An American citizen visiting family in Tel Aviv spent much of the day looking at the Red Sea and waiting for officials to complete what should have been a pretty normal security check process.
But Lily Sussman, the citizen in question, is seeing red after border police at the airport inexplicably attacked her Unibody Macbook (the latest model of the popular Apple laptop), shooting three holes through the screen.
Officials with the Israeli Airport Authority were quick to defend the attack, which has become something of a media storm in Israel, insisting that the police sapper who was called upon to slay the popular consumer device was “following procedure.”
As for Ms. Sussman, she’s relieved that the three shots pierced the screen but left her hard drive intact, but she’s also perplexed. Officials didn’t ask for her password to access data on the laptop and gave no indication as to why the sappers were called in to dispatch the Macbook.

Bronze age thugs, ruining the good name of obnoxious israelites
Mystery solved: it was reported the glossy laptop screen somehow contained a thin but actual living crazy-eyed militant armed nut-case staring at you! It's not sure how the enemy could have squeezed an actual person inside the flat screen – mirrors might have been used – but possible Iranian involvement in supplying some kind of inter-dimensional gateway is not entirely discounted
Isn't it more likely that Jobs is just leeching off Holocaust slave labour through his time portal?
Btw, these holes don't just go through the screen, they go through the whole device.
The owner should sue for Reparations.
I wish Ms. Sussman luck getting her money back, especially given that a good percentage of Israel's Holocaust survivors live below the poverty line despite European countries paying Israel reparations through the nose.
A lot of young Israelis go to India after IDF service and hit the bong/ LSD hard: sounds like this paranoid lot started their trips a wee bit early.
Violent, paranoiac………. aberrant behavior……no accountability…..?????? This is the state with a vast

IDF should make a beginner course in how to "Shutdown" a Laptop. Lol these people live behind the moon
Good call, it started with apple, right……..
Of course if this had happened to an American citizen in Iran it would be an excuse for an international incident, but since it's Israel it's "nothing to see here."
I see that all the posters here have taking the time to be upset about the horrible crime just done by Israel.
Maybe she was reading Antiwar.com?
just imagine if it were an IBM…
