I used ELAL this past fall and was searched and frisked like any other person going on the flight. It's proper security which has been stepped up after the muslims hijacked the plane that did 9/11. Let's not forget that in the US customs they sliced and diced a lulav and esrog (palm branch and citron) and which are JEWISH RELIGIOUS items.. could have been treated with some respect !! so don't tell me that the Israelis are racist!!!
