On arrival I queued for about 10 minutes at passport control to be told that the same person had processed me coming into Israel 2 years ago. On the way out the Air France check-in was appalling but the security was pretty easy and friendly. They have to ask you the questions which they do and the whole thing again took about 10 minutes. The young lady who inspected my bags was pretty friendly and it took me about 10 seconds to re-pack them so no big deal. Then going through the personal security took about 5 minutes max - everyone was firm but polite so no problems. One of the security girls apologised for the delay. Tel Aviv will always be a unique airport because of the security situation but I had no problems with any of the security questions being asked or the way in which the people concerned asked them.
