Banksy should have done one with a bunch of naked women or an orgy going down on the other side

 

good one!

i think banksy is much more politically inclined than that...besides this perfectly illustrates why people in the middle east feel such disgust agasinst westerners. while they risk their lives on daily basis to stand up for the little freedoms they do have, all we can reply with is sexual fantasies!

So,

 

they caught him in the act, and didn't arrest him?

 

 

He was on the Palestinian side critisizing israel. So the palestinians wouldnt care.

If we asume the wall is Israeli, it would start a diplomatic thriller if anything happened to a brit that just painted on the wall granted banksy made sure that thiw was all over the media.

 

but fuck all that,

Banksy is fuckin awesome.

Please correct me if I'm wrong, but are you saying that the soldiers wouldn't have killed banksy b/c he is a British citizen, and it would have stirred up a media shitstorm? With the fact that it was night and probably would have been difficult to distinguish his nationality, and the recent events that surely have all soldiers on edge aside, here are some links that basically prove otherwise.

#2

 

#3

 

#4

 

And that BARELY scratches the surface....needless to say the Israeli soldiers are beyond a little bit trigger happy. They shoot at anything that moves. Also, this is why I find it very hard to believe they only would only say "What the fuck are you doing?" So no one here has the full story I guess? Definitely a dope spot, idea, and well executed, but I am quite curious on how banksy avoided a few extra breathing holes.

 

 

"What fucking fascists those hypocrite jews are."

MY IRONY DETECTOR IS GOING HAYWIRE!!!!!!!!REEORREEEORREEEOR!!!

glad to be living in the united states where I can buy a nudie mag and not get stoned to death for purchasing it thank you very much.

 

this perfectly illustrates why the united states thinks the middle east is so fucked. A woman so much as reveals an ankle over there and the village elders have her put into an industrial plastic shredder.

I think you're right MrJack, but that's because average Joe doing throwups or burners isn't socially/politically relevant.

 

Banksy's scenes are relevant to what's occuring. He put htought into what these images consisted of. Average Joe on the other hand...well, I can't say the same thing for the guy.

hmm, this has just come to mind...

 

i know tonnes of writers who (for example) could have gone over and dropped a fucking nice burner along with a little (or big) thing or idea similar to banksy yet they would never have got the same attention. say a crew did a production with a theme similar to banksy's im sue there would have been multiple arrrests or shootings.

 

but its banksy, the media's standard first point of call (in the uk at least) when anything graff related comes up.

Israel could give a fuck about graffiti. Ya'll blabbing about how the IDF loves killing people, you dont know jack, I've lived there its nothing like this propaganda shit your spewing. You can go up to a solidier and ask them "can I paint this wall?" and they'll say "ok", and watch you. No one cares about graffiti when there are more pressing issues at hand such as islamic militants who want to blow themselves up and kill israeli civilians.

 

They probably took their safeties off because he refused to tell them what he was doing.

 

But of course he puts a negitive spin on the whole situation because thats why he went to israel.

 

Banksy, you're a publicity chasing whore.

I lived there for 2 years and lived and hung out with people who haved lived there all there lives and the threat of violence is in the back of everyones minds but we went on with our lives. Thats it. The attitude is if i go its sad but damned if i stay in my house crying and scared. If she thinks everyones panic stricken she must be crazy.
