Had a right old time of it with Mossad once as we crossed from Egypt into Israel via the (then recently opened and very soon to be closed again) land crossing at Taba in the Sinai.
Two couples travelling together. They lived in Cairo but were originally from NI. Us from NI and all of us having in the recent past been in the US and Cypress a few times. The Mossad lads assumed we were IRA which finally dawned on me and allowed us to get it cleared up. I'd thought the questioning was rather strange and all the stranger when one was obviously senior started remonstrating with the others for not have separated us. He did that in English, no doubt for our benefit. All of it was odd and might very quickly have become frightening I think.
Propaganda works best when those who are being manipulated are confident they are acting on their own free will.
