VIOLENT MOB WANTS PEACE
The PM meets the peaceful:
Violent scuffles have broken out between police and Lebanese protesters who mobbed Prime Minister John Howard’s car as he left a Liberal Party conference in Perth.
Mr Howard was leaving the WA Liberal Party state conference when about 200 protesters, many of whom were waving Lebanese flags and shouting “we want peace”, mobbed his vehicle.
Protesters punched, kicked and threw projectiles at Mr Howard’s car as police struggled to keep them at bay.
The Ozbollah are displeased by an imagined global consensus:
One of the protesters accused Mr Howard of supporting Israel at Lebanon’s expense.
“The whole world is supporting Israel, the whole world is watching innocent people dying today as we speak,” he said.
