After Brussels Attack, World Looks to Israel as Model for Airport Security

Daniel Bar On

After the terror attack in Brussels, many wonder if higher security could help prevent more attacks from occurring - and experts now want to learn from Israel.

With Brussels in lockdown and the French prime minister saying that Europe is “at war,” European leaders held emergency security meetings and deployed more police, explosives experts, sniffer dogs and plainclothes officers, with some warning against travel to Belgium...

“The threat we are facing in Europe is about the same as what Israel faces,” said Olivier Guitta, the managing director of GlobalStrat, an international security consultancy. “We have entered an era in which we are going to have to change our way of life and take security very seriously.”
