Two ultra-Orthodox Jewish men protect themselves inside a bus from Palestinian rioters outside Jerusalem's Old City on Wednesday, Sept. 22, 2010. Violence erupted after a 32-year-old Palestinian laborer was killed by a private security guard watching over Jewish families in the Silwan neighborhood in east Jerusalem. During the man's funeral, a mob of protesters set tires on fire, smashed the windows of several buses and called for revenge. (AP Photo/Bernat Armangue)
