Osama Bin Laden, the terrorist, has become a propaganda tool in Johannesburg summit. The summit deals with issues of the environment, ecology and welfare but has become a stage for confrontations between Jews and Muslims.
In a demonstration for the release of Tanzim leader Maruan Baragutti, several South African Muslims wore shirts featuring the portrait of Bin Laden. Along side the terrorist, the face of American president Bush is seen with a red X painted over.
Peleg Reshef, head of the South African Jewish student organization said he also saw Muslim demonstrators wearing shirts with the name â€œAl Quaidaâ€ .
Israeli officials who attend the summit, said it is regrettable that a year after the terror attack on American targets, Osama Bin Laden has become a figure of admiration and identification.
