Reader comment on item: What Security Measures vis-à-vis Western Muslims?

Submitted by R V (United States), Aug 13, 2006 at 01:13

How would you identify a Muslim in a line to board the plane? How would you know who to scrutinize closer than others?
Your concern, Dr, Pipes, regarding converts and their legislative implications still stands even regarding hightened security measures. We might have no choice, but to ban this distructive religion. True, it does go against the American spirit, yet it is not a contradiction that such a move may be the only thing that will save it.

Intelligence is needed, such as is used in customs. I acknowledge that this is difficult, but it is legal, moral, practical, and feasible, unlike the idea of bannng Islam.
