    Luggage is not frisked, people are. Luggage is searched. But using the word 'frisked' in proximity to the phrase 'two women' gives those readers who skim the article the impression that the women were frisked in front of everyone. And that result is not unintentional. But what can we do -- folks at Haaretz.com are required as a condition of their employment to turn every page on their site into verbal weapons to be used against the evil zionist entity, hopefully to lead to its destruction or dismemberment and replacement by the People's Democratic Republic of Palestine.
