President Barack Obama’s helicopter touched down in Ramallah Palestinian Authority headquarters shortly after 11 a.m. Thursday, preventing him from seeing the “unwelcome” signs that were posted in the area.
President Obama immediately began discussions with PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas after an extremely brief welcoming ceremony.
Signs that Obama did not see, according to the Bethlehem-based Ma’an news agency, were:
— Obama: Stop supporting Israeli war crimes;
— USA-Israel-UK: The triangle of horror;
— USA is a party to the conflict and is not neutral; and
— USA voted for occupation Nov. 29, 2012
Approximately 300 protesters gathered in Ramallah’s downtown square and shouted slogans of incitement and outright calls for attacks on Israel.
Among the shouts were, “We don’t want anything peaceful, only bullets and missiles,” and other called Obama a “devil.”
