    Lower brow uniformed thugs than the Israeli border police perhaps are only the armed guardians composed from the IDF dropouts and reserve. Years ago as a student I to applied to this guardian quick job agency run by a several ex-officers - the saddest company of shadows scratching unbuttoned hairy bellies in a smoky room, distracting themselves by patting their pistols. I served one night guarding the TV installations in the middle of the Western Wall Plaza and couldn't gather myself to go and collect my salary and face those poor souls once more. As for the Border Police, one can occasionally see them around Abu Tor and Cinemateque areas in Jerusalem stopping and abusing Arab kids for no other reason than pleasure of abuse. For the real experience I advise catching an Arab 'sherut' circulating from Bethlehem to Damascus Gate, through the improvised BP checkposts. But the scariest and saddest sight of all are the mass gathering of the BP.
