Profiling is not the answer.

Reader comment on item: Time to Profile Airline Passengers?

Submitted by Victoria (United States), Aug 22, 2006 at 21:17

I believe if you start to profile people of any Nation in this country you are asking for trouble with those who are being discriminated against who come from or are of eastern origin by birth. It may deter the problem for awhile but in the long run it creates dissention for those that are born in this Country with the young generation.

Profiling is not the solution. I heard of profiling from my parents who were in W11 when they were profiling Jews and in the Netherlands and my father and mother fought the Nazi regime agains such practises. Not only Jewish people but also Gypsies etc. that did not fit the mold of the German System. What is more important is to educate those born in our Nations about our system of Government and teach them to appreciate the Constitution of the United States and to have respect for this Country they choose to live in.

I am very much aware and have read many books on Islam and its Religion, but not to listen to them nor to reason with them is not going to solve Terrorism. Profiling only adds more fuel to the fire. We need to engage with top leaders of all Nations who are for stability around the world if this is to their interest of their people. In my opinion we need to be faithfull to God the Father Who commands each one of us to love Him first and to obey Him through the example of his Son Jesus Christ Who showed us to love our neighbor as ourselves. We are each brothers keeper and if we don't go back to His Word. If we don't point people back to His Word, the world is destine to be in a constant turmoil and at war with each other. I realize this may sound very simplistic, but this is what The Lord God is speaking to each and every one of usto do. Seek first the Kingdom of God and His righteousnes and every thing else will be given to you. This is what I believe we need to pass on to the world if we are to survive. It is not easy, because most of us think we are gods in ourselves and can fix every thing in this world, but this is not our world this is His World that He created for us and He is the One Who choose us to live here from the very beginning. What a privilage it is to have the oppertunity to live in this great world with all its beauty and resources He gave us to enjoy, including His creatures-men/women, as well as children. PRAISE THE LORD.
