Barack Obam Posters Jerusalem Western Wall

The caption of this image on Reuters is “Supporters of U.S. Democratic presidential candidate Senator Barack Obama (D-IL) stand behind banners printed with his name in Hebrew as they wait for his arrival at the Western wall.” The caption obviously implied that supporters put the pro-Obama material.

However according to World Net Daily, this was definitely not the case. The Barack Obama campaign arrived before Barack Obama’s early morning visit and placed these posters to create an image of support that does not necessarily exist.

Israeli police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld confirmed to WND posters that adorned police barricades erected at the Western Wall plaza for Obama’s visit were distributed by the presidential candidate’s campaign.

“These posters were his campaign and not the doing of the police,” said Rosenfeld, whose police department coordinated security and provided protection for Obama’s visit today to the holy site.

Asked if it was traditional practice for politicians visiting the Western Wall to bring along posters or campaign materials, Rosenfeld replied, “No.”

Who is this meant to fool? Can we expect more of the same on Barack Obama’s Germany trip?
