    • Another professor
    • 16.06.10 | 10:06 (IDT)

    I have passed through this at Ben-Gurion just few days ago. By coincidence I am a university professor too and I presented my docs. I passed it quietly accepting with understanding the lengthy security check, but the question of acceptance is subjective, not purely to understanding, but also to the fact, as the report said, that we have no choice. The flight security is my security too, however; the balance point between security needs, logic and humiliation seems to be lost some where at that place and is some times subjectives to personal judgments. With my case this departure check was not the end, at arrival back home I was accompanied aside as an Arab from Jerusalem into a closed room where I passed through all of this again, personally and my luggage. I recall a report in Haaretz about 2 years ago with another professor who was requested to leave his lap top to follow him in a different plane where it later arrived to him in London when about to return back, actually I arrived for departure at Ben-Gurion with worries about a similar experience. It seems from all of that that someone in there is somehow careless about all complaints and probably considers such stories as an indication of his success.
