UK: George Galloway leading the bloodlust.
|"I am here to glorify the resistance, Hezbollah. I am here to glorify the leader, Sheikh Hassan Nasrallah."|

|Police estimated that 7,000 people took part in the London rally but organisers said more than 20,000 people attended the march from Whitehall to Hyde Park, including families and representatives from various faiths. No arrests were made during the protest.
Organisers estimated that there were 2,000 people at the march in Manchester, while the police put the figure at "up to 1,000".
In Birmingham around 200 protestors took to the streets, police said there were about 100 people in Sheffield, and there were around 150 in Newcastle.
The flag of Lebanon was at the forefront of the London protest
The London protest grew larger by the time it reached the US embassy, where about 50 uniformed police officers and metal barricades also prevented the march from accessing the main door.
Marchers shouted slogans at the Grosvenor Square embassy, such as "George Bush, terrorist" and "Down, down, USA."
The flag of Lebanon, banners, and a handful of Hezbollah flags, were also waved in the direction of the building. "|
I saw some Hezbollah flags at protests in Dearborn, Michigan which is just vile. That would be like me coming out in support of the Jamaat-al-Muslimeen
in Trinidad. It makes all Muslims look bad.
