Boneheads Protesting Iraqi Elections...

... in Australia.

Tim Blair has a picture of one of the protestors wearing a Karl marx shirt (huh?) and waving a red flag. Half of the flag is cropped out of the picture, but the part I can see says (in Arabic) "No to Terrorism" and then what looks like a modifying noun.

I wonder what Protesty Boy thinks of Marxist terrorism. Is it okay, as long as it's committed in the name of a cause he supports? By protesting the Iraqi elections, he is very clearly on the side of the terrorists who keep threatening voters. Some of the protestors ally themselves with al-Zarqawi more directly:

"Mr Hogan said [the protesters] were holding the same black flag with white lettering that has appeared as a backdrop in videos released by Iraqi insurgents featuring foreign hostages."

Just something to think about.
