Waving Hizbullah flags and chanting "Nasrallah, bomb Tel Aviv!", thousands of Palestinians rallied today in Ramallah and Shechem (Nablus) in a show of support for the Lebanese terror group in its conflict with Israel.

In addition, the protesters set American flags on fire (see the photo below), and voiced encouragement to the Iraqi insurgency to continue their attacks on US troops.

The rally in Ramallah was organized by – you guessed it – the Fatah movement, which is headed by PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas, and was joined by various other Palestinian organizations and terrorist groups.

Today's protests followed similar demonstrations held in Gaza in recent days, in which Palestinians burned Israeli flags and called on Hizbullah to hit Israel.

Of course, none of this is very surprising – during the first Gulf War back in 1991, Palestinians cheered when Saddam Hussein fired SCUD missiles at Israel, they have celebrated suicide bombing attacks in Tel Aviv and Jerusalem by handing out candy and sweets, and most recently they took to the streets to mourn Iraqi terrorist Abu Musab al-Zarqawi after he was killed by US troops.

But what is surprising is that so many people still just don't learn from all of this, and refuse to accept the fact that the Palestinians are not just foes of Israel, but of the US too.
