Protesters threw shoes and eggs at a poster of US President Barack Obama on Monday, at a rally held in Tel Aviv to protest what organizers called the "brutal" treatment of Israel by the Obama administration.

The demonstration, which was held on the Tel Aviv promenade across the street from the U.S. embassy, was attended by a few dozen protesters, including far-right activist Baruch Marzel and organizer Ori Bar-Am, who told the Jpost Sunday the rally was meant to show that Obama's agenda “is harming the rights of Jews in the land of Israel, is anti-democratic, anti-America,” and asked “if Obama can be against the burning of the Koran, how can he kick around the bible?”
