Throwing Flowers

UK graffiti artist Banksy (please go through the whole website. He has some amazing art on New York and New Orleans walls too) painted some huge stencils on buildings and the border wall in Bethlehem. There's a really interesting article by Michael Scott Moore about the tour he was given by his taxi driver, to see Banksy's work. The Palestinian viewpoint (or perhaps just the taxi driver's viewpoint) offers a peek into the under-reported side of the Israeli/
Palestinian conflict (my overly-nice word for what's really going on there).
