Wow. Just wow.
Forget what his prints are worth.
Forget about the money you will make when you sell his print/prints that you own.

He is truly a great man.

Awareness!

Bring it, Banksy, bring it!

I feel like that beat was sampled on an older DJ Shadow album. (EDIT) It was an older HErbaliser album I used to bang all the time. Man that drove me crazy trying to remember where I knew it from.

This is true and that is so completely messed up and disgusting, but Egypt Vs. Israel regarding who should F OFF? Israel gets my vote.

I suspect it would get Banksy's F OFF vote as well.

back to the WOW's....

Pretty good art, but what a sad load of one-sided misrepresented crap. And to see him using the tunnels the terrorists Hamas used/uses to hide their weapons and their terrorists in their efforts to kidnap and murder - just awful. Welcome to the topsy turvy world of moral equivalency and turning the terrorists into the victims. What a shame for an otherwise seemingly talented artist. It's a shame he forgot to do any art on the unmarked graves of those who Hamas kills for being gay or for supporting any opposition or for supporting any attempts at seeking a peaceful solution with its neighbors. Too bad he doesn't seem to know or understand the history of Gaza and how Israel pulled out every single one of the thousands of Jews who lived there in order to try to give those living there the chance to build a peaceful society that could finally reach a safe peace living side by side, but in response the people of Gaza elected an avowed terror group as their government and proceeded to use the area as a launching ground for missiles and kidnapping and attempted murder. Talented artist being used as a tool by terrorists. A true shame. If only he would use the opportunity to support those who actually seek peace rather than those who unabashedly seek death.

Think Banksy just wanted to show how drymounted up places can be in the world. Not really surprised some of you read into it more than that. Typical American over opinion BS comments. Great work !!!! I don't see other artist with enough balls to pull this off. :clap:

Cute (and clever). And in this case "our side" would be the side of Hamas, so that's correct. And hopefully "time" will tell and Hamas will not succeed in its goal of destroying not only every person in Israel but every Jew on earth (maybe Banksy and those cheering him for this stunt should read the Hamas charter and explain why they support a group that is clear in its intent to never negotiate for peace and to kill every Jew alive). http://dailycaller.com/2014/07/22/9-thi ... s-charter/

Sorry to be a buzz kill but to some of us this is very personal.
