Misunderstanding Democracy and the Police Commandant

Excellent question. Will he resign or be forced to do so?

Police Insp.-Gen. Yohanan Danino

The 'wisdom' of a police officer, the most senior in the force:

It's a mistake to allow right-wing MKs on Temple Mount, Police Chief Danino says

“Anyone who wants to change the status quo on the Temple Mount should not be allowed up there,” Police Insp.-Gen. Yohanan Danino said Tuesday, criticizing Attorney General Yehudah Weinstein for enabling right-wing politicians to incite Arab unrest by visiting the disputed holy site.

...Citing an “extreme right-wing agenda to change the status quo on the Temple Mount,” Danino made his position clear: “We say leave the Temple Mount alone.”

The police chief, whose force has been beleaguered by months of rioting and terrorist attacks, added that declarations by politicians, such as Moshe Feiglin, to change current policy does little more than incite the “Muslim world.”

First, he clashes with another government official.

Second, he misunderstands democracy.

Third, he forgets parliamentary immunity.

Fourth, he points an accusatory finger at the victims of violence hwo only seek what the law guarantees them.

Fifth, he is perceived as letting off the Muslims despite their violence.

Will he resign or be forced to do so?
