Being a blond woman, not having the average Israeli look, at BG airport I am often pushed aside with the other tourists by security personnell who let the Israelis go in first at check-in counters. It is not until I open my (Hebrew) mouth, giving them a mouthfull actually, till they realize I am "one of them". The things they said about me and other tourists was so offensive. I was boiling mad. I should have filed an official complaint, but would it have changed anything?? I am going to travel again very soon, and if treated rudely again, I sure will file a complaint. If only these tourists would understand a few words or Hebrew, they would (especially the Americans) have taken action. I am ashamed of my fellow Israelis, deeply ashamed.
