comment Whose job is to check if the passenger has a valid visa to the destination he is travelling to?
The way your question reads, you had the option to either show him your passport (as is REQUIRED by the airline) OR "slip him $100". It sounds to me more like you caused the option of the bribe to come up - presuming you were willing to show your UK passport there would have been absolutely no reason for you to bribe him for anything! I'm guessing you refused, and he gave you an "option".

comment Is there a money machine in the Tel Aviv airport?
ATM's are pretty much ubiquitous in Tel Aviv and surrounding areas. And that include within Ben Gurion where you'll find plenty of them within the arrivals hall and elsewhere.

comment Why do some boarding passes fail to mention when gates close?
As a general rule, posting a copy of your boarding pass - including eticket number and/or booking reference - on a public website is normally not a good idea.

comment What are the lightest travel adapters/converters available for France?
Anything that adjusts voltage is going to be heavier than an equivalent device that doesn't, so by definition this isn't going to be the lightest as requested. Voltage conversion also almost certainly isn't needed for phone charging - basically all chargers are multi-voltage.

comment Can I cross the US/Canadian border with a copy of my US passport?
In a situation like this Canada allows you to withdraw your request for entry, which doesn't count against you in the future as you were never actually refused entry. A US citizen can never be refused entry into the US, regardless of a lack of documentation. The issues becomes proving you are a citizen, which can be done but takes time.
