a restaurant owner near the israeli erected wall has come up with a novel idea to attract customers : he posts his menu "on the wall" - so his customers can easily see "what's on the menu" .

A restaurant owner in the Palestinian town of Bethlehem has come up with a novel use for the Israeli-built concrete wall that passes his premises.

Tourists and locals alike can now choose their meals from a menu painted on to the West Bank barrier.

Bahamas seafood restaurant has recently reopened, after closing due to lack of business in recent years.

Israel says the barrier - part fence and part wall - is for security, but Palestinians see it as a land grab.

Bethlehem residents also say that the barrier has strangled the town economically, and discouraged tourists from staying in the reputed birthplace of Jesus Christ.

"They put up this wall thinking they can suffocate us, but we are not going to suffocate - we are determined to make something nice out of this," said restaurant owner Charlie Butto.

@hamburger,
Now all they need is an intercom with someone to take the orders.

@Mame,
Or a large, erasable wall for the patrons to write down their orders on before they choose a seat
