I commend Haaretz for bringing this up, but I question that they only consider this a worthy news story when it's Jews that are held under suspicion. This type of thing occurs ALL THE TIME!! I am not Jewish, and have been traveling to Israel every few years since I was in my teens. I have been stripped searched and questioned extensively and sometimes quite rudely every time I've gone through Ben Gurion. Funny how in Israel, even with a left-leaning publication like Haaretz, systemic racism and discrimination is not recognized until it happens to Jews.
