One simple observation. The United States goes to great lengths to throw away any liquid that is over 2.4 ounces when traveling on a airplane. As an experiment I took a bottle of water in the airport within Israel. Three security checks, and some detailed questions, and not one comment on my water. How is it that in a country that has had to deal with higher instances of terror they seem to overlook a 1 liter bottle of water. Let me propose that perhaps this 2.4 ounces of liquid danger is simply a waste of time, and does absolutely nothing. I also would like to know why its not possible to bring in one bottle, but you can fill a quart size bag with little bottles that total over 15 ounces. Bravo TSA!
