Israel May revise the emails from tourists

If you plan to travel to Israel, as well as submit your official documents, may have to give permission to the authorities to check your email.

The Attorney general of Israel reported on Wednesday that the Shin Bet, the internal security force, you can do searches in the email of the tourists but only in cases which are observed “important signs of suspicion”. Israel says that this practice is another way to prevent terrorism.

The threat of force to foreigners for terrorist purposes is growing, said the Office of the Attorney-General through a press release written in response to a research presented by an israeli human rights group.

Yigal Palmor, spokesman for the Foreign Ministry, told CNN: “security may require this, but no one is forced to open their accounts to anyone if you don’t want to”.

However, if the traveller refuses to give his consent may be that response taken into consideration, along with other relevant factors, to not allow the entrance to Israel, according to the Attorney general.

The Association for civil rights in Israel received information from the Office of the Attorney General after ask the same if it will request the keys to accounts of email and social networking sites.

The Association said that the question was due to reports of media in the sense that asked travellers palestino-estadounidenses open your emails before were denied entry last year. The Group received its response this week.

“To be clear, this is a process whose execution is conditional on receiving the agreement of the passenger, in addition, does not require to give researchers the key from the email account, as suggested by the letter, but the same passenger enters your account”, according to the Office of the Attorney General.

Lila Magalit, Attorney for the Association for civil rights, said that this practice violates privacy rights.

“A tourist who has spent thousands of dollars to travel to Israel only to be interrogated at the airport by agents of the Shin Bet which you ask for access to your email account is not a position of giving free and informed consent,” said on Wednesday.

“This consent given under threat of deportation not can serve as basis for a so drastic invasion of privacy. In today’s world, a person email account access is equivalent to entering their most intimate thoughts and personal lives. Allow security agents to take such measures invasive to discretion and based on such ‘consent’ is not worthy of a democracy.”

Security patches in the airport Ben Gurin, of Tel Aviv, are known around the world as one of the most comprehensive and thorough.

The owner of a travel agency in Jerusalem, Margo Tarazi, said he heard about this practice but that its customers have not experienced it.

“None of our clients have faced this problem. They come with official groups and no one has asked them those things. However, when we receive any group problems with Iran or Syria, they usually be detained for many hours, and you are asked to sign a paper that ensure that they will not cause any damage to the State of Israel during his visit.”

Critics fear that this practice be used to affect Arab or Muslims who are communicating with Palestinian activists or organitation.
