‘Spontaneous’ Arab Riots a Message from PA to Obama
The “spontaneous” riots in Judea and Samaria in recent days are actually a message from the Palestinian Authority to Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and United States President Barack Obama, IDF Major-General (ret.) Oren Shachor told Arutz Sheva.
“There’s something organized here, maybe for Obama’s visit. They’re interested in a breakthrough, and they want a solution for the prisoners, too,” he said.
Obama is planning to visit Israel in March. Top U.S. officials have said that Obama plans to listen to both Israeli and PA leaders, and then possibly to formulate a peace plan.
