It is cyprus that has laundered russian mafia's money and whose banks have been rescued with euro (currency) money. Britain like Sweden is not a euro country. They are therefore not obliged to rescue bankrupcy ripe banks. Iceland was not a eu-country 6 years ago. Iceland let her banks collapse , which 'ld also have been done in greece, ireland, spain and in cyprus too as the eu-accord clearly provides, but which has not been honored. Iceland is now back on her feet again and she has awsomely recoverd from her bank crisis, which were rescued without foreign billions. Iceland is a nice country, but terribly expensive, which is the only negative; the cute and gutsy icelandic horses are the best in my ex-horse-girl's opinion though! -----When it comes to israeli nationals, the wife of iceland's president is, isn't it self-evident to respect the israeli laws and make sure that you enter Israel with an israeli passport? Nothing to do with icelandic temperament as she is not native icelander.
