Het Obama effect?

Wangedrag door Amerikaanse diplomaten bij een checkpoint.
De Jerusalem Post heeft documenten in handen waaruit blijkt dat Amerikaanse diplomaten van het consulaat in Jerusalem zich niet echt diplomatiek gedragen;
According to a detailed official Israel Police description of the incident obtained exclusively by The Jerusalem Post, the drivers refused to identify themselves or open a window or door. The drivers, according to the report, purposely blocked the crossing, tried running over one of the Israeli security guards stationed there and made indecent gestures at female guards. The entire incident was documented by cameras at the crossing. Ben-Yishai also said the drivers of the cars, from east Jerusalem, hid their Israeli identity cards and put stickers over their names on their consulate-issued identity cards, since, as they claimed, "they are in a diplomatic vehicle and cannot be touched."
De Amerikanen zouden een betere screening moeten instellen voor het personeel dat zij inhuren. Voorkomt veel problemen.
