This is an awesome article about Israel's security methods and the new technologies being developed. If you think that airport security in Europe and North America is inefficient and unnecessarily intrusive now, after you read this article you will know that for sure. Basically the new technologies are quick, accurate, and don't require profiling in the sense that is barred by Political Correctness. The tests focus on identifying individuals likely to be terrorists rather than confiscating their shampoo and toothpaste, taking x-ray photographs, or requiring objectionable body searches.
