The street artist Banksy moved his annual "Santa's Ghetto" art show to Bethlehem this year. By picking a place with such intense, enduring religious and political tensions in a time when many are celebrating ideals of love and generosity, he's trying to prod our conscience. We really like his approach:


"We would like to make it very clear Santa's Ghetto is not allied to ANY race, creed, religion, political organization or lobby group. ...This show simply offers the ink-stained hand of friendship to ordinary people in an extraordinary situation.

Every shekel made in the store will be used on local projects for children and young people. Not one cent will go to any political groups, governmental institutions or, in fact, any grown-ups at all."
