Israel has been dealing with terrorists ever since she became a state.

My son flies back and forth to school all the time and had never been frisked. Considering the amount of flying he does it has gone very smoothly with very little inconvenience. I really think this is a case of the media blowing things out of proportion again. Considering how many people fly on a daily basis there have been relatively few stories about being 'frisked'.

As to Israel - when their terrorists start using air planes as a method of destruction -which hasn't happened there yet - I'm sure you will see some changes. That is an apples to oranges comparison.

When I flew with my 10 and 13 year old daughters this summer, THEY were put through the backscatter x-ray (virtual strip search) AND frisked! I was not.

(As to Israel - when their terrorists start using air planes as a method of destruction -which hasn't happened there yet -...)

It exactly because of Israel's security that the terrorists don't use planes as a method of destruction.

However, Israel profiles.....and it works. America doesn't want to offend anyone....so we strip search and frisk little girls instead.

I disagree - Israel's terrorists don't need to use airplanes to attack because for the most part they live right next door - they can walk on over. I have relatives very close to the area that is most often the target - when your most volatile enemy is right next door you have different modes of attack than when your enemies live across an ocean.
