I always thought of diplomatic personnel as on a par with military personnel when it comes to service to their country. Like being in the military, it is a sacrifice, but it is also a privilege to serve. Being in a union is inconceivable to me for persons in such an important job. Obstructing the head of state's visit to a friendly country at a time when the number of Israel's friends is inconceivable to me. Is the employment situation that good in Israel that persons who at least have a guaranteed paycheck and benefits can drop their important responsibilities so cavalierly? I would expect nonsense like this from someplace like Greece or Italy, but not from an embattled nation of presumably smart and patriotic people. Shame on those who are doing this.
