President Obama’s recent Mideast trip included a press conference in Ramallah where he stood under a conspicuously large banner of Yassar Arafat, former chairman of the Palestine Liberation Organization, responsible for the deadly bombings of hundreds of innocent Israeli civilians.

Conservative pundits promptly questioned the willingness of our incessantly “optics” conscious president to be photographed against a backdrop of Arafat’s image.
