If you don’t like it, then don’t travel to or through Israel.

Period.

.

While standing in long lines, walking through scanners and removing belts and shoes are a fact of post-Sept. 11 travel worldwide, Israel’s Ben-Gurion Airport seems to stand alone in the developed world with its security techniques, often leaving travelers dumbfounded.  Though Israel denies profiling travelers, business executives, journalists and especially Arabs and visitors to Palestinian areas seem prone to being targeted with aggressive questioning, long luggage examinations and even strip searches.

The tough security is not new, but it is stirring debate.  On one side stand those concerned about Israel’s good name, tourism potential and moral standing.  On the other are those for whom security arguments can seem close to sacrosanct in a country hit with decades of attacks by Palestinian militants, a series of hijackings in the 1960s and `70s, and whose travelers abroad are targeted in terrorist attacks.

The issue recently burst onto the national agenda after an Arab schoolteacher who teaches at a Jewish high school was strip-searched at Israel’s airport in the southern resort town of Eilat during a class trip with her students.  Israeli Arab citizens, including lawmakers and other community leaders, complain of frequent discrimination when traveling.

The first time you see a station wagon filled with wheelchair-bound midget Caucasian nuns wearing ‘Brony’ t-shirts while listening to ‘death metal’ and screaming It’s Bush’s Fault !, let me know and we’ll begin not profiling them as well.

Memo to those who wish to hasten the destruction of Israel and genocide of the Jewish people:  Go f*ck yourselves.  ΜΟΛΩΝ ΛΑΒΕ.

If law-abiding firearms owners were as unstable and dangerous as typically bitter and clinging Democrats say we are, there’d be no typically bitter and clinging Democrats still breathing.

    I think people will just have to accept that there is gong to be increased profiling and surveillance in these Terrorist plagued days.

    There can be no exceptions made for any particular group or of any background, simply because Terrorists don’t play by the book.

  2. Israel has always been known, and respected for their methods of screening air line travelers. They ask questions and possibly send you to a detention room.

    I’d rather have that, than having myself felt up, or having a machine take a x-ray of my entire body that’s the property of their government and may be all over the internet.

  3. We went to Israel in 1997 and were told to arrive at the airport 3 hours early. And we needed every minute and didn’t complain.

    Maybe that Malaysian airliner would still be around if they had followed Israel’s protocol.

Have at it....... But please be respectful and no f'n cussin' neither, ya heah ?...... Also please back up all claims of fact in your comments with links (yes, they will be verified before comment posting approved).
