Thank you God that I m an atheist That s what Guy Delisle thinks when he witnesses the spectacle of the religions in the region of Jerusalem His character in the book is a rather silly guy At least he wants you to think he s an idiot who is surprised with everything and everyone he encounters in this Holy Land His observations are down to earthish and unjudgmental He s like a curious child discovering new things asking a lot of uestions and making remarks like a child would do uestions adults would answer with because and remarks that make adults blush Sometimes this is very funny Some readers find some of these funny cartoons respectless I would highly recommend them to try a bit harder to laugh with it Because isn t it normal that for an outsider another culture can be very weird There is some controversy about an introductory panel in the book that says Passover Jewish Easter By no means this is idiotic or respectless In fact those religious festivals are linked Easter is related to Passover of which it is regarded the Christian fulfillment This translation is not uncommon I ve heard it before Other reviewers said that the author is pro palestinian I don t agree with that Because I read the reviews before I started to read I was very attentive and at no time did I find the author judgmental He only described the things he experienced saw and heard from other people he encountered Also one must not forget his wife worked for doctors without borders in Gaza and they lived in East Jerusalem for a year and had regular contacts with other expats most of them also working in Palestine If we bear this in mind we have to conclude he did his very best not to be judgmental RespectNo wonder he won the prize for the best book at the international comic book festival in Angoul me 2012 Also do read the review of Paul Bryant I have to admit his is a lot better than mine Wierms Egg of the religions in the region Miracles et signes divins dans le Coran observations are down to earthish and unjudgmental He s like a curious child discovering new things asking a lot Next Level Spiritual Warfare of uestions and making remarks like a child would do uestions adults would answer with because and remarks that make adults blush Sometimes this is very funny Some readers find some Les Dieux et Dieu of these funny cartoons respectless I would highly recommend them to try a bit harder to laugh with it Because isn t it normal that for an Was ist was, Band 014: Versunkene Städte outsider another culture can be very weird There is some controversy about an introductory panel in the book that says Passover Jewish Easter By no means this is idiotic Le Miroir des pays or respectless In fact those religious festivals are linked Easter is related to Passover Revelry Taint #1 of which it is regarded the Christian fulfillment This translation is not uncommon I ve heard it before Other reviewers said that the author is pro palestinian I don t agree with that Because I read the reviews before I started to read I was very attentive and at no time did I find the author judgmental He Spruce: A Step-by-Step Guide to Upholstery and Design only described the things he experienced saw and heard from Portnoy's Complaint (Vintage Blue) other people he encountered Also The Times Good University Guide 2020 one must not forget his wife worked for doctors without borders in Gaza and they lived in East Jerusalem for a year and had regular contacts with Revived Revived #1 other expats most Visionary Business An Entrepreneur's Guide to Success of them also working in Palestine If we bear this in mind we have to conclude he did his very best not to be judgmental RespectNo wonder he won the prize for the best book at the international comic book festival in Angoul me 2012 Also do read the review Les Petites Reines of Paul Bryant I have to admit his is a lot better than mine

Guy Delisle Ð 8 characters review Ö eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF Ð Guy Delisle Chroniues de Jérusalem Summary ô 8 Guy Delisle et sa famille s’installent pour une année à Jérusalem Pas évident de se repérer dans cette ville aux multiples visages. This book would be accurately titled a bunch of random journal entries by an Ugly American in East Jerusalem Delisle spends a year in East Jerusalem with his girlfriend and their children while she works for Doctors without Borders The book is his travelogue of that time but Delisle manages to spend a year in an incredibly diverse and vibrant city and not be changed in the least by it He shows contempt for almost everyone he meets and seems continually surprised when things are different from a North American City He never asks why people do what they do just is surprised by their actionsA few examplesHe gives several presentations and workshops on cartooning to Palestinians throughout the year During the first one he accidentally shows a cartoon of a naked woman and man One might think that he could figure out that in a society where women dress modestly and often go veiled they might be a little offended by the nudity In fact a third of his audience leave immediately At the next presentation he shows the same images to see what would happen One might expect that he would learn from his first experience and be sensitive to the Muslim culture but he doesn t He does it again and againDuring passover which he bizarrely calls the Jewish Easter which shows a major misunderstanding of both holidays when Jews are forbidden to eat products with yeast in them he gets annoyed that many of his regular foods are hidden behind plastic sheeting Instead of asking why this is or is it s ok to buy them he pushes the plastic aside and takes what he wants p 241 What he doesn t realize is that by doing so he could be making many foods in the store unkosher and if someone saw what he was doing possibly cost the store time and money to clean up his messHe is especially critical of Israeli Jews in the book seeming to have no understanding of Judaism and no desire to learn He repeatedly comments on the prevalence of weapons among Israeli Jews but never seems to ask why He eats in a cafe where people are remembering those who died at a suicide bombing at the same cafe a few years earlier but gets continually surprised that there is security guard at the door who checks his bag He never connects the dots and understands that the check is to make sure he isn t a suicide bomber He looks at a guard with a gun at Masada and comments that you see weapons even in the most peaceful places p 157 But never asks the guard why she is there or why she carries a gunHe goes to the ultra orthodox neighborhood of Mea Shearim a lot He draws a sign he saw on the wall that asks tour groups not to pass through the neighborhood I was in Jerusalem at the same time as he was and know that the sign continues and asks tourists to dress modestly and respect the beliefs of the residents though this part of the sign is not in the book He seems to think that the residents just don t like tourists and ignores the fact that the tourists may act in ways that are offensive to the residents I m not sure he understands that some of his behavior is offensive though clearly he doesn t care when it isThe most shocking frame of the book is when he compares ultra orthodox Jews to monkeys on page 107 I didn t get the impression that he is overtly anti Semitic but I think the last people to make such a comparison were the Germans in the 1930 sThe books reads like the journal of a man who walks through life untouched by any of it It s a random collection of images and tells no coherent story Many of the images and stories contain no explanation or if they do it is often incomplete or incorrect He generally cares only about doing his drawing but has no care to learn what or who he is drawing He s an ugly American though he is from Canada and it s a shame he wasted the opportunity of spending a year in Jerusalem
