Hamas may have told Israel it isn’t looking for another war in Gaza, but it’s clearly desperate to advance its attack tunnels. It’s also delighted to be sowing seeds of discontent and concern among the Israeli public.04:19 13.02.16 | 0 comments
I work in the arab world and have stamps on a - non-israeli, western european passport - from all sorts of arab countries. I have been held up at the checkpoint just outside Jerusalem, having come from the Allenby bridge, whilst the soldier insisted I needed a visa to enter Israel!!! I regularly get held up at passport control and two things keep me calm - 1) The knowledge that europeans HAVE come from the places I have visited and killed Israelis, so it is not all paranoia and 2) I have friends who used to do the same job in Rafiah and how mind-numbingly dull it is and how everyone jumps on the case that is even the slightest bit interesting. My advice, don't take it personally.
