    Like here in the US, political correctness run amok - accomplishes nothing. Hilou is more worried about arab feelings then Jewish safety. Kassams fall into Israel, the philadelphi corridor is swamped with smugglers and this is what MKs do. I quote the article "Security experts say that the work of security investigators at Ben Gurion airport is based on two principles: maximizing the security margins and questioning passengers according to the profiling method". AND WHO IS THE HIGHEST RISK? THE ARABS. Why pester Jews?
