To Protect and Self-Serve

How cheering to read this morning that the government's security guards are threatening to go on strike.

Apart from their poor pay and conditions, it must be truly demoralising to protect corrupt
ministers. Leaders who close down security checkpoints, free recidivist murderers and send them guns and ammunition for the next assault.

By doing so, these guards are protecting the very people who are endangering their own families at home.

I hope the strike goes ahead and lasts a long time.
Let's see how Olmert, Livni and Ramon feel without protection.
Perhaps after a day or two they will appreciate the plight of citizens like this in Sderot, whom they have left unprotected so callously for so long.
