Gay Porn Star Allegedly Strip-Searched and Humiliated at Israeli Airport Over Arabic Name

Ibrahim Moreno, a French-Cuban gay porn star who performs exclusively for Lucas Entertainment, claims that security agents at Israel’s Ben Gurion International Airport strip-searched, interrogated and treated him “like a terrorist,” he says, just because of his Muslim-sounding name.

While trying to board a flight to France following a club performance in Tel Aviv, Moreno says Israeli customs officials detained him for two and a half hours, interviewed him four times, emptied out his suitcase, threw away his personal hygiene items and forced him to undress, leaving him in tears and nearly missing his flight.

In a now deleted Facebook post, the performer posted a picture of himself in tears aboard a plane and the following comments:

Finally at home after a rather dreadful weekend. I never thought traveling to another country would make me feel like shit.

Today at the Tel Aviv airport back home I have been humiliated, treated like a terrorist and simply because my name is IBRAHIM. Why can not I have a name of Arab origin?

After 2:30 to enter Tel Aviv and three interrogations believed the worst would have happened, but no … it was only a sign of what would come later.

I’m GAY, I’m not a MUSLIM. I don’t speak any Arabic language, but if I carry a cross that allows me to be judged and humiliated.

After several checks (they) undressed me. I could only cry of the impotence and the rage to a few seconds of losing my flight.

Moreno adds that he is actually a Christian. In response, the airport issued the following statement:

“The security checks at Ben Gurion Airport are meant to protect the passengers’ safety and the safety of their flights, and are carried out on all passengers exiting the country regardless of their identity, nationality etc., under guidelines issued by the relevant authorities. Items that are not allowed to be shipped inside a carry-on are confiscated, as is the norm around the world. Regarding the claim that he was stripped, when a suspicious finding is received, it must be scanned using technological devices.”
