Ben Gurion Airport in Tel Aviv (above) airport has a carefully cultivated appearance of “normalcy.” However, the one Latino delegation member of our delegation was subjected to a brief “security” questioning.

Delegation member Lamis Deek, a New York City attorney with U.S. citizenship, had to come in by land through Jordan, because, as a Palestinian, she is barred by the Israelis from entering “Israel,” i.e., the territories from which Palestinians were ethnically cleansed since 1948.
