JOYS OF ISRAELI AIRPORT SECURITY
Part of the joys of traveling to and from Israel is the airport security. And when I say “joy” I mean “Dear God, please make me invisible”. While this is seldom a concern for tour group travelers or a reason to fear, traveling alone can be a different story. On all separate occasions, I have been detained in a private room, questioned for 45 minutes upon entering the airport, told they think I have a bomb, and politely escorted through the airport bowels to identify my bag.
