American CHUTZPAH!

The State of Israel is an independent country. It has a police and army, the IDF. It has courts and a government. No Israeli Government official gave the United States permission to "inspect" Adei Ad, the Jewish farming community to the east of Shiloh.
"...U.S. diplomatic delegation which came to inspect..."(Reuters) - Jewish settlers threw stones at the cars of a U.S. diplomatic delegation which came to inspect vandalism to nearby Palestinian-owned trees in the occupied West Bank on Friday, Israeli police said....
the delegation arrived at Adei Ad in U.S. diplomatic carswithout first having coordinated the visit with Israeli authorities. (emphasis mine)
Not only did the Americans have the nerve to "inspect" what is going on here, disregarding our government, but they came with armed guards who brandished their weapons at the worried Adei Ad residents. They are lucky they weren't shot! Arabs and international anti-Israel anarchists have attacked Adei Ad in the past.

I have no doubt that if an Israeli consular delegation went armed, like the Americans, on an inspection tour in the Untied States the Israeli Ambassador would be sent home packing, and the American one would leave Israel and there would be so many complaints about Israeli "chutzpah."

I hope that instead of our usual wimpy apologies this time our Israeli Government demands that the Americans apologize to us!! Send the American officials home!!!
