Palestinians called Mubarak a "pig"

Trust the Palestinians to tell it like it is:

More than 2,000 Palestinians denounced moderate Arab leaders in a march through Ramallah in support of Hizbullah on Tuesday.

"Mubarak is a pig," protesters chanted, a reference to the Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak, who criticized Hizbullah in the first days of battles between the group and the Israeli army.

The protesters also accused Jordan's King Abdullah of being a "collaborator of the Zionists and the Americans."
While it won't reach the magic three-letter word in Egypt, what I've seen in the press since I got back is scathing. People are very pissed off indeed.
