true story: a few years ago in Israel, I am entering the train station in Tel Aviv. At the security check, the police guard asked me, in Hebrew for my Teudat Zehut. I replied in Hebrew that I didn't have one and presented my US passport. He again demanded my T.Z. and I replied that I am an American and that's why I have no T.Z. the guard was shocked. "So if you're not Israeli, how come you speak Hebrew so well? it was an odd twist of profiling.
