This is no surprise; Israeli borders are a nightmare for anyone traveling in the region. Me and a friend traveled from Turkey to Egypt earlier this year and we had no problems at any Arab borders, no questions, just "Welcome!". We waited *6 hours* at the King Hussein/Allenby crossing into Israel, with the border guards (most of them under 20) asking the same questions about 50 times. The best question: "What's a surname?" They honestly had no idea what they were doing.
