What goes around comes around


SUVA, Fiji (Fijilive, Aug. 9) - Israel’s Foreign Ministry is looking into a complaint that three Israelis were evicted from Fiji recently after an immigration officer told them that they had humiliated Palestinians during their military service.(Aint that the truth?)

A report on ynetnews.com says Amit Ronen, Eldar Avracohen and Nimrod Lahav had left Israel in February for a tour(?) in Australia.(I would let someone named Nimrod in)

Last month they decided to spend a week in Fiji and arrived in the country on July 13.

Avracohen wrote in a complaint letter to Israel’s Ambassador to Australia Nati Tamir that the immigration officer demanded ID cards after seeing their passports.(So?)

"We gave our passports to the officer, and when she saw we are Israelis she asked for ID cards. We told her we don’t understand why we need ID cards and she responded shouting: "You know very well how to ask Palestinians for IDs and humiliate them for three years."(Preach on sister! A little checkpoint justice in action)

The three said they were held at Nadi International Airport for six hours and officials rebuked their pleas to be allowed to make a phone call.(whine whine whine)

They spent the night at a cell in the airport before being sent back to Australia.(free room and board, cant beat that)

"I don’t look like a terrorist and there is no reason to point a gun at me," Lahav wrote in a letter to Ambassador Tamir.(Not as much fun when you're helpless and not pointing the gun at kids in the occupied territories eh schlomo?)

Avracohen wrote that the incident was the most humiliating experience he had ever gone through.(My heart bleeds for you buddy, boo freakin' hoo. You just walked for a few hours in the shoes of a Palestinian, now you know what they feel like everyday)

Israel’s Foreign Ministry said the matter was being dealt with.(My letter of appreciation to the Fiji embassy is on its way)

That's hilarious! I guess it's true what they say:

"What goes around comes around."

hmm it would have been best if they would have played tapes of planes bombing and bomb explosions for them at night, that would have really hit the spot.

Ahhhh, Shucks.

Don't get your knickers all excitable, Swordswoman.

Fiji was lookin' for just some way to become a world player - any excuse to get their oar in the water.

They just happened on three Israelis; could just as easily have been three Iranians. Or the three stooges.

I don't think that is a decent form of expression first of all...its rather crass and childish...

And in this day and age....it is SOMETHING better than nothing...it wasn't 3 Iranians nor 3 stooges was it?

Why must you denigrate efforts that some decent people make? Whilst the Arabs of Egypt, Jordan and may be Syria PROTECT the border with Israel; I am glad Fiji stood up for the TRUTH and gave them a taste of their own medicine...
