Sometimes, the MSM Loves Sabra Experts, Part 2

December 31, 2009 11:34 by

Cathy Kelly of the Toronto Star picked up on (or perhaps coined?) a new buzzword:

"Israelis, unlike Canadians and Americans, don't take s— from anybody. When the security agency in Israel (the ISA) started to tighten security and we had to wait in line for — not for hours — but 30 or 40 minutes, all hell broke loose here. We said, 'We're not going to do this. You're going to find a way that will take care of security without touching the efficiency of the airport."

That, in a nutshell is "Israelification" – a system that protects life and limb without annoying you to death.

Do read the whole article. I haven't seen Israeli experts on any topic get such positive press in awhile. If only the MSM would give sabras some credibility in issues of politics and the Mideast confict too.
