Standing atop a creaky wooden platform above a muddy, fenced-in field, protester Bob Kunst gave a dozen or so cardboard rubbish bins near the Democratic National Convention a piece of his mind.
Protest groups shouted and halted traffic Sunday outside the Washington convention center where President Obama spoke before the annual meeting of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, the country's largest pro-Israel lobbyist.
He warned against Iran acquiring nuclear weapons.
"They said if the scheduled speaker didn't show up, I could speak," said Mr. Kunst, a 70-year-old Miami Beach, Fla., resident and president of Shalom International, a pro-Israel group.
