Death of a Bad Idea

Let me guess. It seemed like a good idea at the time?

Transportation Minister Shaul Mofaz decided Wednesday to cancel the plans to use controversial Islamic Movement leader Sheikh Raed Salah in the fight against road accidents.

Earlier Wednesday, it was announced that the Road Safety Authority intends to use Salah, who was convicted of working with Hamas and was sentenced to 42 months imprisonment, in its plan to combat car accidents in the Arab sector.

According to the original plan, Salah and religious figures associated with him would preach against reckless driving in their Friday sermons. The Arab sector suffers from a higher rate of road accidents than the Jewish sector.

Officials within the security establishment were outraged at the proposal, calling it “a completely ludicrous idea.”

Rumor has it that instead, the palestinians will use him in the fight against work accidents.
