PA Arabs Spray Paint ‘Obama’ Banner with Swastikas

PA Arabs already have put banana peels on a spiked carpet for Obama’s visit to Bethlehem. Vandals sprayed swastikas on an Obama banner. Then a car ran over it and others set the banner on fire.

Palestinian Authority Arabs in Bethlehem set fire to a “Welcome Obama” banner after it was spray-painted with swastikas and run over by a taxi cab on Monday.

President Barack Obama is scheduled to visit the city, immediately south of Jerusalem and north of the Gush Etzion town of Efrat, on Friday with a tour of the Church of Nativity.

Anti-American Arabs have made no secret that they are going to do everything they can to show President Obama he is not welcome.

Activists on Monday gave Obama an advance warning of what is in store for him. They tore down a billboard that was posted at Manager Square, next to the church.

In place of the billboard that was part of a campaign to tell Obama that there is not 3G telecommunications technology in the Palestinian Authority, the activists unfurled a banner proclaiming, “No one shall be subjected to torture or to cruel, inhuman degrading treatment or punishment.”

“In light of the anti-Palestinian U.S. position, Obama is a persona non grata in Bethlehem,” Munthir Amira, chairman of a youth center in Aida refugee camp, told the Bethlehem-based Ma’an news agency.

“It is time the US administration understands that the question of Palestine is the core of conflict in the region. Without a just solution to the question, there will be no stability in the region.”

Before visiting Bethlehem, the president on Thursday will travel to Ramallah, where security will be tighter than a drum when his helicopter lands.

“The city will be in lockdown, its streets empty, with U.S. snipers positioned on rooftops,” the London Telegraph reported. “Anti-American protesters will be kept at a distance, where the president will not be able to see or hear them.”

The worst Obama will see are posters proclaiming “President Obama: Don’t bring your Smartphone to Ramallah … We have no 3G in Palestine” and thousands of black balloons protesting American policy.

After a relatively short lunch with PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas, Obama’s helicopter will whisk him back to Jerusalem for a continuation of his sterilized 52-hour visit.

    Hopefully Obama will realize that giving these anti American terrorist are not worth spending our tax dollars on.

  2. Not likely. He is for this perverse strengthening of America's enemies otherwise, why would he have armed the Muslim Brotherhood when he could have fed a state of poor families with the same money!

  3. Andee Goldman says:

    Can you please tell me why anyone with an Israeli ID is not allowed in Bethlehem? Is it by the Israeli government to protect Israeli citizens or the PA? Such hate.

  4. Alan Kardon says:

    I said Hopefully.

  5. It is to ensure that the IDF doesn't have to go in a level the town to save their stupid rear ends when the Arabs find out that they are Israelis and are lynching them.

  6. The most pro-Arab American President in history and the Arabs hate him – go figure.

    As for "he question of Palestine is the core of conflict in the region" it a total crock of . The core conflict is Muslim xenophobia. Muslims hate everybody including other Muslims and demand as a right to kill everybody else. That is the core conflict in the region.

  7. Andee Goldman says:

    Why are we silent about this? If it were the Palestinans not allowed into Israel, then the world yells.

  8. Andee Goldman says:

    Why are we silent about this? If it were the Palestinans not allowed into Israel, then the world yells.

  9. I thought Bethlehem is King David's royal city, so why are the Israelis not allowed into their own town?

  10. Andee Goldman says:

    Sientje, it is. Somehow the fact has been forgotten. In order to have peace, the PA was given the control over the city.

  11. I WILL BE KEYNOTE SPEAKER AT CONGREGATION SONS OF ISRAEL IN MANALAPAN, MONDAY NIGHT APRIL 8 AT 7:30 and will not participate in the interfaith program. ALL ARE INVITED. I AM SPEAKING FREE OF CHARGE. The Imam said he would join with me declaring that here in America there is no room for Muslims callings Jews apes and for the destruction of the Jewish people as Morsi of Egypt did. This promise to me was never fulfilled. MY AGREEING FOR THE IMAM TO LEAVE BEFORE HATIKVAH WAS BASED ON HIS FULFILLING THIS PROMISE.

    I have resigned from the Metuchen-Edison Area Interfaith Clergy Association due to this. For you who are new, to the association, I served as President and Vice President in the past and chaired many programs. It hurts me greatly that I had to make this decision. I wish you all the best of success. RABBI DR. BERNHARD ROSENBERG

  12. The world always believes the Arabs. No matter how outrageous the lie – it is always our fault and their lie will be the one that the world believes.

  13. Alan Kardon says:

    Maybe we should have Obama go there when he is in Israel.

  14. Alan Kardon says:

    Bethlehem is sacred to Christians as well as Jews. Why are we not controlling this place?

  15. IT shows that they have a pretty good life if all they have to complain about is lack of 3G access.

  16. Steve Loeb says:

    " “No one shall be subjected to torture or to cruel, inhuman degrading treatment or punishment.”.

    Was that before or after they called the Jewish people descendents of pigs and apes and bloodsuckers?

  17. Zach Harrison says:

    Weird, I seem to recall Obama fully funding the Iron Dome project for Israel's safety.

  18. Alan Kardon says:

    He should, he gave 16 F16 fighter jets to Egypt. He gave 10+ billion dollars military aid to the Arab coalition. He has not stopped Iran from developing nuclear weapons. Now what do you think they will do with all these Weapons?

  19. Anonymous says:

    The word “Taqiyya” literally means: “Concealing, precaution, guarding with the intention of deflecting attention, foiling or pre-emptive blocking. It is currently employed in fending off and neutralising any criticism of Islam or Muslims.

    Falsehoods told to prevent the denigration of Islam, to protect oneself, or to promote the cause of Islam are sanctioned in the Qur’an and Sunna, including deceiving by making distorted statements to the media such as the claim that Islam is a “religion of peace”. he Recently an IMAM WALKED OUT BEFORE THE SInging OF HATIKVAH at an holocaust interfaith service. HE TOLD US BEFOREHAND HE WOULD DO SO. I refused to attend and resigned from the organiztion. I created the holocaust service and formally served as president of the organization. The Iman promised me he would have a press conference with me declaring in America we will not listen to Morsi and others who call Jews Apes and ask for our destruction. The press conference. was never held. Parts of Europe are becoming Judenrein BEN ROSENBERG.
