Just returned from a trip to TLV via EWR. I was always under the impression that going through security was really strict. After being asked a couple of questions prior to security which took all of less than a minute, I went to the conveyor belt put my belongs on it to be screened. I was not asked to take off shoes, nor was I asked to display the zip lock bag with my toilitries, everything went through the scanner, I walked through the metal detector and that was it. So what's the problem in the US and Canada?
