Guards at the Knesset made sure that no one wearing anything with the color orange in it was allowed onto the Knesset grounds for Sharon’s lying in state.
Orange was the color of the protest against Sharon’s Disengagement plan from Gush Katif.
Guards checked visitors carefully for orange bracelets, shirts, banners, and other orange colored clothing or paraphernalia.
One person, inadvertently wearing an orange shirt unrelated to the Gush Katif protest, was turned away from the Knesset grounds and not allowed to pay his respects to the former Prime Minister.Jewish Press News Briefs
