Berlinde De Bruyckere.:Suffering and Protection
Flemish sculptor creates sculptures and drawings of suffering human bodies that resemble nothing so much as reality. It mixes in his sculptures on religious grounds and media images and writes the Christian motif of the human suffering in the contemporary era. The confrontation with the body that engages the artist led to questions about the ethics of our society and are the place to fundamental questions about the nature of the human being.
These disturbing and uncannily lifelike sculptures by Belgian artist Berlinde De Bruyckere are incredibly visceral and eerie. The repulsion instinctively triggered in the viewer comes from their verisimilitude, and the sense of reality of this nameless, grotesque, distorted, half-human, seemingly fluid flesh; combined with their beauty, the delicate, subtle mottling of colors, the pure realistic visceral fleshiness of the works, and their technical grace.

Bloody Friday: 12 children among dozens killed in Israel’s merciless slaughterJuly 19, 2014
The death toll from Israel’s assault on Gaza continues to rise rapidly.
At least 61 people, at least 12 of them children, were killed on Friday alone, the second day of Israel’s ground invasion of parts of the Gaza Strip, and the twelfth and bloodiest day since Israel began bombarding the territory with airstrikes and land-based and naval artillery.
Eight members of a single family, the youngest six months old, were killed when a missile struck their home.
By Friday evening Gaza time, 296 people had been killed and more than 2,200 injured since the Israeli bombardment began, according to Ma’an News Agency
But any death toll reported in the media is quickly out of date, as the numbers keep rising.
Eighty percent of the fatalities are civilians and half of the injured are women and children,according to the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA).
At least 58 of the dead are children, according to Dr. Ashraf al-Qidra, the health ministry spokesperson in Gaza.
Gaza residents and journalists have reported heavy and indiscriminate shelling across the coastal strip.
Journalist Mohammed Omer is using his Twitter feed to provide an almost real-time account of the horrifying toll of the Israeli attack.  
Several Gaza residents have told The Electronic Intifada that they are without electricity for most of the time.
Massive destruction continues: 1,780 housing units have been destroyed or severely damaged in Israeli bombing, according to OCHA.
Eighty-four schools and six health facilities have been damaged in the attacks and another 13 health facilities are unable to operate, OCHA states in its latest update.
The number of Palestinians seeking shelter at UN-run schools has risen to 33,500, or 11,000 more than the previous day.
Human Rights Watch said this week that Israeli air attacks it investigated “have been targeting apparent civilian structures and killing civilians in violation of the laws of war.”
The group called on Israel to “end unlawful attacks that do not target military objectives and may be intended as collective punishment or broadly to destroy civilian property.”
