Barack Obama at the West Bank

Via Little Green Footballs, here's Palestinian artist Walid Ayyub completing a portrait of Barack Obama in Ramallah, West Bank:


As Barack Obama prepares to visit the city of Ramallah in the West Bank, a Palestinian artist sketches Obama among his other portraits of Jesus, “martyred” Hamas terrorist Abdel Aziz Rantisi (“The Pediatrician of Death”), and Che Guevara.

With a peace dove, of course. You couldn’t make this up.

This is a truly beautiful image.The first time i saw this, it almost made me cry.Iam an American and i thought that all the people on that side of the World hated us i found that this is not nescerily true.It is how we treat one one another and respect one another.I am also African so that mean so much to me to see someone like me with such a positive image on the world.It makes me feel like i want to do more no matter what or who we are.Black,White,Asian,Arab,Hispanic
or whatever.We are all God's children.Children of the Most High.
