Quite apart from what we can deduce about Israeli border guards, we can learn quite a lot about talkbackers here. 1) There is nothing - however unjustified, offensive, humiliating, and demeaning - which an Israeli can do to an Arab or a suspected Arab sympthasiser which will not find a talkbacker to defend it. 2) Most of the pro-Israeli talkbackers are magnificently pig-headed. In their efforts to demonstrate (1) above, they fail completely to realise that there is no conceivable security reason for putting a bullet through a computer. If you think it has dangerous data, you take the data off an analyse it; if you think it has a bomb, you take it away and defuse it. As for the border guards, if we they have as much intelligence as a cabbage, they know this fine. So we have to look for other motives: intimidation?
