Why would an educated person, a lawyer, and a mother of two choose to strap explosives to her body and go and blow up herself and a lot of random innocent people?

Hanadi Jaradat did just that in October, killing 21 Israelis in Haifa.

Artists Gunilla Skoeld Feiler from Sweden and Israeli born Dror Feiler created an artwork titled "Snow White and the Madness of Truth" for an exhibition in Stockholm, to make people ponder the incomprehensibility of this. On a pool of blood a little sailboat is floating, with a picture of a smiling Hanadi Jaradat as its sail. "When I saw her picture in the paper, I thought she looked like Snow White, that's why I gave that name to the piece" said Gunilla Feiler.

The Israeli ambassador didn't ponder the incomprehensibility of the scenario. He went amock and destroyed the piece the moment he saw it, and subsequently got kicked out of the museum. I suppose that illustrates well another angle of the problem. And it instantly made the art piece much more famous than it could have been otherwise. Anyway, he should probably find himself another line of work.

I'll bet the story and pictures of the victims have been widely distributed. Which of course serves to illustrate the horror of the crime. Normal families with little children and with real lives. But it doesn't serve to bring light to why it happened. I believe that it is quite worthwhile to look into the eyes of the killer, to ponder what the hell was going on for her. There are answers there somewhere. Just as there are some answers hidden somewhere in the ambassador's motivation for doing what he did. The motivation for hatred usually isn't very rational, but it still has some kind of form that we might examine and maybe understand.

One of the things art can do is to make you see things in a way you hadn't before, and maybe somehow leave you a little wiser. If is for sure not just a system of keeping score or of dissemminating polically correct propaganda. At least not in non-totalitarian countries. And, no, putting the pictures of the 21 victims in little boats instead of the perpetrator would maybe have been a strong art piece too, but wouldn't have made us any wiser.  

19 Jan 2004 @ 17:13 by ming : Who was Hanadi Jaradat?
From a comment {link:|elsewhere}:

Who was Hanadi Jaradat? Jaradat was a 29 year old lawyer from Jenin. She had lost a lot to the Israelis and the intifada--eight years earlier, the distant cousin whom she was to marry and whom she loved was killed in an encounter with Israeli security forces before they could marry. Her cousin, Salah, and brother, Fadi were shot down in cold blood on the night of June 12 at the family home in front of her eyes and those of the cousin's pregnant wife and two year old son. Fadi, initially wounded, was taken by soldiers and shot again to make sure he was dead. When the family got the body back to bury it, Hanadi reported to Al-Arab Al-Yum that her brother had been shot in every part of his body. Her brother's wedding would have happened three days later, on June 16, to eighteen year old Abir. After Fadi died, Hanadi became the breadwinner for the family because her father was ill with cancer and could no longer work. The only thing that had improved his health was Fadi's upcoming wedding. With Fadi's death, her father was left a broken man.

She said: "If our nation cannot realize its dream and the goals of the victims, and live in freedom and dignity, then let the whole world be erased."

how sad for her, how completely devasting...

she was absolutely driven mad by the hatred she experienced.

So sad.

I don't htink it was hate I think she had absolutely nothing to live for. No one with a good prosperous life would resort to such an act. She' been driven by helplessness and hopelessness given the situation she's forced to live in.

I always like to see a man on Advanced Style. Although, of cosure, I love the women and think it is all very stylish and quite amazing, a man makes a nice change to the state of affairs.I adore what he is wearing and the use of bright colours is absolutely exquisite. Fantastic - especially the blue scarf and pink tie. It shows use of such a wide range of beautiful colours.Advanced Style is truly one of the most inspiring blogs I have ever read and I can only thank you for sharing all this with the world.In one word? Beautiful...

IL BISONTE!!!!! Beautiful bags and accessories, sweet litlte shop downtown. Ari, your blog has shown me that there is no "some day" for style. Style is always NOW (What will I wear today to express myself?). If you find yourself lacking in comparison to Mr Di Filippo, (I hope you don't relly feel that way), then play in your closet. Ask your ladies for help! Although I know you only through the blog, it's obvious you have poise.
