I don't blame the Palestinians. I wouldn't get excited about a visit from Obama either.. They are finding out what many Americans already know. That is, that the Obamas promises and his actions are vastly different.

Palestinians unenthusiastic?--Wow! More common sense then many Americans.

I am sure the Israelis are enthusiastic about his visit. They know from his previous visits to Egypt and Germany that he isn't really in favor of Israel. However, the Palestinians do have to worry as this President hasn't really set up budgets, policies and a business plan for dealing with anything, except that in 2008, his wife was proud for the first time about the United States of America.

For two people that had the blessings of education in the United States of America in public and private educational opportunities at higher level schools, it seems like they would have been proud earlier on in life. He speaks down to his own nation as a whole and has not thanked the people for what he has been able to do with the freedoms of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness with his millions of dollars in property, including wealth.

Israel has always been under attack since 1947 from within and from outside. It ha not been an easy life for them surrounded by countries that have residents or governments always in a battle with the Israeli lifestyle and religion.

They have their country but not the media.

What a shocker to find the same old posters twisting everything I to a chance to Bach Obama. Had the headline read "palistinians cheer obama's visit," the same posters would bash him with claims of hating Israel and of course being cheered by extremist. Lets face it Obama could cure every il I. The world and gives Sara plain credit for it and these same posters would still post the same spiteful rhetoric.
