Palestinians see Obama as their savior

Thursday, May 13, 2010 |  Israel Today Staff

Roadside signs and billboards put up as part of a new public relations campaign in the Palestinian Authority-controlled territories are hailing US President Barack Obama as the savior of the Palestinian Arabs.

The signs read: "Barack Obama, free us from slavery, occupation and the settlements."

The campaign, dubbed "Dear Barack," was started by a local Palestinian radio station and has quickly gained public and official support, according to the PA's Wafa news agency.

As part of the campaign, individual Palestinians have also been sending emails to Obama's personal address, urging him to become a true historical hero by freeing them from what they call Israeli oppression.
