Don't forget that unclean infidels are not permitted to visit Mecca or Medinah

Reader comment on item: Time to Profile Airline Passengers?
in response to reader comment: Will Saudi Arabia complain about profiling?

Infidels are not permitted to visit Mecca and Medina because Muslims don't want unbelievers fouling their holy places by their presence.

One would only wish that our commentators and officials would bluntly remind Muslims of this whenever they complain of being singled out for extra scrutiny.

We should, in fact, stop issuing visas to the citizens of countries which do not issue visas to all American citizens on a non-discriminatory basis, but then our politicians wouldn't get the benefit of hawking with the Saudi Royals.
