I agree with every word you wrote. Thranduil as a king was right to ask for reasons why strangers were passing through his kingdom. Let's try to imagine what customer officer would say if a stranger on the airport refused to give reasons for traveling.

Thank you, thank you, thank you! I defy any ruler of a realm to behave any differently than Thranduil did under the exact circumstances. In my estimation, he was compassionate even in executing a just judgement. And as you pointed out the Elves were beyond tolerant, but even in baseball, three strikes and you're out.

I'd like to make a short comment in support of your oppinion here:

Atleast 2 warnings (involving elven arrows ; ) were given by Haldir and his brothers to the Fellowship when the entered Lorien. To some, they were more like jokes, but they did scare Sam and convince Gimli to comply, so its really a matter of interpretation.

Eomer and his Eorlingas nearly speared Aragorn, Legolas, and Gimli for being in Rohan with out permission.

Tree-beard considered crushing Merry and Pippin in two, thinking they were orc spies, when they come to Fangorn.

Denethor is....well, Denethor in Gondor.

Kings, stewards, marchwardens, and various relations will be like that.

YES. When one enters another's domain, he is subject to new laws.
A very good point. :)
