      When a group of tattooed professional Jewish and non-Jewish graffiti artists from around the world descended on the quaint biblical city of Beit El, Israel National News TV's "Eye on Zion" was there! Watch as the unorthodox - and staunchly pro-Israel - 'Artists 4 Israel' transform a children's play center into a symbol of Zionism and Jewish pride.

       
      The world-famous artists, including NICER, 2ESAE, SKI, BELIN, MYRHWAYN, SUE WORKS and GREMS, arrived in Samaria as part of a solidarity mission to Ariel. A new cultural center in the college town was boycotted by Israeli theater artists and academics several months ago because it is located in Samaria. The 'Artists 4 Israel' trip was made possible by the City of Ariel, the One Israel Fund, and the Zionist Freedom Alliance.
       
      During the trip, the artists also spray-painted designs in Neve Yaakov, Shilo, and the Negev community of Sderot.
