Banksy mocks Trump on Israeli Apartheid Wall

Bansky designed early this year paintings for a Palestinian hotel built adjacent to the Israeli Apartheid Wall in Bethlehem

Palestinians woke up on Friday morning to see two big murals drawn on part of Israeli Apartheid Wall mocking US President Donald Trump.

The Palestinians and their supporters around the world often refer to the wall as the Apartheid Wall, the Separation Wall and the Racist Wall

Palestinians woke up on Friday morning to see two big murals drawn by Banksy on part of Israeli Apartheid Wall mocking US President Donald Trump.

On the concrete barricades erected by the Israeli occupation in the occupied West Bank, giant spray-painted images of Trump have given constricted Palestinians some comic relief.

The first mural shows Trump wearing a Jewish skullcap and placing his hand on a wall and addressing it saying: “I am going to build you a brother.” This scene was taken from Trump’s visit to Jerusalem’s Western Wall, which Jews claim as their holiest site.

While the second mural shows Trump hugging and kissing an Israeli watchtower built into the wall; his left arm reaching around the tower with little pink hearts coming out of his mouth.pink hearts

Israeli Apartheid Wall has become a showcase of protest art voicing Palestinians’ fears that the Israeli occupation would undermine their dream of a future state by dividing the occupied West Bank into small cantons.

Wisam Salasaa, the owner of The Walled Off Hotel in Bethlehem, whose paintings were designed by Banksy said: “We cannot give any information [about the murals] at this time.”

Since Israel started its construction of the Wall in 2002, many Palestinian and international artists have displayed their art on it, protesting against its existence.

The Palestinians and their supporters around the world often refer to the wall as the Apartheid Wall, the Separation Wall and the Racist Wall.

In 2004, the International Court of Justice ruled that this wall is illegal and should be dismantled.
