....journalists and especially Arabs and visitors to Palestinian areas seem prone to being targeted with aggressive questioning, long luggage examinations and even strip searches.

And that's a problem because.....?

I hope El Al security will question their procedures every day:

“Are we strict enough, thorough enough, and vigilant enough?”

Leave to the AP to pile on with the anti-Semitism. Couched, of course, in “concerns”.

When most every nation hates you and you’re surrounded by millions of Muslim terrorists salivating to blow you up then perhaps you would sympathize with somewhat inconvenient airport security.

Israel’s Ben-Gurion Airport seems to stand alone in the developed world with its security techniques, often leaving travelers dumbfounded.

Only to the un-initiated. Not falling into a routine is part of a good security plan. Routines are learned (by your enemies) and may be exploited. Variation, being unpredictable, these are assets.

Gee it’s not like many countries in the world would like nothing better than to kill a plane load of people on flights from Israel.

Any one who whines about their security measures can alway stay home, take a boat or hire an airplane.

There is alway one a-hole who thinks they are more important than everyone else and shoull be treated different.

Suck it up and stop being a crybaby.

In 1986 I was surrounded by a uniformed security guard, a cleaning lady, a ticket agent, and a Rabbi (all armed) when I put my bag down and took two steps toward the counter to ask directions. "Is that your bag?" in heavily accented English. "Yes, sir." was my meek reply. "Please keep it with you at all times."

A terrorist attack never entered my mind after that.

oh boo friction’ hoo. So some one is dumfounded because they don’t understand Israeli security measures. They have a heck of a lot better record than the groping perverts at the TSA.

Some people just think they are entitled to do what ever they want without regard to anyone or anything else.

Freedom is not license

Special procedures for the bearded savages is a good idea. Problem is knowing which passengers are savages, with or without the beard.

Anyone who has been in Israel and flown from Ben Gurion Airport knows that the questioning and inspection process is very thorough and lacking any and all considerations of political correctness. Knowing that each and every passenger on board the plane with you went though exactly the same process and was cleared is comforting, to say the least. And if, as the subject of this story seems to have felt, one is perturbed by the invasiveness or wants to complain about something that appears illogical they are always welcome to hire a boat and sail to Cyprus. The inspectors don’t give a flying you-know-what about “feelings”.

The questions are asked to help security personnel figure out what might be a potential “terrorist trigger” or any behavior pattern you would not expect from a tourist. They’re in fact far less intrusive and degrading than the useless security theater millions of Americans go through at their airports. Israel focuses on behavior; the American focus is on things. Questioning is designed to protect the Arabs as well as Jews and other people coming into the airport. What Israel’s critics forget is that the country is securing the most important human right of all: the right to live. And I consider that far more important than hurting someone’s personal feelings. If someone’s personal feelings get hurt through a security check, due amends can be made. But no one can bring back the dead. Israel’s security procedures are so effective no one is thinking of changing them.

"Israel’s Ben-Gurion Airport seems to stand alone in the developed world with its security techniques."

They stand alone in the effectiveness of their security techniques, too. They don't seem to have problems with passengers entering the airplane with stolen passports, like Malaysia Airlines does.
