Controversial British Street Artist, Banksy Opens New Hotel In Bethlehem

Renowned British street artist Banksy has a new political statement, this time in the form of a hotel in Bethlehem
Banksy opened the hotel in an area destroyed by the conflict between Palestine and Israel. The Walled Off Hotel has ten rooms available for booking, complete with politically charged art on each wall. The purpose of the hotel, he says, is to bring tourism and jobs to a region whose economy has been crippled. The artist also hopes to begin a dialogue surrounding the conflict.
