    Israel's security is not a joke. What was his objective in not answering the questions? All of us entering Israel at Ben Gurion Airport are questioned one way or another. Once, I only travelled with my Canadian passport and not including my Israeli passport - well, did I get a scolding from the lady at the desk at customs and then had to go to the Interior Ministry to get paperwork done (all on vacation time btw). Did you ever read in the book of the famous Canadian Jewish writer, Mordechai Richler, " Next Year in Jerusalem" upon arrival at Ben Gurion Airport, his misplaced, beloved Corona typewriter was purposely exploded for security reasons. He wasn't upset as much as Padro or the Spanish Foreign Ministry. Security is not a joke nowadays. Sorry Gideon.
