Angry journalists, who initially boycotted the session, describe subcommittee's claims to be part of a 'witch hunt,' and slam Israel's 'authoritarian' efforts to clamp down on the media.14:27 09.02.16 | 2 comments
Well, I am a Christian Arab, my family is from Lebanon and I was born in the US. I come to Israel for tourist purposes- i have Jewish friends that I know here, and I have an excellent experience here always- except for the airport. I get the special treatment, an escort as if I am a criminal- after they have already checked me to the gate. I used to get the red tags- now i get a white sticker with the number 6 on it. And a 6 on all my bags. I don't understand what the big deal is, if you search everyone, and then do a thorough search, why walk me to the gate like I am a criminal? It makes me feel like I have done something wrong, like a criminal being escorted out. I will write a letter every time it happens, but of course- nothing will change.
