Hardline Muslims brandishing toy guns and fake explosive belts rallied outside the US embassy in Indonesia on Tuesday to protest Israeli attacks on Lebanon. Some protesters said they wanted to travel to the Middle East to fight the Jewish state. "We ask the government to (transport us to Lebanon) so we can help our brothers and sisters there who are being killed and ravaged by Israel and America, the enemies of Islam," said Allawi Usman, a protest leader. Police confiscated toys guns and fake explosive belts from several of the protesters.
