I'm With Diab
Does the Shin Bet need to take security precautions for the prime minister at media functions, like last yesterday's press conference?
Was the prime minister's message -- primarily about the need for tougher international sanctions against Iran -- important?
But let's get real.
With all due respect to the Prime Minister's office, I wouldn't let anybody's security detail "touch my junk" for the privilege of covering a press conference.
Longtime readers know I have plenty of gripes with Al-Jazeera and the Foreign Press Association.
Not today, however.
Najwan Simri Diab, an Israeli citizen and a veteran journalist with Government Press Office credentials opted to walk away rather than remove her bra for a female security guard. Good for her.
I'm with Diab.

Let's get real: after that journalists, or their impersonators, committed terror attacks, thorough check before a meeting with a high government person should be (I'm sure, already is) a routine. If anyone is insulted by that, (s)he must change the profession.
