From Ynet, the comically predictable story of Lebanese-American and Miami University President, Donna Shalala’s, departure from Ben Gurion Airport :
When Shalala arrived at the airport, she was not recognized as a VIP and was even afforded what she claims to be “special” treatment because of her Arab last name. She claims she was held for two-and-a-half hours during which she was asked invasive and humiliating personal questions. Despite the delay, she managed to board the flight to the US. Officials who spoke with her said she was deeply offended by the treatment she received.
Shalala, the former Secretary of Health under the more-pro-Israel-than-Israel Clinton administration, had been part of an anti-divestment junket. As someone who spent 2 days in interrogation and detention at Ben Gurion, enduring as much loathing and disrespect as my captors could project, the irony is a bit bland for my tastes. But still, good enough.
