it is not an 'infringement' ….and it is certainly not a 'right' for people to enter a country w/o consent from that country. when 'known' persons, who have vowed to do harm, try to enter the country they intend to harm, they are turned away…..and with good reason.
entering another country is not a 'right'….it is a 'priviege'……when ones actions go against that country….they looose that privilege.

understand?

Understand but not like you, understand?

Apparently she did not carry any weapon
and there was no immediate threat. It is
shameful in the current century to ask
someone to log into one's personal e-mail
account on gun-point !!! What if the security
of airport orders your wife to undress in
front of you as a probable terrorist suspect??
Understand ???

Ultimately, they deported her; that is fine with
the law of the land. But opening e-mail account
on gunpoint??? is not it encroaching into one's
personal space?
Understand ???

It is reminiscent of how terrorists like Irgun and
Levy, Gurion etc. displaced the owners from their
hilltop houses !!

"I bet the US slaves will not bark

Are you referring to the black slaves who built your country, and you are now enjoying the fruits of their miserable life??

The following trapezoid comment is dedicated to the memory of my friend 50Yard :

Its a gaffe to think about me like this !!
There was no slave business in our land.
We earned means ourselves, may be little;
Time and again, the pirates and thugs invaded
us and we resisted. Our country is not based on
any mythological promise and is not an annexed one,
by virtue of illegal settlements. We never displaced any
indigenous population or imported 'indigenous' population !!

People who have not travelled much, or at all, will of course find going through an International customs security procedure frustrating. They haven't been to any ME countries obviously. Do you seriously think that Israel will not protect it's citizens because a few trouble-makers want to bring attention to themselves? Why didn't they go through Jordan if they hate Israel so much?

I have never been to the ME so I can't comment. I have been through US immigration numerous times and I have never met a more surly unhelpful bunch of public servants. I think Miami takes the biscuit, but O'Hare runs it close.

Maybe they don't, as this was the third visit and apparently they got up to no trouble on the first two trips.

I've never had a border guard ask to read my e-mail.

I am an american citizen born in Israel.I have been denied access to Cairo airport on a simple flight change from Kenya to London stopping in Cairo. I am also hesitant to travel to any moslem country and when I did it was always with trepidation and suspicious looks from immigration folks at those airports. Israel should allow any of these activists from entering their country.Let them activate in the US or in their bedrooms

How is "pro-Palestinian activism" defined? I could understand if the people are suspected of engaging in hostilities towards Israel, but just activism certainly does not warrant being removed from the country.

Palestinians are engaged in an illegal war of terrorism against Israelis in general, and civilians in particular.
Aiding the enemy, especially one that targets toddlers and grandmothers, in any way, is more than enough reason to block entry.

Many of these "activists" have no idea of what they really *support* and are used as tools by the arabs to show that killing Israeli children is valid.

All the pro-Israeli crowd must be afraid of their shadows. Sheesh! Israel nukes and now nuclear tipped subs, fourth largest army in the world and YET it fears its shadow. Wow! Keep on posting the usual hasbara points: 1. Wiping Israel off the map (debunked) 2. All Palestinians are terrorists. 3. All aid activists are terrorists sympathizers. 4. Israel is fighting for survival. NO Israel is fighting to control the region with US help. 5. Israel is always the victim and never starts any wars. The Muslims hate us.

Hey Sam, nukes did not help the US when 19 terrorists killed more than 3,000 Americans on 9/11. Nukes and large armies don't help when women belt explosives around their hips as if they are pregnant and explode themselves as they cross the border into Israel. Eventually you choose to ignore the Hamas declaration or Hizbullah intentions or the actions of the thousands of Palestinian terrorists who either die while exploding themselves on Israeli buses or were stopped in time and are sitting in jail. And yes, unfortunately, most Muslims hate Israel.

Sure Solomon. I see you believe the 9/11 fable. You have to ask why they put explosives to themselves? Could be oppressive IDF actions, stealing ones home, killing ones relatives and generally making their lives unbearable for the last 63 years. Hizbullah was created in defence of Israeli aggression into Lebanon. Hamas is not different than the IRA yet Israel cant talk to Hamas like the Brits talked to the IRA.
Israel brings hatred upon itself bombing soveriegn nations nuclear reactors threatening others with sanctions; Iraq and Iran.

Israel passport authority is aware of troubles travelers face with their passport stamped in Israel and they do offer the choice of not stamping one's passport upon their leaving the country.

Because here in the states profiling is not PC, we require an 87-yr.-old women in a wheelchair to doff their shoes in order to screen them properly. We are far removed from the Middle East. Israel is in midst of Middle East turmoil, with the Palis. and the Iranians committed to its destruction. It has no time with the niceties of PC. If they spot a suspected troublemaker out he/she goes. Despite being in the Mideast it is a vibrant democracy. That is why the Arabs can inflict so much damage. Consider that powerhouse of Arab nationalism--Syria. In Syria they never met an Arab they didn't like provided he was dead. The outrage coming from the Arabs gives you ear-strain if you try to hear it.

It has nothing to do with PC, profiling is not only against the law (discrimination), but also useless. BTW there has not been a hijacking originating in a US airport since 9/11 but there was a hijacking from an Israeli airport in 2002 (stopped in the plane not by airport security measures).

You are laboring under a self-deception if you think for a moment it is not PC, and let the public be damned. It is not discrimination. It is a practical expedient endorsed in many quarters. If a terrorist managed to evade security at the airport that's a strong signal they have to do something more to beef up their security at the terminal.

All the usual suspects are coming out from under their rocks whenever a HP story about Israel is popping up. The massacres in Syria do not bother them at all; human rights violations in Turkey do not bother them at all; ditto in Egypt. But when Israel defend herself from "vacationing" visitors who really come to stir troubles, this is a whole different issue.

As if you care what happens in other countries especially when they are not looking at Israel. I rarely see the 'usual suspects' on their either. There1240 comments regarding the huma massacre is that not enough for you. This is not a popularity contest.

Would you expect me to fly to Syria as an activist? Or to Egypt? Remember what happened to Laura Logan, the CBS reporter who reported from Tahrir Square last year? You have no idea what you are talking about.

I'm not sure how useful or warranted this tactic is. I have to say, though, I find it rather amusing that so many people here who either say nothing about or outright support the PA (who jail their OWN people for criticizing them) and Hamas (who execute their political opponents) cry "fascism" and "the end of democracy" when Israel keeps out foreign agitators.

But of course, they say that about Israel no matter what the topic, so what's new?
