But I guess this photo isn't worth publishing:
Let's break it down a bit further;
The policeman is armed, probably with a standard M16A2, also, almost definitely with a magazine in already, although as he is not wearing a helmet, I assume that he does not have a round up the chamber. He is not even touching his weapon.
Now let's see how many members of the 'International Press' are in this image, discounting the one who took the photo;
At least five that I can see.
So this policeman is having the following done to him that any law enforcement agent I know would arrest someone for:
1. Someone in his face, not keeping a respectful distance
2. Touching him, whilst not illegal, is exceptionally close to 'assaulting an officer'
3. Initiating a fight with a law enforcement agent. This man holding the flag doesn't look to me, that his purpose is to give the nice officer a hug. 'Incitement'
With at least 6 members of the international press present, the photo and video footage of this policeman showing exceptional restraint doesn't get any air time. I guess he just needs to follow the stereotypical image of an Israeli thug and needs to bash this man around the head to get his 15 minutes of fame.
I can promise you that if the man holding the flag were to do what he is doing to an American or British policeman he would already have been laid out flat on the floor with the 'bracelets' being put on his wrists.
I guess the truth just hurts too much...

I'm not a deep and meaningful kind of guy. No, honest, I know I have this blog and that I live on Facebook and Twitter, but even so, I don't consider myself a 'sharer'. But here's the rub, I found an article that gives such resonating advice about stopping thinking like a victim, and to react and act like a hero, that I am going to share it with you here, in it's entirety:

I was still a smoker when I was a salesman and every time I went through security in the USA with a coffee in my hand, having just had a smoke outside, I'd set off the alarm bells. Apparently nicotine and caffeine were a potent mix.
Sadly it appears to me that in the decade (oy vey!) since then security has really not improved much.
I recently read an article over at HillBuzz about mixing death threats, attempted mass murder and liberalism together creating a weird outcome.
Here is a snippet from the article:
Riding the Orange Line to Midway or the Blue Line to O’Hare we run into plenty of TSA agents, whether we are going to the actual airports or not. Most of these people are circus clowns. They’re very young, sloppy, completely unprofessional in public, and couldn’t care less about how they’re seen behaving in their uniforms. 90% of the ones we see in TSA uniforms are black.
It sure feels like there is a very high minority hiring push for TSA agents — and that the standards for the jobs are very, very low. The pay, from what we hear, however, is very good, especially in this economy.
And the article concludes:
Increasingly, we believe we need Israelis to come in and restructure the TSA, weed out the bad and lazy apples, and give the entire outfit’s professionalism a serious upgrade, Liberals be damned.Go here, or here, or here to read the original article.
