large signs appeared over the past few days in a bid to draw US President Barack
Obama’s attention to the fact that Palestinians in the West Bank still don’t
have the 3G Internet service.
The posters read: “President Obama, don’t
bring your smart phone to Ramallah; you won’t have mobile access to Internet; we
nave no 3G in Palestine!” It was not clear on Sunday who was responsible for the
posters. Some Palestinians said they did not rule out the possibility that the
two local mobile phone companies, Jawwal and Wataniyeh, were behind the signs
