being jewish does not. Let’s not confuse a political situation(i.e. no diplomatic relations) with discrimination towards jews. a few of my friends visited algeria and never had issues with authorities or anyone while on our soil. if this guy was really suspected of criminal activities, it was legit for Israel to refuse entry. But if it was just bigotry like it appears to be, it is outrageous indeed. To counterbalance, it is already a reality that you have people refused in some arab countries for instance for having travelled to Israel and have the stamp on their passport. It is because of the political situation. This man has been wronged & israel needs to sort out this cock up internally. If they ever start banning people on religious grounds as you suggest, then you are right, the principle of reciprocity could apply but not by banning jews but by refusing entry to israelis as such idiocy would come from a political entity and not jews as an ensemble or religious entity. It is best to keep matters separated to avoid injustice. But truthfully speaking, there is no business in escalating stupidity, a pure disgrace, it is always preferable to ignore morons rather than playing such disgraceful games...
