I know how things are complicated when it comes to security in Israel. There are thousands of stories on how much exaggeration on the procedures done by the security there. what ever was the police were thinking about the lady, her background, stamps, etc I do not see any reason to shoot the laptop. They could just test it, scan it or do anything to find out if there was a bomb or anything else, shooting at a laptop is shameful. What is strange for me is the responses and comments by most of the people in Israel where they agree to, justify and give excuses for the act by the border police. They even hope that the lady learnt a lesson!!!!!!!!! It is clear now the Israeli community is turning to be military one believing in violence as first option!!!!! You are in bad luck lily, if you go to court in your country you and the people who sympathies with you will be classified as anti-Semitic!!!!!!!!
