Tamari's experience is not unique. In a cyber-age twist on Israel's vaunted history of airport security, the country has begun to force incoming travelers deemed suspicious to open personal email accounts for inspection, visitors say.
All the billions America gives to Israel and this is how they treat an American citizen just because of her family's race. Not only is this a violation of privacy but self incrimination. It is a racist policy and America should not give money to racist states.
racist???....every country in the middle east want the jews dead, they have been in 3 wars, they are still getting rockets fired into their country...but...somehow you just can't understand the fear and paranoia of israel....by the way, go to a map and measure how big the actual country is. it is a sliver of land, surrounded on all sides for thousands of square miles by people that want to murder each and everyone of them...men, women, children, i'm still surprised that they allow ANY muslim into their country.
Strange how they think everyone wants to kill them. So everyone in the world are crazed lunatics? Or just the billion or so Muslims are all crazed lunatics? Picking on the poor, persecuted jews? And for some reason everyone has felt that way for, oh, thousands of years? Kinda strange.
Maybe they think everyone wants to kill them because they want to kill everyone else, and they know if the rest of the world found out their plans that would be it.

Well, as for now, this is only done to People of Palestinian descent. It is of course a form of harassment patently discrimatory . Think for a moment what would happen if anyone of Jewish descent were stopped by security in, say, New York and told to enter their password so their emails could be screened. I'm sure Abe Foxman would soil his panties over that. He would be screaming "anti-Semite" at the top of his lungs.
It's irrelevant whose citizen she is. She is an anti-israeli activist, that had been found to be a grave danger to public security. Hence special procedures were needed, so it can be accurately determined to which extent she might disturb public order.

I'm concerned about the racist policies of Israel and the American support of these racist policies. Learning what El Al stands for does not change my mind that Israel is racist. It is rather an insignificant abbreviation that does not erase or justify the racism. If you think I am somehow at fault for not knowing this then you are wrong, it merely shows your selective criticism of anything you disagree with. Try talking about the topic and avoid personal attacks.
