An Israeli doctor complained about a security screening she was forced to undergo at a U.S. airport.Dorit Silverman, a senior urologist at the Sheba Medical Center outside Tel Aviv, told Israeli media Sunday that during a visit to a conference in California last month, security personnel at the San Francisco Airport made her step into a bomb-detector booth that sprayed air over her.”My family died in the gas chambers in Europe. I never believed that 65 years later I would be marked, isolated and placed inside a gas chamber,” Silverman told Yediot Achronot. “I certainly did not think that that would happen in the country and city that are the most democratic, enlightened and tolerant in the world.”Silverman said she tried to find out if she had been singled out as an Israeli but received no answer from the security staff. According to Yediot, the Foreign Ministry in Jerusalem is pursuing Silverman’s complaint with U.S. officials.
