a salute to the national erection is performative street intervention created by liad hussein kantorowicz and executed by the tel aviv queer community in tel aviv on june 2007.
the performance-action initially took place as a part of a week-long event commemorating 40 years to the israeli occupation of the palestinian territories of west bank and gaza in 1967. due to its widespread success, the action was repeated twice more until finally the phallus, which was seen as a threat to the public order, was captured, dismembered and confiscated by the israeli police.
