Little joy in Bethlehem, Part II

After a lengthy delay, Obama’s convoy is en route to Bethlehem, two hours behind schedule.

The TOI’s Elhanan Miller reports that Palestinians in the Deheysheh refugee camp in Bethlehem are protesting against Obama’s visit to the city. One sign there reads: “No to the American-Israeli coalition. Occupation will last forever.”

The official radio station Voice of Palestine is playing nationalistic songs, with no mention of Obama, Miller reports, unlike the blanket minute-by-minute coverage in the Israeli media.
