Watch Out, Obama!

The bombs are bursting in air in Jerusalem, according to reports. And right near Obama’s hotel, says CNN:

The driver of a backhoe was shot and killed after driving the construction machine over a number of vehicles near the Jerusalem hotel where Sen. Barack Obama is scheduled to stay Tuesday night, according to police.

Arab spokesmen on BBC are questioning whether the backhoe driver was really a terrorist. Maybe he was just a New York cabbie who returned home for a visit.
