    This one is a real beaut: "Every day security guards check people entering Ben-Gurion International Airport on whether their accent sounds Arab, and no one complains. That is not racism." Aside from the fact that airport security guards do NOT check your accent, Levy simply doesn't notice the obvious: why are there guards at airports? The answer, of course, is that the Palestinians introduced international air piracy to the world. The guards were originally there to protect the entire public - black and white, Arab and Jew, Sefardi and Ashkenaz - from Palestinian hijackers and those they inspired. If there was the blatant racism and apartheid that Levy and the pro-Pal lobby claim, then Arabs wouldn't even be allowed near the airport. But they are, and they fly, and they get checked for bombs and weapons just like the rest of us.
