    According to one of the anti-Palestinian commenters here:

    The article indicates that the banner was put up by Pro-Palestinian activists demanding 3G service in the West Bank.
    This was an important "We want cell phone service!" banner.  It wasn't a "Welcome President Obama!" banner.  It wasn't a "We love you Mr. President!" banner.  It was a banner demanding an upgrade in the level of cell phone service available in the West Bank.  Which (also according to the linked article) Israel has full control over.  Why does Israel control cell phone service in a country that isn't their own?  What business have they to make those decisions for a people who don't have the right to vote in Israel?

    Poor cell phone service in the West Bank?  As though Obama has any fucking involvement with THAT problem!

    What a tragedy that it was torn down!  Those savages!

    Struggle with dignity against injustice. IS there anything more honorable that a person can do?
