The strip searching and the theft of the award took place AFTER she arrived in Israel, not before she got on the plane. Yes we here in the U.S. have to remove shoes, go through metal detectors and carry liquids in containers of 3 oz. or less. I often fly and have never been subject to the searches that Palestinians are subject to upon ARRIVING in Israel. Neither I nor anyone else I know who flies has ever been strip searched upon ARRIVING or DEPARTING an American airport. So don't try to compare the inspection of passengers in the US with the humiliation doled out to non-Jews arriving in Israel.
