    They are an embarassment to the US and should be terminated immediately.

    Israel: U.S. Consulate Car Tried to Run Over Checkpoint Guard - International News | News of the World | Middle East News | Europe News - FOXNews.com

    US Consulate car nearly runs over guard



    An American diplomatic vehicle allegedly tried to run over an Israeli security guard at a border checkpoint in Israel last month, setting off a diplomatic scuffle that is straining relations between the two nations, the Jerusalem Post reported.

    In an episode that was reportedly caught on tape, a five-car U.S. convoy was stopped at the Gilboa border crossing in the northern West Bank on Nov. 13 but refused to identify themselves or open any windows or doors for inspection by Israeli security.

    What followed, according to the Post, was recorded in an official report that has kicked up a diplomatic dust storm in Israel.

    Drivers in the American convoy blocked the crossing, the report says, tried running over a Defense Ministry security guard and made indecent gestures at female guards, the Jerusalem Post reported.

    The incident led to a testy meeting five days later, when U.S. and Israeli officials met in Jerusalem to discuss the case and at least one other involving a Palestinian woman who was found in a U.S. diplomatic car without appropriate documentation.

    The U.S. response, the Post norted, further angered Israeli officials: the chief regional security officer reportedly told his Israeli counterparts that "simple guards" had no authority to inspect senior diplomats.

    Maybe they should have arrested them for failure to show ID and transporting illegals.'

    Also American US diplomats making lewd gestures at female guards.

    Where did these US diplomats come from? Gitmo detainees?

    How's that Hope and Change working out for Israel? What other country would tolerate that? Let's see them try that shit in Saudi Arabia. They would be machine gunned right there.

    I think I will withhold judgement until I see an undoctered tape.

    Sure, you may have a few bad apples, but US diplomats are among the best behaved in the world.

    You want a real eye opener? Do some research on what foreign diplomats do in this country.

    Somehow that doesn't excuse the behavior.

    Why do I suspect that any tape that shows something that runs contrary to your pre-conceived notions will be labeled doctored by you?

    This is probably true, but beside the point, right?

    Tapes can be proven to be undoctored or doctored.

    If they can prove its undoctored I will trust it.
