In a chapter in the upcoming book Hidden Genocides, Mr. Moses, a professor of history at the European University Institute in Florence, Italy, said the museum’s handling of the story of Canada’s indigenous people gets at a fundamental problem with a state-funded human rights museum. (Ottawa has committed $21.7-million to annual operating costs.) “As a proclaimed ‘human rights leader,’ it is impossible for the state to admit to a genocidal foundation,” he writes. “This is a genocide whose name dare not be spoken in the museum.”Actually, Professor Moses, what dare not be spoken here is how power-crazed leftists and Islamists have hijacked "human rights" and put it in service of their own demented agendas.
I'd love to see an exhibit about that in the museum, but it might be difficult to depict, and even if they managed to come up with something I'm pretty sure it would be relegated to some out-of-the-way nook where no one would see it.
Update: Now, here's an edifice that I'd go out of my way to visit--the Jihad Museum in Herat, Afghanistan. Not only does it have cool--albeit wooden--reenactments of holy war,
I hear the food in the restaurant is both halal and to die for.
