Re: Why Israel didn't ban electronic devices on flights to Tel Aviv?
That's because it's security that takes security seriously.
Israel knows what it's doing. This is why there hasn't been a terrorist attack on an El Al since the 70's. The US don't know that patience nor the time to train high school dropouts on how to spot a potential security threat even though it was dancing naked in front of them. This is why the American's way is to simply throw money (oodles of it) at the problem and hoping someone will solve it for them.
The US send planeload of their agents to Tel Aviv to watch and learn how the Israelis did it. In the end, they fly back home, write a thick report (another American forte) only for the said report to be thrown into the "too hard" basket.
