Every group has once been profiled - now Muslims - who could be tomorrow

Reader comment on item: American Law Enforcement Really Does Profile Muslims – The Siraj Case

Submitted by Bilal (United States), May 14, 2006 at 00:26

Every distinct group/culture/religion entity has been profiled in history when it stands up for its rights or appears to challenge the statusquo. Just a decade earlier communists were profiled and stigmatized. I guess now it is the time of the Muslims. However in hindsight one cannot forget the injustices that result from this policy & procedures. This also shows that we all have demons we want to identify and blame for our own shortcomings and blindspots. Profiling Muslims will not solve the problem of the global inequity, and lack of freedom and democracy in Muslim countries while we continue to support the regimes that serve our purpose and are pulled by our strings.
