    Arabs visiting Israel are treated MUCH BETTER than Israelis visiting Arabia - firstly because Israelis (and Jews) are forbidden from visiting most of Arabia. Even when allowed into Jordan or Egypt, Jews who have a "Jewish appearance" or who have any Jewish-style clothing or parapharnalia are barred. (The official Arab excuse is that this is to "protect" Jewish visitors.) There is no comparison between Israel's security checks and bigotted official Arab policies and practices. HaAretz always sees things backwards. How do you still manage this?
