UK Diplomats travel just to harass Jews in Hebron

The Jerusalem Post reports:
According to the British Consulate, a delegation of British diplomats was harassed by settlers while visiting Hebron on Thursday, Reuters reported. The diplomats were in an armored car at the time, and no one were injured in the incident. Reuters also quoted a Palestinian security official from Hebron as saying he saw one of the settlers kicking the car door after trying to open it. The report added that the British consulate had said police had broken up the scuffle, and were investigating the incident. There was no immediate comment from the Israeli authorities.

What I can’t understand is - if Settlers are persons non grata at the British Consulate just why are UK diplomats forcing themselves on Israeli settlers in Hebron? Talk about chutzpah.
