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

Submitted by Judeo-Christ (Canada), Nov 18, 2006 at 14:10

Amnesty International and Human rights watch are two of the most brazen double-faced oraganiizations on the planet. Notice how they are most prolific among western democracies but nowhere to be found in despotic and dictatorial nations like: North Korea, Iran, Indonesia, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Bangladesh, Cuba, Palestinian ruled areas etc where people are slaughtered and murdered in millions. They are plain and simple anti-western organizations and when I confronted them with my letters, they had absolutely no rational answer except to refer me to their websites.

Airport security and profiling is for the good of everyone no matter what race or color, so being concerned about infringing the rights of a few rather than the security of a nation is ridiculous and asinine. Threats to the United States and the West are coming solely from Moslems and Middle-Easterners so it is perfectly rational that we put our magnifying glasses mostly on these persons. It beggars my imagination that Americans want Freedom on the one hand and Security on the other, the two are not mutually exclusive as one needs to offset the other.
