This will make you feel real secure

This is from German television, but the technician is an English-speaker. Watch as the 'passenger' goes through a full body scan, which catches his cell phone but misses his bomb components. Here's an explanation from the Daily Caller (Hat Tip: Instapundit):
A demonstration of a full-body scanner on German television last week revealed that the device, which uses infrared technology, was able to detect little more than a cellphone, a knife, and the girth of the man walking through it.

The problem? He was also packing a bomb.

“Admittedly, he only faced the scanner from the front and not from the side,” wrote computer security pro Bruce Schneier. “But he also didn’t hide anything in a body cavity other than his mouth — I didn’t think about that one — he didn’t use low density or thinly sliced PETN, and he didn’t hide anything in his carry-on luggage. Full-body scanners: they’re not just a dumb idea, they don’t actually work.”
Let's go to the videotape.

Anyone STILL not convinced that the Israeli way is the only way to do airline security? Maybe now they'll have you open your mouth like for a throat culture in the US and Europe. Yeah, that'll solve the problem.

No Muslims, no terror.

That's mathematics!

I still firmly believe the greatest threat comes from the staff working on the airport .
It's only a matter of time before a Muslim working on an airport will get a bomb on a plane.
Mark my words.
