The long drawn mediation efforts carried out since the last labor dispute in June have gone precisely nowhere.

Israeli diplomats have gone on strike. Again.The long drawn mediation efforts carried out since the last labor dispute in June have gone precisely nowhere.  A  spokesman for the Finance Ministry, quoted Monday in the country’s largest daily, Yediot Aharonot, sorrowfully comments that it is unfortunate that the Foreign Service Workers Association has chosen to conduct its campaign at the expense of the country’s citizens and is making cynical use of their distress. Shameful indeed. 

Doctors may go on strike, and do; the largest hospital in Jerusalem went on strike for many days;  time and time again strikes have closed down the country’s airports or grounded airlines. But diplomats? Perish the thought.
