I love HP, but their subsidiary EDS provides the Israeli Ministry of Defence with a ‘biometric access control system’ which vets Palestinians crossing into Israel to work. The system matches data from smart cards the workers carry to the shape of their hands and heads. More here. Creepy evil oppressive shits! This I found out from the relevant page at Who Profits?, a database of firms involved in the Gaza occupation maintained by an Israeli organisation, The Coalition of Women for Peace.
