If this is true than it is a major blemish on the face of Israel. I had no such personal experience, luckily. It was all routine, passport check, luggage and the purpose of my visit. And I am Muslim on top of that. True, being Caucasian, and having Slavic surname and decidedly non-Muslim name might have prevailed. It sounds awful when I write the possible reasons, but after hearing various stories of people going through hellish ordeal, that is the only reason I can think of why the same didn't happen to me. Many, many Turkish stamps in the passport might have helped. :D Change it Israel. For your and the sake of all those who are friendly towards Jewish state.
