After 3 flights in 2 (calendar) days, there are some observations you just can’t miss; with help from a frequent flier, here is what I learned about airport security:
Americans: Search your stuff.
Israelis: Search your eyes.
Americans: Use a logicless measure for discerning (born of disorganized fear).
Israelis: Use psychology and profiling.
Americans: Check if you’re carrying nail clippers or toothpaste.
Israelis: Check if you’re a terrorist.
