The article is missleading. At Ben Gurion Airport, the check everything since ages! I was never part of any "pro palestinian group" and I never go to Palestinian territories, except the road from the dead sea to Tiberias or East-Jerusalem but I get checked totally every time leaving Israel. Even if I was only in Tel Aviv and Naharija! Since the 80th I know that I need about three or four hours at the airport and that I will face rude people that will even check the coins in my wallet. You should allways wear fresh underwear before you leave Israel, because you have to undress at the airport. Personally I think this is a special service: after spending a great time in Israel and with my friends, the "security" at the airport tries make it easier for me to leave....
