The Israelis, well known for their prowess in the security arena, are developing the ‘next generation’of airport security device that eliminates the privacy concerns that come with full-body scanners now in use at US airports.

Shortly thereafter an announcement comes over the PA system: “Attention standby passengers, we now have a seat available on flight number ____. Shalom.”
