‘Obama, don’t bring your smartphone to Ramallah’

Posters protesting the absence of 3G communications technology in the West Bank have angered several Palestinian political activists, who on Sunday called on the PA to remove them from the streets of Ramallah and Bethlehem.
The 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 for purely commercial purposes.
