Israel bans iPads
Ministry does not let iPad into Israel

The iPad does not meet Israel's Wi-Fi standards, which are similar to the European standards rather than US standards.

The Ministry of Communications has not issued an entry permit for the iPad. The Ministry said, "The iPad, which is today only sold in the US, operates using a Wi-Fi modem suitable for US standards."
The announcement added, "Since the Wi-Fi regulations in Israel are similar to the European standards, which are different from the US standards that allow low-supply transmissions, the supply transmission prevents the device from receiving approval in Israel."

Is it a security issue or are they mad about something?

9teen No, I'd say that it's more of a Hollywood greed issue. Deliberately dividing the world into incompatible zones, so stuff that works in one place won't work in another. I suspect that it causes a lot of unwanted technical hassles.

I found about this the hard way back in the 90's when I brought half a dozen of my favorite VCRs from the US to the UK and they wouldn't work.

Zec 12:3 And in that day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though all the people of the earth be gathered together against it.
Psa 9:17 The wicked shall be turned into hell, [and] all the nations that forget God.

STOCK UP NOW. You should have at least 6 months worth of basics for every member of your household. Stay away from crowds when trouble starts, do not forget water storage, tobacco is worth more than gold or silver, and be kind to hungry children.
