I received an email today regarding the latest Israeli technology – I believe it was tongue in cheek, but I’d vote for it. In a heartbeat. It’s everything I want from my government: protection, security, budget conscious, equal opportunity, liberty and the blind eye of Lady Justice:
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!”
Maintenance, clean up at Gate 2, please.
