Palestinian protesters slam Obama over UN speech

Obama told the UN General Assembly on Wednesday that a state can only be established through negotiations with Israel.



Ramallah: Palestinian protesters have denounced President Barack Obama for his opposition to their bid to win UN recognition of a Palestinian state.

Dozens rallied on Thursday outside Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas` office in Ramallah.

They held up anti-Obama signs, including one reading "Obama the hypocrite" and another claiming the American president is siding "with killers against victims."

Obama told the UN General Assembly on Wednesday that a state can only be established through negotiations with Israel. The US has said it would block the recognition request in the Security Council.

Abbas says he prefers negotiations but disagrees with Israel over the starting point for talks.
