This poster is pasted on to the traffic control box on the corner of Terenure Place and Rathfarnham Road Lower. It says “MOHAMMAD Creating Fuss”. Now either this is a crrrrazy new band I haven’t heard of and ‘the kids’ totally like think it’s random or it is a worrying sign of anti-Muslim sentiment in the leafy suburbs of Dublin 6.
This image I have seen before: during my now largely unremarkable university education I did a thesis on National Socialism and the influence that Max Weber’s socioogy had on its development. Fascinating.
Several anti-Semitic pamphlets used to use the image above as the wily Jew about to create chaos in our ‘stable European democracies’ in the 1920s. I believe the image is originally Russian but to see the image in this context is kind of worrying. Anyone good at decorative Arabic translation?
