It is not that Israel's "powers that be" place greater emphasis on expediency. It is simply that they see no reason to hobble the vast majority who are beyond suspicion simply out of liberal political correctness. If I were an innocent Muslim I would understand perfectly well the need to scrutinize Muslims. After a I want to live, and I would realize ? as we all do ?that while not all Muslims are terrorists virtually all terrorists are Muslims. Punishing non-Muslims is stupid and delusional. We all know where the problem lays, so why inconvenience everyone else?
