What the article fails to mention is that, whilst it was not illegal to take an iPhone over to Israel (since it isn't exactly a kilo or heroin or anything), she would have been able to sell them on at a profit whilst still undercutting Apple who are gouging Israelis for up to $1200 per phone (currently retailing where she bought them in the UK for the equivalent of "just" $971).

She was trying to bring in 44 iPhones, which were clearly for commercial resale purposes. Doing so in such large quantities without declaring your merchandise and paying custom's taxes/fees is illegal. It also carries hefty fines. All countries hate that. It deprives them of their cut of your international transaction profits.
who will try 45? they didn't even make it with 44 failing isn't success unless that was your objective like the person hired to test airport security!
