Re: Why Israel didn't ban electronic devices on flights to Tel Aviv?

If Israeli agencies are so worried about the risk of an exploding laptop, why didn't they ban them on flights to Israel?

Israeli security rather famously look for a bomber first, for a bomb second. Makes things scalable. Everybody else does the scalability (a.k.a. "profiling") bit, too, event as they try to pretend they don't (hint: "you have been randomly selected for additional screening" is anything but random), but there is a difference between highly educated and trained personnel with security background following well thought through procedures and techniques and minimum wage TSA drones following a "security for dummies" instruction book.
