How can you make a statement like "they weren't rude"? You weren't even there to witness it. I'll give you an example, then you tell me what is rude. I arrived at the airport three (3) hours before the flight to ensure enough time for the necessary security measures. They took all of those three hours for their cross-questioning and full body search, and at the last minute insisted that my camera flash could not be x-rayed effectively and would have to be kept behind by them.(They would send it after me by courier, they said). I was running through the airport to try and catch my flight while my name was repeatedly called over the PA system -- barely made it.(They could have communicated to the flight attendants why I was being held back). Two days after arriving at my destination country I received a phone call to come and get my flash at the airport. It was broken, in pieces, having been thrown in an over-sized cardboard box -- not assembled, not packed, not wrapped, just thrown in a box. No apology, no note, no attempt to have it shipped to my address. Nothing. That, in my opinion, is RUDE. There is no other excuse for it. To be cross-questioned and body searched for three hours till I almost missed my flight and then to consider it their right to break my expensive equipment?! I cannot speak for others' experience at the hand of abrasive, rude airport officials, but I had enough and choose never to go there again.<quoted text>
I have been to israel 2 times.
They have a need to do things like that.
When I went fighting happened and we had to go into an underground car park and wait for it to stop.
They were not being rude. Its a dangerous place and they cant risk having dead tourists.
