Street Artist Banksy Opens Controversial New Hotel in Bethlehem
The 10-room property has views of the controversial separation wall that cuts through the West Bank, dividing Israel and the Palestinian territories.
The British artist advertised the hotel as containing the “worst views in the world.”
The wall has long served as a flash point between Israelis and Palestinians, as the Israeli government refers to it as a security measure, but many Palestinians claim it is a form of apartheid that strangles their personal and professional lives.
It's not the first time the artist has produced work related to the Israeli Palestinian conflict. In the past 12 years, Banksy has created works of graffiti in Israel and the Palestinian territories protesting Israeli treatment of the Palestinian people, according to AFP.
