Where is PETA When You Need Them?

Obamamania has halted building permits for Jews and Arabs in Jerusalem, and it has also left the sweet little Gazelle exposed. Why PETA hasn't gotten involved is beyond me.
Construction requiring the approval of Jerusalem's district planning committee has been on hold for more than a month in all parts of the city due to concerns about creating new crises in ties with the US. (Reported by Haaretz)
Staff members of the Jerusalem District Planning and Building Committee have been instructed to halt their work in an effort to spare Israel further embarrassing incidents like the March announcement, during Vice President Joe Biden's visit to Israel, of plans to expand the Jewish neighborhood of Ramat Shlomo in northern Jerusalem.
Architects have said district committee chairwoman Ruth Yosef is not even signing off on plans that have already been approved, causing a backlog. The district committee has not met for over a month and upcoming hearings have been canceled. The architects say when they ask about the reason for the freeze on committee activity they are told it is because of U.S. President Barack Obama. The stoppage is also affecting approval by Arab developers for Palestinian residents of the city. The freeze is even likely to affect plans to fence off the Gazelle Valley in the western part of the city to protect a herd of gazelles that have been attacked by packs of stray dogs.
The tearing apart of graceful gazelles will thus be on the head of Obama. But the government of Netanyahu -- frozen like a "Gazelle" in the headlights, as it were -- appears unwilling to suffer another senseless confrontation.
Maybe Obama doesn't care about homes for Jews and Arabs, but you'd at least think he was concerned about those poor Gazelles.
(The wholesale sarcasm in this article is brought to from the mind of someone who is getting more fed up by the day with the foolishness of the Obama administration, especially as he poses in photo-ops with people who he actually believes are good, honest, America-lovers at a nuclear summit!)
