She said on her blog that she left the laptop UNATTENDED while she sat outside and enjoy the view. Of course it was destroyed as are ALL unattended items! She also had anti-Israel photos and literature and was coming overland from Egypt. She very well could have a bomb, or one could have been planted on her by a "friend". It's happened before. I have absolutely no sympathy. She's getting a new laptop and they even let her enter the country. She has nothing to complain about, she brought this upon herself.
