Worldwide Anti-Annapolis Protests: Day 1

It would seem that the entire ummah is on fire in protest against the farce of a conference in Annapolis. Finally, I am in agreement with the ummah on something (though I'd imagine for far different reasons). The highlight of today's protests? Perhaps the coolest portrait of Condoleeza Rice ever published, even outshining my previous fave:

I'll be rounding up the other highlights from around the world following the fold. Stay tuned for more!

Update: Someone has definitely been very busy spreading the propaganda about the Annapolis conference. Notice how all of these protests suggest that somehow, the United States and Israel are either conspiring to revoke the "right" of return, or how we're conspiring to seize Al-Aqsa. Very interesting coincidences, no?

(Regarding the "right" of return:—Keep in mind that with respect to any "peace" conference assembled, Palestinians demand an independent state of their own on one hand, yet they demand that Palestinian "refugees" maintain the "right" to return to Israel on the other. Sound confusing? Yeah, it might be—until you take a look at which map they are working from... It's all about "conquest," people. Nothing more, nothing less.)

UPDATE: According to the latest captions coming in, a man has been killed by Fatah security forces in Hebron, after being shot point-blank in the chest. Reports are that 15 other protesters have also been injured in the area—no specifics or details on them yet.

"Palestine": Gaza Terror-tory


Straight from the heart of the Jew-hating part of the world. There's actually a really big rally going on in Gaza right now.

Interesting: The black flags being hoisted in the photograph below are the official flag of Jihad. Is it possible that Hamas was attempting to stage its coup on the West Bank while Abbas was out of town? That would certainly explain the severity of the "moderate" Fatah party's crackdown on these "spontaneous" anti-Annapolis protests...

U.S President George W. Bush stepped cautiously into the most direct Mideast peacemaking of his administration, meeting separately with the leaders of Israel and the Palestinian Authority to explore whether peace is possible. 'Difficult compromises' will be required but the Israeli and Palestinian leaders are committed to making them, he said. .(AP Photo/Nasser Shiyoukhi)

Iran


I'm hearing reports that there were protests over Annapolis in Iran today as well, but for some reason, I can't find any pictures from the major wire services about it. I'm digging to see if I can find them, will hopefully have them here before too long.

Bizarro Land


I should've known that the cretins of Neturei Karta (the only Orthodox Jews that are loved by the press) would make a showing. Thanks to their (nameless) donors, they never seem to run out of money when it comes to being wherever they need to be to condemn Israel.

This next one's pretty cute, and is wonderfully illustrative of the short attention span that these types of leftist protests tend to suffer from. "Send a piana to Havana?" What's that got to do with the Israel/Palestinian conflict?

Love the next one, too. I can assure you, I've seen better caricatures before. (The one at the top of this page is still the best, though...)

Guffaw. Here's a Reuters caption update, just so we can't possibly be any more clear on how crazy these guys are:
