Police criticize Knesset decision to probe Amona

Police criticized on Wednesday the decision reached by the Knesset to set up an investigative committee over events at Amona, saying that it sent out a message that violence against the police force was permitted. "The feeling among police officers is that the government is neglecting them for political reasons and that national security is being put at risk," said a police source. The official police reaction was that it would accept any decision reached by the committee.
