The way I hear it, profiling has kept terrorists from setting foot on an EL AL Airlines flight since the 1960’s...........just sayin.
While the Israelis use on HUMINT and Technology, it is the HUMINT interviews that filter out possible suspects.
Israelis know more or less what they are looking for, the US is not sure.
All Israelis who work for El Al or at Ben Gurion airport or at El Al facilities around the world all did military duty in one form or another - they know who they are dealing with and what they are capable of.
The last time there was a Hijacking at Tel Aviv was 1972 Sabena (Belgium) Airlines.
Israeli commandos disguised as mechanics stormed the plane and killed the terrorists. Who was in the raid? Both Ehud Barak and Benjamin Netanyahu. Netanyahu was slightly wounded.
Profiling works, PC kills...go Israel!!
