    In 2007 I came back 'home' to Israel from a trip to Frankfurt. I was at that time an oleh chaddash, travelling with a Dutch passport. when I asked the custom officer why her line was moving so slow she called the airport police. They detained me for 4 hours and seem to enjoy the game to make me upset. After four hours I was so desperate ( I wasn't allowed to call any one ) that I took my passport from their desk in order to go home. I didn't do nothing after all. I ended up with pepper spray in my face and needed a docter. Then they investigated the matter and said : 'ohhh, you are an oleh chaddash' It was a shocking and traumatic experience for me. The pepper spray litterely closed my eyes, but after this incident it opened my eyes. I made a complaint to the magash, which they didn't take serious. I should have taken a lawyer I have been told. I still regret I didn't.
