Haha think I'm going to sit this one out. Seems like a lot of ppl are already there waiting.

I think it's funny watching people on FB ask for friends who possibly live in Israel to help. I've noticed all conversations end with "sure I'll help. Where is it? Um no..that's Palestine."

LOL ^^^ This so much this. I have some Jewish friends in the area and it's just short of insane/insulting to ask them to go to Palestine... I feel this is likely part of the point of this exercise to make greedy , lazy westerners realize that people legit wont go there for fear of there lives.

I took a bus to Ramallah from East Jerusalem no problem. Another goes directly to the UNRWA building in Bethlehem. I mean, sure it's not Tel Aviv as far as safety goes, but it's not Beirut, either. (Those with Lebanese or Iranian passports would have to enter through Jordan, though . . .)

fingers crossed. my palestinian friend says he knows some people that might be able to help (and make some $$$ on the top). kinda hard to work out details and logistics though when there doesn't seem anyone that knows when anything is going to be available at the store. not really getting my hopes up on anything as it is still a long shot, but if something gets sorted... i'd be pretty happy.

The print is reportedly unsigned, unnumbered, no certification, yet people are foaming at the mouth. These are mementos for when you get to visit the hotel, which is why they are available for in-person sale only. They are not OMGZ items to own/flip to the point where you beg for a PB online. Good luck getting your PB to get a rock or a grappling hook (when it becomes available) through security/customs/border agents. If you want a cheap Banksy so bad, go get yourself a Tesco Petrol Bomb or Soup Cans and call it a day. Also, generally speaking, if you want something really badly, maybe it's not the best idea to advertise it publicly and increase competition for yourself. Y'all are lame. :)

I know this might be blasphemous, but while that image is cool the one on the tshirt with the pillow fight is great. i wish that was the print.

People will do what they want. Just sharing my observations. Essentially, these are nothing to go nuts over, in my view. I thought the latter was a given on a forum, but maybe I need to put it in italics.
