Submission + - Israel demanding access to tourist email

tick-tock-atona writes: Israel's airport security has long been known for being among the most stringent in the world. However, in a disturbing new development passengers suspected of being involved in political activism are being asked to login to their webmail accounts so that security agents can rifle through personal correspondence. One US tourist with a history of involvement in the BDS movement was held overnight before being flown back home, after she refused to login to her gmail account at the border.
Is this just the action of paranoid state? Or a taste of what's to come in other parts of the world?
