I knew it was only a matter of time before Mel Gibson's latest film was used as an instrument against the Jews.

From Ynet:

Inspired by US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice's visit to the area, some of the protesters chose to convey their message in an original way and dressed up as native-Americans.

At about 11 a.m. the protesters gathered at the Hawara roadblock south of Nablus, and held up signs in English denouncing the military roadblocks across the territories.

Several of the demonstrators, mainly children, were dressed up as native-Americans and wore traditional headdresses. One of the signs at the protest read, "The roadblocks are ruining the Palestinians' lives," while another poster aimed to juxtapose between the native-Americans, whose lands were stolen by the newcomers from Europe, and the Palestinians.

"The Indian wars are not over, Ms. Rice. We are still here too," the sign said.
