Liquid situation at TLV?

One of the things I used to enjoy about TLV is they didn't care about liquids. I used to bring bottles of Israeli wine or Olive oil through security as gifts when flying abroad . Have they changed this recently? Flying later in the week .

You can take as many bottles as you want. The only exception is flights to the US.

In general they haven't, but apparently if you get a 'low' security score you're not allowed any liquids at all, never happened to me so strictly based on reports of friends/colleagues/other FTers...

Because Israel is the only place in the world in which security screening mainly relies on personal face-to-face interrogation.

Its ok if you are taking a direct flight, if you are on an indirect flight via, say LHR, you won't be able to take them own your onward journey. I know I am stating the obvious, but worth remembering.

Even for flights to US, it's not really so hard to get the liquids on the plane if you wanted to...

In all sincerity: The Israeli perspective on security is personal and subjective; not general and objective.
Not that its done so as to comply with all the hissy-fitters out there, but the Israeli doctrine maintains that a person with a gun/bomb/knife/explosive is only a threat if s/he is determined to be of mind to use it. Thus, they don't look for the objects (they do in practicality, but I am talking about the doctrine), they look for the people. Grandma with a wheelchair is pretty automatically not a threat - though they will treat her as a threat if they sense she was in the presence of people who would be a threat. The Israeli doctrine primarily looks for the bomber or the bomber's unknowing accomplice. The bomb is secondary. Everywhere else in the world, its pretty much the opposite.
