Ramallah baker makes Barack bagel in honor of visit
Palestinian baker Nasir Abdul Hadi is so grateful Barack Obama is making time to visit the West Bank that he has named a bagel after him.
The presumptive Democratic nominee for U.S. president is spending a few hours in this West Bank city today, as part of a Mideast tour. Obama's Republican challenger, John McCain, did not visit the West Bank during a recent trip. The Obama bagel was on display yesterday at Abdel Hadi's bakery in downtown Ramallah. It's baked with cherry tomatoes and mint.
Despite the baker's enthusiasm, many Palestinians displayed little interest in the Obama visit. Many believe the U.S. is biased in Israel's favor and that this is unlikely to change after the November elections.
