there ought to be a law...not

There really should be a law requiring all of us to insult the dignity of a public official on a regular basis. Anyway, lucky for a protestor against the ill-fated Gaza Disengagement has been acquitted for insulting the ‘dignity of a public official’. Ynet News:
The Jerusalem Magistrate's Court has decided to acquit a settler who gave police officers the Nazi salute while chanting "Heil Sharon" during the disengagement from the Gaza Strip in 2005, Yedioth Ahronoth reported Friday. The accused, Hebron resident Oren Zar, was charged with giving the Nazi salute to two police officers. He was brought to court on charges of insulting a public official.
I maybe wrong, but I believe the Sharon government dusted this law off from the Brits when they ruled the Palestine Mandate. Time to scrap it off the books entirely.
