Israel’s New ‘Cutting Edge’ Airport Security


TEL AVIV, Israel — The Israelis are developing an airport security device that eliminates the privacy concerns that come with full-body scanners.

It's an armored booth you step into that will not X-ray you, but, will detonate any explosive device you may have on your person.

Israel sees this as a win-win situation for everyone, with none of this crap about racial profiling.

It will also eliminate the costs of long and expensive trials.

You're in the airport terminal and you hear a muffled explosion.

Shortly thereafter, an announcement:

“Attention to all standby passengers, El Al is proud to announce a seat available on flight 670 to London.

Shalom!”

I wonder if after I retire I can get a part time job hosing down the insides of these booths?

It wouldn't work in Israel, but in the US, we could put a slab of bacon inside each airport security explosion proof box. That way when Abu blows himself up, he'd be denied entrance to paradise (because his death was unclean) since his blood was pork-infused.

The new slogan, "No Virgins for Abu"

I love it! It makes perfect sense and therefore could never happen here.

I can think of one prominent person to test it before it goes into use here.

Makes perfect sense.

Sig94, hose down with bacan grease?

Woodsterman (Odie) said...

LL, works for me. Bacan grease covered bodies.

Steve, let them eat pork.

Sandee, we're twins.

Woodsterman (Odie) said...

Tim, I'm afraid you're right.

Woodsterman (Odie) said...

Edutcher, I'll bet I know who that is.

Woodsterman (Odie) said...

Opie, you're so logical.

Obama would never allow the TSA to take such politically incorrect measure here against his own people.

Woodsterman (Odie) said...

Ron, we can dream can't we.

Now that's real "Social Justice"!

Ain't it great Scotty.

I would guess that it would work for quite a while. Those guys never seem to learn anything...

Race, hang a piece of bacon in there too. Then all is quiet in the skies.
