How many airplanes have been brought down by Islamic men traveling alone? The underwear bomber, the shoe bomber, and the 9/11 murderers all had something in common and guess what? It wasn’t fake breasts. They were all adherents of radical Islamic theology.

Yes, I know. Religion is a private matter and the State has no right to question people because of their faith. autodesk-autocad-mep-2016 But how can one’s religious beliefs be more untouchable than one’s privates? Seems a little silly that after the passenger has been stripped down, fondled, and otherwise humiliated to refrain from asking about religious views for fear of causing offense.

Israel’s view of airport security is very straight forward. autodesk autocad mechanical 2016 You can always hide a bomb, but hiding a bomber is much harder. Airport security agents are trained to ask all sorts of random questions because no matter what their cover stories, terrorists put on the spot always mess up. The agents do not care where I went to Hebrew school as a child, they do care if I get all flustered by the question.

Anyone of any religion or nationality can board a plane here. Some people just get asked more questions to make sure they are not hiding something.

At Ben Gurion, they do no strip, fondle, or take full body scans.  They look you in the eye and ask questions.

And you know what?

The terrorists don’t get on our planes.

    It is coming to this: All flights will have three planes – one with naked man, one with naked women, and the third with all the luggage. Then you will feel safe!!!

    Good one, Yarden! I haven’t flown recently, but I guess I’ll have to ask a shai’la before my next trip: Which yukky method. if any, is preferable halachichly?

  3. Yochanan says:

    While TSA, as required by the US administration, spends their time and effort covering their political behinds, Israeli airport security spends its time and effort identifying terrorists. No doubt about who to trust. Thanks Yarden!

  4. Eliezer says:

    When my mother came into Israel last, she was a bit surprised when after telling the Israeli security that she is a morah, they proceded to ask her what holiday is coming up, which Chanukah, and then they asked her, can you tell me the story about it. She asked “Do you want the 3 year old version”.
