    1. @ Q: Sorry but women don’t “get over it” when a complete stranger forces them not only to disrobe but touches them as well. That’s sexual abuse. Not security. Not to mention that Palestinian women have posted that male Shin Bet agents were in the room during the strip search. So no, ppl don’t get over it with a drink or without one.

  1. Israel is Gaslighting themselves and the world into believing that they are special, and that they deserve special treatment.

    Google the word Gaslighting and Israel or Jew or Christian or Muslim or Religion, etcetera, and read all about.

    Israel is going to get away with what they can for as long as they can, until they destroy themselves, then they will blame the world for their troubles, and do it all over again somewhere else.

    They are Chosen, and they believe it.

    1. @ Steve Benassi: Even though you’re using the term “Chosen” targeting Israelis, I’m uncomfortable because this term is exploited as a major attack against Jews by anti-Semites, neo-Nazis, etc. Not to mention that their misunderstanding of the term as understood by Jews is a complete distortion. Being a “chosen” people does not denigrate non-Jews in any way. It’s just saying that Jews have a special role to play in the world. And much of Jewish history has proven that we have huge contributions to make to it. We are not better than anyone. At least that’s the way I as a Jew see it. There may be ultra Orthodox Jews who believe differently. BUt they are a decided minority in the overall global Jewish community.

      1. And that’s the Rub, no one can say anything about Israel or Jews, unless they Genuflect while they are saying it. We are all anti-semites now, until proven otherwise.

        Israel can destroy the world if we don’t stop them, and if by saying so makes me an anti-semite in some people’s eyes, so be it, I know I am not.

        1. @Steve:

          no one can say anything about Israel or Jews

          Please do not confliate Jews and Israel. Not only are they different, it is a mistake to claim something applicable to one is applicable to the other. I am fine with you using the term “Chosen” regarding Israel, because those who govern the country, namely the settlers and their political allies, do believe that they are the Chosen. But no Diaspora Jews believe they are “Chosen,” as I said in my comment. Those that do are largely ultra-Orthodox. As I said, a distinct minority in the Diaspora.

  2. I don’t think Noor was strip-searched, must less sexually abused. She would have said as much. She was very talkative and descriptive during her troubles at the airport. I hasten to note that Noor doesn’t say a male was present when she was patted down.
    BTW, her clothes were borrowed in order to be chemically tested for explosives.

    Why did you link David Lange? You don’t like him.

    1. @john She did say it. Read her whole thread before you make false claims. And strip searches of women are demeaning and constitute sexual abuse.

      Nor did I say a male was present during her stripe search. I said there are other incidents with other Palestinian women where a male shin bet agent was present.

      As for an explosives test, there was no reason to test her clothes. They knew she was no security threat. Not to mention that they told her they detected explosives, which was an outright lie.

      You’re defending the indefensible.

  3. I read everything very carefully, and here is the extent of Noor’s alleged demeaning strip search and your claim of sexual abuse.

    Noor said: “I was taken into a room for extensive screening. This was run by the Israelis. Took off half my clothes, socks, shoes. Was THOROUGHLY patted down. Head to toe. They swabbed my clothes, my bag, shoes, socks, literally everything. ”

    Every year hundreds, if not thousands of flyers are routinely, temporarily detained for security reasons on flights arriving to and departing from Israel. Noor is not exceptional.

    1. @ John: Forcing a woman to disrobe is what I would consider a strip search. It would have exposed parts of her body to a stranger. Forcing someone to disrobe agaainst their will is physical, emotional and sexual abuse. It was demeaning and deliberately so. The Shin Bet knew this woman was not a security threat. Yet they put her through a degrading process on purpose because that’s just what they do.

      If ‘thousands of flyers’ are subject to needless degradation of this sort, that means that Noor and all of them are deliberately abused. Which reflects the horror show that Israel is for its Palestinian citizens and those under illegal occupation, not to mention the US citzens it treats the same way. The fact that “Noor is not exceptional” is not something to be proud of. Nor does it mitigate the awfulness of this treatment. If you have no problem with US citizens being treated by a foreign security service as terrorists, well, I do. And most other Americans would as well.

  4. According to 8 U.S. Code § 1182 – Inadmissible aliens (a)(3)(E)(ii) (Participation in genocide), no Zionist colonial settler is admissible to the USA. There is no administrative discretion in this admissibility because genocide according to this statute is defined in 18 U.S. Code § 1091, which is interpreted by a US federal court and not by an administrative agency.

    [The above link should go directly to the critical part of the statute’s text. Unfortunately, formatting is not preserved below.]

    ordered, incited, assisted, or otherwise participated in the persecution of any person because of race, religion, national origin, or political opinion is inadmissible.
