Conflicting Interests In The Police

Inquiry into embassy police row

I really don't see what the issue is with this. Surely it's obvious that there might be issues placing someone with Lebanese connections on duty at the Israeli embassy would cause issues and that perhaps it would be best if someone else was assigned there for that period instead.

The police are human beings you can't stop that, no matter how much you want them to pretend they're not.

OK, it might not always be possible to arrange things that way and sometimes officers will have duties conflicting with personal interests, but where it's possible to avoid this surely it's got to be in everybody's interest to do so?

AMPO seem quite sure that it was a question of the officer's safety, not of his opinions on the war. The organization suggesting otherwise is the Sun, that well known bastion of truth.

Leaving the facts of the matter aside: clearly if you sign up for diplomatic protection duties you know in advance that you might have to guard the embassy of a country you don't like. If that's something you can't deal with, presumably you don't take that job.
