Anyone who has been in Israel and flown from Ben Gurion Airport knows that the questioning and inspection process is very thorough and lacking any and all considerations of political correctness. Knowing that each and every passenger on board the plane with you went though exactly the same process and was cleared is comforting, to say the least. And if, as the subject of this story seems to have felt, one is perturbed by the invasiveness or wants to complain about something that appears illogical they are always welcome to hire a boat and sail to Cyprus. The inspectors don’t give a flying you-know-what about “feelings”.
“Anyone who has been in Israel and flown from Ben Gurion Airport knows ...”
Been there through all that, and it didn’t bother me one bit.
It’s rather comforting to know everything is done for the flight and travellers’ security.
