Question: What kind of "democracy" prevents its citizens from leaving?

So one of the restrictions now imposed on Hanin Zuabi (Israeli Arab member of the Knesset who took part in the Gaza flotilla) is that she is not allowed to leave the country. Sounds a lot like the kind of democracy they used to have in the GDR: perhaps, like the German wall, the one Israel has built in the OT can serve to stop people escaping Israel as well as getting in.

Answer: the kind that is scared they might taste freedom and never come back.
