Remember the Iraqi who took off his shoe, and hit the poster of Saddam with it? To show someone the bottom of your shoe is a vile insult, according to Arab custom. Thus, we find the Al Aqsa Brigades marching on an Israeli flag, painted for that very purpose. These particular terrorists (no, militants; no, activists; no, legitimate military personnel) want all Palestinian prisoners released from Israeli incarceration, including those who have murdered Israeli civilians in activist attacks. THIS IS NOT REQUIRED OF ISRAEL IN THE ROAD MAP, but unfortunately, the Israeli government is on a concession binge and may very well release hundreds more prisoners in the near future, as a "gesture of good will." To be accompanied by the arrest of Israeli patriots, no doubt.

You've got to hand it to the Arabs: they know who their enemy is, and behave accordingly.
