This is scary !!! According the Jerusalem Post one of its reporters were able to climb into a fully stocked IDF Armored vehicle left in the middle of a deserted field near the Gaza border.

CNN reported that senior US officials said Thursday that the State Department has complained to the Israeli government about its ‘discriminatory treatment of Arab-Americans traveling to the Palestinian territories.’ CNN quoted the officials as saying that despite a longstanding policy of issuing visas to Americans traveling to the West Bank and Gaza,

the Israeli government has recently denied Palestinian-Americans and certain other Americans entry. According to the report, the officials said that during her recent trip to Israel, US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice raised the issue with Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni, adding that US diplomats have also recently complained to the Israeli Embassy in Washington.

“They are being treated as Arabs and not Americans,” one senior official was quoted by CNN as saying. “They basically treat them as second-class citizens.”

I don’t know what they are complaining about…They won’t let Jews up to the Temple Mount to pray.
