For Pope Francis’ visit to Israel and the Palestinian Authority, the PA commissioned an art exhibit that merged classical works of art portraying biblical scenes with photos of Palestinians, a flagrant misrepresentation of Jesus.

Raphael's The Deposition, (1507), which shows the dead Jesus being carried to his tomb. In the Palestinian version, Jesus' legs have been replaced by a photo of the wounded legs of a Palestinian, being carried away by a man as an Israeli soldier looks on.

“These images were requested specifically for the Pope’s visit,” Itamar Marcus, founder and director of Palestinian Media Watch (PMW), told FoxNews.com.

“The paintings clearly depict Jesus blending in with Palestinians. This is an ongoing and important part of Palestinian ideology as demonstrated on December 23 last year when, in his annual message to Christians, [PA president] Mahmoud Abbas referred to the birth of Jesus Christ as a Palestinian messenger of peace, attempting to give them [the Palestinians] a history they don’t have. The same message has been repeated throughout the Palestinian establishment, including by the Grand Mufti, and others.”

The Incredulity of Saint Thomas (1602), by Caravaggio, the doubting Thomas inspects the wounds of Jesus to verify his resurrection. In this modified version of the artwork, the wounded part of Jesus' body has been replaced with a photo of a Palestinian's identity card, clearly identifying Jesus as a Palestinian. Thomas, presumably representing an Israeli soldier, inspects the card.
