Palestinian protesters shoot at Bush, Blair photos

From The Jerusalem Post another example of picking the losing side
Some 10,000 Palestinians reportedly thronged the streets and alleyways of the refugee camp in the West Bank town of Jenin on Thursday, chanting for Saddam Hussein to bomb Tel Aviv and shooting at photographs of President Bush and Prime Minister Blair.

The protest was held on the one year anniversary of Operation Defensive Shield in which dozens of Israeli soldiers and Palestinians died during an IDF sweep for terror suspects in the camp.

According to Israel Radio, 10,000 protesters marched through the streets, carrying signs and chanting slogans that called on Saddam Hussein to attack Tel Aviv.

The radio played the sound of the crackle of gunfire being aimed by protesters at huge posters of US President George W. Bush and British Premier Tony Blair that were held up in the town square.

Earlier this week, Palestinian officials renamed the square to honor the Iraqi suicide bomber who killed four US Marines in southern Iraq on Saturday.
