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...

A newspaper in New York has received a wave of criticism from its readers after publishing the names and addresses of all of the individuals with handgun or pistol permits in its coverage area.
Hundreds of residents in New York's Westchester and Rockland counties were surprised to find their names and addresses listed on a map posted by The Journal News on Sunday. Users can click any dot on the map to see which of their neighbors has a permit for a gun.The map sparked more than 500 comments from readers within a day of its appearance on the website, many of them voicing outrage at the paper's decision to make the information public.The full article can be found HERE
So what would a proportional response be for the individuals whose details were published? Track them down and leave a horse's head in their beds?
Oh no, they're a bunch of conniving ne'erdowells down there
The following has been published on literally hundreds of pro-gun blogs around the world
These are the phone numbers and addresses of the people that had the nerve to publish the names and addresses of the legal gun permit holders a few days ago in their news paper. Go and give em a piece of your mind.Oh yeah, these people gave as good as they got.
Apparently these are the addresses of the "journalists":
Journal News President: Janet Hasson, 3 Gate House Lane Mamaroneck, NY 10534 (914) 694-5204
Editors: Cyndee Royle, 1133 Westchester Ave., Suite N110, White Plains, NY 10604, 914-694-9300
Nancy Cutler 9 Woodwind Ln, Spring Valley, NY. (845) 354-3485
Parent company of The Journal News Gannett CEO Gracia C Martore 728 Springvale Rd Great Falls, VA 22066 (703) 759-5954
The reporter on the story is Dwight R Worley 23006 139 Ave Springfield Gardens, NY 11413 (718) 527-0832
Now try and Google your own names Janet Hasson, Cyndee Royle and Nancy Cutler. You won't be getting any relevant results until page 20 at least!

Personally I use an amalgam of my age, the year, my phone number, my sister's name (she has 5) and the postcode for my last abode.
Amichai Shulman is the chief technology officer at Imperva, which makes software for thwarting hackers. Recently, he undertook a study of 32 million passwords stolen by an unknown hacker from Rockyou!, an online service that makes widgets for social networking sites like Facebook.
The list is depressing testimony to our collective lack of creativity in the arena of personal security.
“I guess it’s just a flaw in human genetics,” Shulman told the New York Times.
Most people aren't so 'cautious' and use some very obvious passwords. Here are the top 20 in order of popularity:

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.
