Unfortunately for many, the universe has a sense of humor and Israelis spending time as hostages only to get merc'd by the IDF frothing at the mouth over hostages being taken is exactly the sort of thing it finds funny.

I remember reading about UN and other aid movements during the late-stage Bosnian war and how even after cease fires were all agreed to and aid agreed to be allowed to move, to read guys talk about it it really seemed like 90% of driving and delivering aid was the experience of -- even with literal armed UN escort -- being held up for hours and hours at a time because you ran into roadblock #x of ?? and they've got (and are maybe pointing) guns and not letting you through. Radio calls get made, lots and lots of waiting, and finally they spit and grin and stare & let you through... and you hit the next one, and the whole thing repeats.
