The humiliation of Israel: in Sidon, Lebanon

A local Marxist-Leninist party in Sidon (the Popular Democratic Party) worked for months on building a replica of the Israeli tank, the Merkava, to reproduce the humiliation of the Israeli army in South Lebanon.  On the anniversary of liberation of South Lebanon yesterday, the party had a donkey lead a procession of the replica of the Merkava.  At the end of the procession, the people of Sidon were invited to express their feelings toward the Israeli enemy.  Rocks, pebbles, rotten eggs and tomatoes hailed over the Merkava.  But there was a poor comrade from the Party who played the role of the Israeli commander of the tank. Suffice to say, that he suffered a large number of injuries--serious.
