Does anyone else find this offensive?

Chicago-area Muslims again this year are going to flock to an event called “Iftar in a Synagogue.” This year it’s at Temple Shalom in Chicago. The Temple has pictures from a student trip to 48 Palestine, and this picture of their kids posing on a tank is on their website.

Does no one else find this offensive? How many Muslims and Christians have been killed or made homeless by that very tank? There are ways to conduct interfaith events, but I don’t think that breaking bread with people who support the occupation of Palestinians is one way to do it.
