British police probe Muslim officer’s refusal of Israeli guard duty

I never knew that Police officers can choose and pick their Duty Stations. This is just rubbish. His first duty is to follow law and abide by UK constitution, protect UK citizen and any one who is lawfully staying in this country without any favour.

LONDON (AFP) – Britain’s top police official has ordered an urgent inquiry into a decision to excuse a Muslim officer from guard duty at the Israeli embassy during Israel’s recent offensive on Lebanon, police said.

“An urgent review into the decision not to post an officer at the Israeli embassy” was ordered by Sir Ian Blair, head of the capital’s Metropolitan Police, a police spokesman told AFP on Thursday.

The Sun newspaper said the probe targetted policeman Alexander Omar Basha, saying he had asked for a special dispensation because of moral objection to Israel’s bombing campaign on Lebanon, in July and August
