If you are a twenty or thirty-something year old male, I strongly advise you not to travel with El Al from Torontoif you decide to visit Israel. My WestJet flight had just landed, and although I had over two hours before my connecting El Al departure to Tel Aviv, I decided to see where the gate was right after landing.

AMSTERDAM -- The Christmas Day attack on a jetliner over Detroit, combined with technological improvements to protect people's sense of modesty, could lead to dramatically wider use of full-body scanners that can see through travelers' clothing. Dutch officials said Wednesday they will immediately begin using the machines at Amsterdam's airport, where the Nigerian accused of trying to blow up the Northwest Airlines plane began his flight.
