1. More foolishness

It is insanely easy to have lots of free web-based email accounts all over the world, so any real "unwanted" person would simply open a clean email account with innocuous messages, whereas just normal law abiding, money carrying, tourists will open the only account they have. Is there anyone with a brain and not clinically paranoid in Israel?
2. Great idea! Wish America had done that....
ByMelissa ,   United States   (04.25.13)
We'd be terror less instead of obama's relaxed 'preferred muslim status' that allows terrorists preference over non terrorists to enter America and jeopardizes all Americans. And to add insult to injury obama can't make himself say "Muslim Terror ". There are 14 dead US troops from Ft. Hood and the bastard who assassinated them a Muslim, Dr. Nadal, who We financed, obama refers to as 'a workplace incident' and the most recent Boston massacre, was allowed by obama's FBI f-**Ked B-adly I -ntentionally. Can we impeach obama?
3. How about a little REALITY for #2?

Major Nidal Malik Hasan, M.D. was BORN in the United States. That is, he is a US CITIZEN as well as being a practicing Muslim. Note that the US has had Muslims since the late 1700s because it is estimated that 15 to 30 percent of the African slaves were Muslims. The best available figures today show that less than 30% of the Muslims in the US are of ME origin. So everything in #2 is just extreme prejudice based on nothing. And No, Obama can not be impeached for being a black democrat.
4. WOW? I am sure Stalin and Goebbels would have loved e-mail!

BUT COULDN'T THEY DELETE THEIR E-MAILS BEFORE BORDER ENTRY SECURITY?? If you tell God's truth-no problem If problem-God wanted it... to teach something either to traveller or security personnel
6. trying to avoid palestinian sympathisers making trouble

This is probably If they get suspicious at the airport that somebody might be some kind of sympathiser there to make trouble for the government then they can keep track of them or get details of their friends. I can't see that its going to do much because if you got free email accounts like Yahoo or Hotmail you can have a number of accounts. Potential trouble makers who are clued up on the fact airport security can check their email they will have one very innocent messages from friends and family which they can allow to be seen and the ones where they want to communicate with people they are working with they keep secret. WELCOME TO THE 21 CENTURY
7. To: No. 3

More Moslem charity and selflessness, eh? Have you forgotten that most of the slavers on the African continent were ARABS? And any of those Africans who were Moslem who arrived to the United States aboard slave ships promptly lost their faith. Most of them became Baptist. Most of them still are, or are members of the African AME Church. Obama can -- and should -- be impeached for high crimes and misdemeanors. We can start with the events in Boston, work backwards toward the horrific incident in Benghazi, and keep going, right on back to the fact that he was born in Kenya.
