Video: Dozens of Activists Remove Sign Depicting Obama in Bethlehem.

; PNN On Monday 18th March, dozens of young Palestinians and activists in Bethlehem governorate removed a sign that portrays the picture of the US President Barack Obama, few days before his visit to Bethlehem and Ramallah within his tour to the Middle East. Dozens of activists removed the sign placed on top of one of the buildings near the Nativity Church in Bethlehem and raised banners that confirm the Palestinian rights for freedom and independence. They also chanted slogans that denounced the US support for the Israeli policies. The activists expressed their opposition to Obama's visit to the Palestinian territories and said that Obama will come to the Palestinian territories as a "tourist" and that he is not planning to propose a political plan that would lead to the resumption of the peace process and the cease of the Israeli settlement construction plans in the Palestinian territories.
