Banksy's graffiti on the apartheid wall

Guerilla artist Banksy recently took a vacation in the West Bank, and put some brilliant graffiti on Israel’s apartheid wall. More of Banksy’s wall graffiti can be found here.

Meanwhile, US media attention is focused on the Gaza settlers. It is illegal, according to the Geneva Conventions, for an occupying power to settle its own citizens in occupied territory. The state of Israel, as well as US taxpayers, have provided massive subsidies to Gaza’s settlers who mostly live in villas, over the last thirty plus years. Now they are being compensated at the tune of $200,000 to $300,000 each, and we (US taxpayers) will pay a good portion of the bill.
