Banksy Vacations In Israel

"The ultimate activity holiday destination for graffiti writers". That is what Banksy considers the wall. He condemns the construction of the Israeli Wall. I also happen to think that fences may make good neighbors, but walls are made to be torn down. Or in this case, peeled away. Nine paintings on the Palestinian side (the party side I'm told). Apparently Israeli security forces even trained guns on him and fired in the air threateningly. I can't wait till our own Colorado congressman Tancredo gets his wall built for Mexico. At least Israel's reasoning is to defend against suicide bombers. Tancredo just hates mexicans.
