Palestinian baker makes Obama bagel in honor of upcoming 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 US president will spend a few hours in Ramallah on Wednesday, as part of a Middle East tour. Obama's Republican challenger, John McCain, did not visit the West Bank during a recent trip. The Obama bagel was on display Tuesday 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 there believe the US is biased in Israel's favor and that this is unlikely to change after the November elections.
