3. I've been through the Tel Aviv airport, and they question everyone.
I was also questioned, and I am the same demo as you are. But I don't know how the US would do this, given the amount of people and airports in this country. I don't like the idea of profiling people solely due to the color of their skin. What color was Richard Reid? And is there enough time to profile everyone here?
