Trump and Netanyahu kiss

<p>Romance between Donald Trump and Benjamin Netanyahu – who would have thought? </p> <p>That’s the theme of yet another surprising mural that has popped up on the West Bank wall, depicting the US president and the Israeli leader exchanging a kiss. <br /> As their lips touch, words above their heads depict a dialogue, with Netanyahu saying, “Thanks for the wall Trumpy pumpkin,” and Trump responding: “Bebe your country and you will always come first my love.”</p> <p><img src="https://static.euronews.com/articles/39/85/398579/670x460_bonus-3010-trump-netanyahu-kiss-westbank.jpg" alt="" /></p> <p>The Banksy-like piece is believed to be the work of Australian graffiti artist Lushsux. </p> <p>Speaking to Reuters earlier, a man who had his face covered but identified himself as the artist said: “The wall is a message in itself, I don’t need to write ‘Free Palestine’ or something like that, something really direct… that people will ignore.</p> <p>“I just paint what I usually paint and maybe people will start looking at the background and looking at the razor wire and looking at people stuck in here, and maybe that will work better.”</p> <p>Lushsux is also held responsible for <a href="http://www.chicagotribune.com/entertainment/ct-donald-trump-west-bank-murals-20170805-story.html">two other West Bank wall murals</a> featuring the US president: one showing Trump kissing an Israeli watchtower, and the other depicting him placing his hand on the barrier and thinking about building a similar wall on the US border with Mexico.</p> <blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="fr"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Amateur Trump acting amorously towards an Israeli watchtower in Bethlehem.

For Palestinians, it is seen as an <a href="http://www.aljazeera.com/programmes/general/2007/11/200852518465249175.html">apartheid wall</a> and has become a showcase for protest art.</p>
