    get the endless repeated questions, searches and extra questions, with tagged luggage at Ben Gurion. They also make up luggage contents restrictions on the spot. I don't know what else they do to Arab-Israelis. The whole process provokes resentment, and sours what may have been a personally important experience of visiting as a pilgrim. Last time they were taking me apart and couldn't track down something that was setting off the beeper tracking metal on my person. Having set aside hairgrips, necklace, belt with buckle, keys, watch and of course shoes they were foxed, and asked me if I had any ideas. When I said I could only think of a safety pin, they all straightened up in alarm. "A safety pin?" they chorused. "Yes," said I defensively. "You never use a safety pin to help out a bit of dodgy elastic?" They relaxed, realising I wasn't secreting a grenade or whatever about my blameless person.
