this is standard procedure. it can happen on any flight to israel or also to the US. I want to remind the flying public that many people get used by terrorists for their murderous plans. Sometimes it is not the person but the luggage that can be dangerous. A prize that was awarded by a European-Muslilm organisation should be subject to search! I thank the brave security guards for theire great work and sacrifice for their fellow citizens and the flying public. Lets be happy about good security. 99.9% of the people who get searched are innocent. but you need these stringent methods in order to catch the 0.01 that might have bad plans.
