However, one thing I would like clarified about the story: if this was a connection, presumably they were checked in for the MAD-TLV leg when they checked in at the US starting point. How could they have been one of the last to check in?
Exactly what I'm wondering. Very strange.

Meh, 90% of FTers always defend the airline and harass the OP.

Yeh exactly why I hate FT. They seem to think it's shticky to bash a op like this and defend the airlines. To the contrary you will always find some nice members as well who will defend the op.
You can say what you think when you think what you say.

Probably has something to do with location and time.

Rereading OP, I highly doubt they were singled out due to age. Though it is likely that they were singled out due to the fact that they were a party of 3 - much easier to deal with one party of 3 if they needed to bump 3 passengers, than to deal with 3 parties of 1, or even a party of 2 and another single passenger. Oldest of the 3 being 17, might not have been so obvious to be a minor, so error might have not been caught due to appearance. Doesn't excuse the airline, but could be a bit of an explanation.

No I didn't. Are you related to בלעם? He claimed to know what other think.  ;)

That is an excellent point.  When we asked them this was the excuse that they gave us.
