Got Something to Hide?

The International Solidarity Movement training pack offers the following valuable advice on deceiving Israeli airport security.

– Do NOT come in large groups
– Do NOT indicate that you are coming to join the ISM
– Do NOT indicate that you are planning to be in the West Bank and Gaza.
– DO have a good story prepared about why you are coming to ISRAEL
– DO have contact information and material to support your story

Do NOT carry any private information about Palestinians you’ve met or know. Business cards and names of people at upper level positions at organizations are OK, but never any private address or phone number. Got new friends? Write yourself an e-mail before you leave back home with names and contact information and dispose your notes. And don’t forget to clean sweep your laptop or PDA. Do NOT carry any sensitive paper. At least not when leaving. If you carry any paper or document you consider sensitive, one way or the other, then send them by fax or mail.

Does the above sound like the advice of an organization whose activities are legal and humanitarian in nature? Furthermore, what do they mean by “sensitive paper”? Could this perhaps include the names and addresses of Islamic Jihad operatives?
