The Palestinian Museum launched its inaugural exhibition Saturday with a highly political art show focusing on Israel's occupation of East Jerusalem.The show's curator Reem Fadda said the collection was meant to spark discussion of "cultural resistance" to the policies of Israel, which occupied East Jerusalem in 1967, in a move never recognized by the international community.To visit Jerusalem, West Bank and Gaza residents need special – difficult-to-obtain – Israeli permits. Fadda said she hoped parts of the collection could travel to countries where there is a significant Palestinian diaspora.Jerusalem recently saw weeks of Palestinian protests over new Israeli security measures at the Al-Aqsa Mosque compound, the most prominent symbol of Islam and Palestinian nationalism.
