      The map borders you draw for Israel contain illegal settlements internationally condemned in accordance with the Oslo agreement to split Israel and Palestine.

            So... security is racist?
            Sure, got it.
            As always, security is not politically correct enough...
            "Do we need to improve air port security?
            If it's at the expense of times, then maybe we don't.
            If it's at the expense of snowflakes' feelings, then we won't"

                if security lowers
                criminals and terrorist and hyjackers have a more easy job
                so i say keep the security like this untill theres either a hyjack or
                a attack then make the planes later and make the security better

                  The idea isn't to stop an attack. It's to convince terrorists that it isn't worth the risk. If your security thwarts an attack - then it failed. Because the only 100% sure way to prevent an attack is to convince them not to try one.

                  Security isn't about stopping the bad guys. It's about getting the bad guys to go somewhere else. And you to this by appearing to be better protected than the business down the street.

                  And the biggest issue in good security is the fact that if your security is good - adverse events are prevented. But the fact that there are no adverse events makes the security budget high on the list of departments to cut in order to reduce expenses.

                  There are a lot of people who think that the US military budget should be cut because they do not feel threatened. They forget that the goal of the military is to ensure that we never feel threatened.

                    12:00 3 hours early is normal for an airport isnt it? I always arrive at least 3 hours early and I dont live in a crazy country like Israel or the US

                                        The best security is to train security officers in recognizing the body language and facial features/micromovements of people who are guilty or have some ulterior motive on their minds. The problem is when people are caught this way, or pulled out of line for a closer search of their persons and belongings, they may happen to fall in to a specific cultural group/skin color/religion/etc. And all of a sudden we have people who have practically zero experience living in a dangerous environment or living in a country that is under a constant threat of attack, telling those responsible for our safety and security to not continue with their methods. Even though their methods are 100% analog, never break down, only get better with more use and never fail due to some computer glitch. These weak minded individuals happen to be the loudest and end up making changes on behalf of the planet, that ultimately make things MUCH less safer.

                                              The Israeli airport process is absolutely terrifying. I have gone through it twice and they’re intense but nice and smiling and not to terrifying until you accidentally start stuttering in conversation and they become a little less pleasant.

Of course, it's much safer than driving a car, but does that really compensate the lives lost due to draught or floodings in the future? I personally think we should fly less, which will in turn decrease the terrorists interest in aviation, as not many people will make use of it. And of course, it would be much better for the environment :)

He packed his spud handgun (potato gun) into her suitcase without her knowing because he wanted to take a toy on holiday. Needless to say, she was asked to step aside (probably given a number 10). Instead of throwing the handgun away, Israeli airport security mailed the gun back to their home address after the holiday.
