This would seem familiar to those living in Africa

Anyone who has lived or spent time time just about anywhere in Africa will also be familiar with scenes such as this, but I guess we’d always hoped Israel would be different somehow.Maybe we’d feel differently if we believed Olmert was doing as much for the safety and security of Israel’s people as they are doing for his!

As the prime minister’s well-guarded convoy zoomed toward the entrance to Jerusalem last week, it hit and injured a girl who was crossing the street. According to media reports, which have so far not been denied, the convoy crossed the intersection on a red light, while the girl crossed the street on a green light. When procedures intended to protect the life of the prime minister begin to endanger the lives of citizens, clearly, something needs to change.
