    no body scans, no shoes off, liquids allowed through, baby in stroller allowed to go through regular security check. BUT, about 15 different HUMANS screening each person, profiling etc. In fact a Porte Rican guy who looked similar to our ‘cousins’ and his very blonde girlfriend went through an intensive search and questioning. They were escorted all the way to the plane. This is the way to do it! Hashem should protect us all but America must learn from Israel.

    The dafka broken US legal/judicial system (that is, what is REALLY driving the US airport security protocol mess) would end up basically giving away, like water, monetary awards and “damages” to millions of offended, entitled Americans for being profiled. Israel doesn’t play the politically correct game. Moshiach now!

    as long as we have government controlled airport security and were profiling things (laptops, liquids, underwear etc) instead of people people were never actually going to be safe anyway, so let’s do the smart thing, eliminate the TSA and bring in private security that can get the job done.

    maybe americans just cant be trained to use their intellects to discern who is and who isnt a terror threat, so they may need scans etc. imagine what would happen if they instituted the israeli questions here. “but the bomber promised me he packed his luggage himself!”

    Interesting idea, but then the government’s going to get involved anyway – supervising the private security firms, right?

    Having gov’t AND private trying to make sense of security would then seem like even more bureaucracy… just a thought.

    It’s not that Americans are stupid, they’re actually smart – avoiding millions of lawsuits so that the legal system can won’t become even more clogged with shtuyot, The legal/judicial system is the problem – frivolous lawsuits given kavanah and rewards. See comment #2. Have faith in the people, my friend.

    Everyone say what you want but i believe that if any of you were profiled you would cry out that it is racism and was because you’re jewish or have a beard. Let the TSA do their jobs, its in everyones best interest

    the US Government will never openly adopt an Israeli policy or procedure in these times. Regardless of whether or not it would be beneficial for the country.

    People will stop complaining if the problem is taken care of

    I know someone who was born in Morocco — and the few times he was selected for “random” screenings, he was actually quite happy that he was profiled….

    Though I still think that screening a Lubavitcher man with his Lubavitch family isn’t much profiling just because he was born in Morocco….
