Mohammed El-Omrani Urban, an Arab painter living in Gaza, has been painting three-dimensional pictures on rooftops. I suppose this is the first Palestinian artist catering specifically to the artistic pleasures of Israeli Airforce pilots.

Look at this haunting image of illegal African immigrants, mostly from Eritrea and the Sudan, protesting outside the Holot detention center, not far from Ktziot, in the Negev, southern Israel.
