Tens of thousands of Indonesian Muslims packed the streets of the capital Sunday in a mass showing of support for the Hamas-led Palestinian government and demanded an end to the West's economic boycott of the beleaguered regime. Supporters of the conservative Justice and Welfare Party, including many families with children, waved Palestinian flags and banners and collected donations. "One man, one dollar for Palestine," read one sign while another demonstrator held a picture of US President George W. Bush with the caption: "Don't worry, he's just a monkey." Police estimated the crowd, which filled Jakarta's central roundabout, at tens of thousands. There were no reports of incidents.
