Lily Sussman was not an American tourist who while on tour passed through Egypt on her way to viit Israel. Lily has been working in Egypt for several months on aproject to help refugees in Cairo. Not refugess from Sudan or Somalia but refugees from Iraq. People who are fleeing Iraq and in Lily's own words fly in with money and set themselves up to lead aprosperous life. She has many arab friends from countries that are hostile to Israel. No wonder she was stopped at the Egyptian-Israel border, not Ben Gurion Airport. With this many red flags, no wonder whe was subjected to intensive questioning. Any one who wants to take the time can google Lily Sussman and read all the reports that aroused Israeli suspicions.
