How I broke down under interrogation

I have tried for years to avoid traveling via the Tel Aviv airport, usually I try to leave out of Amman. But today I had to be in Palestine till Wednesday night and the only way to attend the conference I was invited to speak at was to leave from Ben Gurion Airport. I left Jerusalem in plenty of time, I thought, and sure enough at the very entrance of the airport the taxi I was riding in was stopped and we had to wait some 20 minutes until they thoroughly checked the car.

Next was the security check in. I tried to explain to the low level security woman checking my passport that I am a professional journalist.
