    Any non-Israeli or non-jewish traveller to Israel gets special attention at the airport - which can be humiliating depending on how it is done. I know plenty of tourists who curse this and will never visit again and it greatly affects their impression of Israel unfortunately. Of course security screening is necessary but hey Israelis, a little politeness can go a long way to compensate for this treatment! I once met a polite El Al security guy - it made all the difference!
