CHAMAN, Pakistan (AFP)--Thousands of people rallied Friday in southwest Pakistan, near the Afghan border, against Israel's strikes on the Gaza Strip, cheering support for Al-Qaeda's Osama bin Laden, police said. The rally in the town of Chaman was organized by the Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam political party and was the biggest yet in Pakistan against the Israeli campaign in Gaza, which has killed hundreds of Palestinians. "Our estimate is that there were more than 3,000 people at the rally," local police station chief Abul Latif said. "Long Live Osama bin Laden," protesters chanted as they marched through town carrying placards that read "Jihad is the only treatment for Israel," "Stop killing innocent people in Palestine" and "Stop atrocities against Muslims". They also chanted "Death to Israel, death to America and death to Britain". "Muslim countries should shut down the embassies of the U.S. and Israel, and declare jihad against Israel," local party leader Maulvi Mohammad Hanif told the crowd.
