2 activists who put up 'Bush in kaffiyeh' posters released from custody

A Jerusalem court released two of the detainees. The judge said that portraying a person wearing a kaffiyeh does not constitute a racist act, and merely testifies to the authors' lack of taste. No charges are expected to be pressed against the two. Earlier the youths were detained with four others as they were hanging posters depicting Bush, Olmert and Peres wearing Palestinian kaffiyehs, with a banner running "accomplices to terror". The youths told police that they were paid to hang the posters by extreme right-wing activist Itamar Ben Gvir, of the National Jewish Front, who was also detained for questioning.
