American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Commitee - Not exactly a ringing endorsement of the idea

Reader comment on item: Does the [New York] Police Department Profile? Should It?

Mr. Pipes,

While I always enjoy your articles and almost always agree with your conclusions, I must retort regarding one comment you make in the article above. I read the article you linked to regarding the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Commitee's stand on racial profiling. From the article I would think they do not like the idea of using racial profiling as a large factor as Mr. Hikind suggests, but only as a small part of a much larger pool of factors. Keep up the good work.

Dave Katz

Daniel Pipes replies:

Hikind makes clear that profiling is just one small part of the picture - read his proposed legislation - so there is no disagreement.
