Obama to skip Ramallah?

President Obama may skip Ramallah during his trip here next week. He will be meeting 'moderate' 'Palestinian' President Mahmoud Abbas Abu Mazen in Bethlehem.
US President Barack Obama could skip Ramallah during his upcoming visit to the region, a Palestinian Authority source said Wednesday.

Obama will meet President Mahmoud Abbas in Bethlehem and will spend only four hours in the West Bank during the trip, which will include a visit to the Nativity Church, said the government official, who spoke on condition of anonymity.

A spokesman for the US consulate in Jerusalem did not immediately return a call late Wednesday.

Washington has not yet released a schedule for the trip, but Obama is expected to arrive in Israel on March 20 and depart two days later after visiting the West Bank.
Of course. It's the Israelis he wants to pressure while he's here.

Would she have been invited if she were white?

ALSO, SEE LAST PARA IN ABOVE LINKED ARTICLE: Would the Ariel University student representatives have been invited if they were from some hard leftist university, located north, west or south of Jerusalem?

IMO, the answers to the above question are No and Yes, respectively. I'd better stop now, so that I don't rant and rave for pages and pages about America's Worst-President-Ever. (No, that's not Jimmy Carter. He has to settle now for Worst-President-Of-The-20th-Century.)

It would be hysterically funny if the BBC and the Guardian were 'forced' to print that their savior and lord Obama 'storming' Ramallah was the root cause of the 3rd intifada.
