    well, i am jewish, pay my tax, speak hebrew, travel with west-european passport and get the same special treatment all the time coming into israel. the other day in zurich, they took all my things from me and i could sit 2hrs without any money, any snacks, any phone and wait until boarding. And why did this happen... BECAUSE i am tall and blond. i am not even starting with the bad inflight service, the arrogant cabin crew and the bad food - i am so done with elal and really hope that more people will follow this boycott. in terms of those brothers - i am out of words. i feel so sorry for them. probably also, because i know how it feels being embarrassed in front of an entire plane. i hope that keren person gets the worst tooth pain without having a dentist around. And a migraine attack at least once a week!
