How was Francis treated by police &Shin Bet at the airport,not being"Jewish"?Israel has a distinct screening process for non-Jews&non-whites,aka racial/ethnic profiling!
Did they take him to a"Catholic Room"for interrogation,like they take all Palestinians to an'Arab Room'on arrival/departure from 'democratic'Israel?Did airport security slap a sticker on his Vatican passport saying,'Did you pack a bomb by mistake?as routinely done to Palestinians? No joke!Occupying Israel really does do that!

It all comes down to security. In this instance, Palestinians have themselves - and only themselves - to blame for the restrictions. Using religious sites for often violent political protests has consequences.
