This is one of the most awful buildings on the world: the West Bank Barrier. The Berlin Wall was a work of art compared to this one. Cyprus' Nicosia Wall seems tiny when you see this one...
I've never seen tha wall separing Mexico from the USA, but this wall is absolutely horrible.
You only can get angry when you see something like this.
In 2006 I've been to a Roger Waters concert, the guy who composed Pink Floyd's "The Wall" album. During one of the songs you could read on a giant screen "Fear Builds Walls". He is absolutely right. By The way, Roger Waters made a Graffiti on this wall in june 2006.
British Graffiti Artist Bansky made a few paintings in Bethlehem's wall, which can be seen here.
The aim of the wall is to mark a clear border between Israel and the Palestinian Territories to ensure security in Israel. I really doubt this is efficient and I don't think it can be a long-term solution to solve the conflict.
Shortly after entering Bethlehem there's the Palestinian Heritage Center.
It displays exhibits on traditional Arabic Palestinian life and history. Unfortunately it was closed when we visited...
