Ramallah: Palestinians march to support Hizbullah

August 1, 2006 17:00

More than 2,000 Palestinians denounced moderate Arab leaders in a march through Ramallah in support of Hizbullah on Tuesday. "Mubarak is a pig," protesters chanted, a reference to the Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak, who criticized Hizbullah in the first days of battles between the group and the Israeli army. The protesters also accused Jordan's King Abdullah of being a "collaborator of the Zionists and the Americans." "These days are days of Arab resurrection and days of humiliation for the Israeli military, the military that couldn't proceed (move ahead) into Lebanese land," said Hani Hassan, a leading member of Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas' Fatah Party.
