My wife flew from Geneva to Israel last year to visit her relatives. At Geneva airport, she was subject to two intrusive body searches, two different searches of her luggage plus the endless questioning. She was the last person to board the plane (which looks good with fellow passengers). We never could figure out her crime - a Sri Lankan surname? a transit stop in UAE on the way to Europe (which is pretty routine for Australians)? Whatever. I'm not going, despite her desire to go again and the relatives asking us to visit. I have dark skin so I can imagine it would be far worse. Why put yourself through this and pay for it as well?
