Ki lähetystöt 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 Jerusalem This is an appropriate time to take another look at Jerusalem and Guy Delisle s book can explain to you the in and outs of what US President Trump is seeing while he is visitingGuy Delisle is a graphic artist who accompanies his wife a M decins Sans Fronti res physician to hotspots around the world While in the past he has been able to work as an artist while overseas on assignment every posting is different and the one in Jerusalem did not lend itself as easily to sketching outside teaching in universities giving shows on his work and concentrating on finishing his drawings in a systematic wayThe very thing that makes Delisle effective in his role as graphic artist and stay at home husband and dad also makes him a frustrating on the ground observer He is almost resolutely non partisan and non political When bombs start to fly in Operation Cast Lead over the holiday period Dec 27 2008 January 16 2009 he tells what he heard from his position at home but he wasn t interested in being an observer He also wasn t interested in interviewing settlers in Hebron when he was asked to do graphic reportage there By the end however I could see the value in his distanced uninvolved view He drew what he observed without much editorializing He drew the extreme care some security guards took in checkpoint and airport security work the difficulties Palestinians had in getting around working living and planning for the future he drew the wall and the odd situation of Palestinians being pushed of their homes by settlers in the West Bank The denial from the Israeli state sounds like the US finding ways around giving African Americans voting rights or rights to decent education Delisle saw the sights Jerusalem had to offer always on the lookout for interesting or peaceful places to bring his wife and children or somewhere he could work uninterrupted Eight months into a twelve month tour the pastor of a Lutheran church Augusta Victoria on the Mount of Olives offered Delisle a room in which to work It was uiet and the only distractions were Delisle s own thoughts and a large organ which sent vibrations through his space He found that he d accustomed himself to grabbing the in between moments in his hectic daily life and the peacefulness of the church paradoxically made it difficult for him to complete his projects Delisle spent many frames drawing the wall It s graphically interesting he would explain The wall through Jerusalem cut Palestinians off in some cases from their school from their work from their own land What I particularly liked was his dividing the chapters by months of the year Some months had considerable drama but others reflected his dawning understanding about the situation and his learning to make up his own mind about what might be excusable behavior and what seemed like taking advantage Throughout the black and white book a map of Israel with the West Bank and Gaza drawn in chartreuse served to remind Delisle and readers that the amount of space allocated to Palestinians in Israel is very small and Israeli settlers are pushing them away even still The violent tactics and language the settlers use the virulent criticism heaped upon the government and activists by the press can be shocking to those of us who are not used to such extreme positions The vast majority of Israelis vigorously disapprove of the extreme behavior of the Hebron settlers It is hard not to respond with derision to statements like these and it is hard to see that restraint is working to underline the urgency of the situation for PalestiniansThe currents of daily life are portrayed effectively by the end of this thick graphic novel 336 pages and Delisle s tone and lack of interest serve his purposes well Despite his occasional missteps when discussing Hasidic Jews for instance his intentional ignorance gives us and him the opportunity to look at the situation anewI ended up ordering Delisle s Pyongyang A Journey in North Korea series and also his book Burma Chronicles He has another called Hostage which debuted in English in 2017 translated from the French Hostage tells the story of MSF employee Christophe Andr who was captured in Russia s North Caucasus in 1997 until he managed to escape months later Public Radio International has a description here From that link we learn And the truly surprising end of the story is this Just six months after he escaped Andr showed up at Doctors Without Borders and asked for a new assignment He stayed on with them for another 20 years

Iin ei asettuminen 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 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
