Israel 2016 – Part 5

Let’s return to a photo I posted on an earlier blog.

DSCN7700 RE2

This is a wall on a street in Bethlehem in the West Bank. By now I have learned the story behind the art.

It is the work of Banksy, an English-based graffiti artist, political activist and film director of unverified identity. He is known for satirical street art on publicly visible walls. How he remains unidentified when he creates art in public places is a mystery to me.

On this piece you have to look closely to see the cross hairs of a gun or tank trained on the chest of the bulletproof-vest-wearing  dove of peace.
