#BDS: 'Color Red' in New York

Explosions, rocket alert, frightened kids. This time it's not in Sderot, but at exhibition initiated by Artists 4 Israel group in New York, meant to illustrate life under constant rocket attacks in southern Israel

The Statue of Liberty, Times Square, Empire State Building and Madison Square Garden are all popular tourist destinations in New York, and very far away from the southern Israeli town of Sderot, which received extensive global exposure in recent years, after being the target of Qassam rocket attacks from Gaza.

However, the American public remained mostly indifferent and inactive. A special exhibition recently displayed in New York was created to change that.

The "Hamas in The Hamptons" exhibition was initiated by a group of New York-based street artists dubbed Artists 4 Israel, who previously appeared on Ynetnews.

During last Independence Day, the Israel fans traveled all the way from the Big Apple, despite a negative global impression and the risks involved, in order to show their support and sympathy with the residents of Sderot.
