Move along, no terrorists here.

Reader comment on item: Should airport security procedures include ethnic and religious profiling?

Submitted by Michael (United States), Nov 15, 2006 at 22:20

All terrorists today are Muslim. The odd one that isn't is statistically invisible. All Arabs are not Muslim. Some Arabs are Maronite Christian, Chaldean Christian, Coptic Christian to name a few. Christian Arabs are not terrorists, They don't blow themselves up to promote the Christian Faith or to win heaven.

It seems that common sense would demand that all Muslims be subject to carefull observation and profiling. As has been pointed out, every Muslim is volatile, a loaded gun that may suddenly, inexplicably become violent. The problem is that common sense is no longer common among people these days so... check that infant's diaper for WMD and that elderly lady yonder looks like a potential biological threat.
