TWO men were charged last night with obstructing police and assault in violent clashes with police and the Prime Minister's vehicle as it tried to leave a Liberal party conference.

Protesters kicked, punched and fired projectiles at John Howard's car today after the prime minister, who has been supportive of Israel, emerged from a Liberal Party conference in Perth.

About 200 protesters had gathered outside the venue, many waving Lebanese and Palestinian flags. A number of the protesters clashed violently with police as Mr Howard left a Perth hotel after delivering a keynote address to the WA Liberals' state conference.
Two men were later charged - a 21-year-old with obstructing police and a 34-year-old with assaulting police. They are expected to appear in a Perth court on Monday.

Mr Howard had used his conference speech to attack Hezbollah, which is fighting Israel in southern Lebanon.
"It's not some kind of inspirational liberation organisation, it's a terrorist organisation," he said.
As the prime minister departed, the protesters surged towards his car, demanding an end to the war which has killed hundreds of civilians.
"We want peace," they chanted as they mobbed Mr Howard's vehicle.
At least one protester was taken away by police, before the demonstrators continued their protest through the streets of Perth.
Mr Howard had said there would be no lasting peace in the Middle East until both sides accepted the right for independent Israeli and Palestinian states.
"There must be an unconditional acceptance throughout the entire Arab world ... of Israel's right to exist in peace and stability, behind secure, internationally recognised boundaries," he told the conference.
"There has to be an equally unconditional acceptance, including on the part of the Israelis, of the need and the justice in the establishment of an independent Palestinian state.
"Until those two conditions are met there will never be a lasting settlement, there will never be lasting peace in the Middle East."
The ugly clashes overshadowed Mr Howard's address to Liberal conference, in which he pilloried Labor's policies on industrial relations and uranium mining - issues of particular weight in the resource-rich Western Australia.
