesn t realize is that by doing so he could be making many foods in the store unkosher and if someone saw what he was doing possibly cost the store time and money to clean up his messHe is especially critical of Israeli Jews in the book seeming to have no understanding of Judaism and no desire to learn He repeatedly comments on the prevalence of weapons among Israeli Jews but never seems to ask why He eats in a cafe where people are remembering those who died at a suicide bombing at the same cafe a few years earlier but gets continually surprised that there is security guard at the door who checks his bag He never connects the dots and understands that the check is to make sure he isn t a suicide bomber He looks at a guard with a gun at Masada and comments that you see weapons even in the most peaceful places p 157 But never asks the guard why she is there or why she carries a gunHe goes to the ultra orthodox neighborhood of Mea Shearim a lot He draws a sign he saw on the wall that asks tour groups not to pass through the neighborhood I was in Jerusalem at the same time as he was and know that the sign continues and asks tourists to dress modestly and respect the beliefs of the residents though this part of the sign is not in the book He seems to think that the residents just don t like tourists and ignores the fact that the tourists may act in ways that are offensive to the residents I m not sure he understands that some of his behavior is offensive though clearly he doesn t care when it isThe most shocking frame of the book is when he compares ultra orthodox Jews to monkeys on page 107 I didn t get the impression that he is overtly anti Semitic but I think the last people to make such a comparison were the Germans in the 1930 sThe books reads like the journal of a man who walks through life untouched by any of it It s a random collection of images and tells no coherent story Many of the images and stories contain no explanation or if they do it is often incomplete or incorrect He generally cares only about doing his drawing but has no care to learn what or who he is drawing He s an ugly American though he is from Canada and it s a shame he wasted the opportunity of spending a year in Jerusalem
