As a jew and a supporter of Israel, I am baffled with such a degree of stupidity. Instead of creating links with this kind of cooperation, that can help build trust, this checkpoint rebuff is like spitting in the face to people who put their life at stake to help morons who have not a decent security policy. Maybe that's a proudness complex...acting like that is childish. I guess next time the palestinians will not come with their better equipment and training. Guys straighten your pants and put energy where it's necessary, not humiliating firemen.
