Average white British male. My 5x entries into Israel have all been relatively quick. My 5x exits however range between (the shortest) 2hrs and (the longest) 4.5hrs. It's included the 'cloth on a stick' twice. My Jewish co-travellers, on the other hand, are waved through with nothing more than a half-hearted smile. It doesn't bother me any more - I know what to expect and the feeble attempts at humiliation no longer work. I just feel sorry for Israel's international standing a little more each time I pass through.
