While I've heard countless arguements in the media, I've never really heard any anyone actually oppose profiling in high-security areas, such as airports. While I can understand the inconvience, there absolutely is a neccessity.

But do you guys' really care if they're being inconvienced? I don't. I'd rather see anyone wearing a turban heavily examined and investigated when they come through the airport wearing a dress and looking like they've never even heard of a razor.

But, really? Who cares? I'm curious to know the majority opinion here at the FF Pub.

P.S. Call it racist, but it'd be stupid not to.

I do.

How about we now we turn around and ask Jews if they didnt mind being profiled because Nazis said they were bad, evil, wretched people, who were undermining the country and the continent's economy for thier own gains? (point: were they REALLY bad people? No. Did they deserve profiling? No.)

It creates mistrust. It creates hatred. It creates anything BUT friendship and ease.

So again..I dont agree with racial/religious profiling. No one would. Its easy to support something that doesnt target your ass.

If the jews blew up two of the most important buildings in my country, killed thousands of people and continued to attempt to overthrow democracy, yes, it would be intelligent to profile them.

:| Im thinking its time to racially profile white americans in the Middle East + Wherver else, for:

1) Bombing a bunker which killed hundreds of civilians during the Gulf War. 2) Dropping two nuclear bombs on two civilian targets in Japan during WWII. 3) Massacering 24 civilians in Haditha. 4) My Lai Massacre. 5) Any and all bombs which killed afghani civilians in Afghanistan. 6) Umm, this is taking too long to think up of what was done by Americans. So #6 is basically anyone from any nationality, being killed or bombed by an American. Preferablly White, and religious, Christian-wise. __________________________

Never mind. Point is you are dumb.

and I just made this list for show, I dont agree with racially profiling white americans(just if anyone wonders)

anyhow how do you know what a muslim looks like? Or an Arab even(considering after 9/11 Indian Sikhs in the US were largely targetted by the average blind flag waver)?

Okay, go ahead. That's the thing, I don't care if I'm profiled. I don't live in the Middle East, I live here, in the west.

:| are you even making this thread for any sort of discussion at all, or just being a flame-bait?

And there ARE others that fit the criteria in the MidEast.

edit: I shouldve added..Coptic Christians are, as being claimed, religiously profiled in Egypt. In Egypt religion is required on the national ID. So Jobs, and whoever else, can decriminate based on religion. And christians are claiming this is happening to them. I dont agree with what the government does. It creates mistrust of Christians and Muslims, even though forever we've lived side by side, even under the same roof.

It hurts people socially, and economically. Now the LAPD wants to map all areas occupied by Muslims..wtf???

Racial profiling is wrong (publicy accusing a person of a crime he didn't commit is a crime in itself), makes the problem worse (by creating more anger towards the US) and isn't effective or reasonable (due to the small percentage of muslims actually comitting terrorist attacks in the US and the fact that more and more terrorists are people who already live in the target-country and/or don't look like your stereotypical towel-wielding suicide-bomber).

What's the point other than harassment? Do you really think a terrorist will make himself look like a potential terrorist?

Well I rather have everyone searched as normal, the only types of muslims I would be worried about are the ones coming in with Arab robes. But even then extremists are not that stupid to walk in like that. Everyone should be under suspision, you cannot judge a muslim by the clothes he wears or the color of his skin. What if a white muslim bombed America? Would it be all changed?

Ironically a white american muslim really DID join Al Qaeda.

But even then extremists are not that stupid to walk in like that.

The robes are a cultural Symbol of Arabic peoples. Most terrorists dont dress like that. Only people like the self proclaimed sheikhs like OBL or Al Zawaheri..your average achmed suicide bobmer never even touched that robe.

I actually beleive most terrorists would tend to blend in with everyone, wearing normal western clothing, being clean shaven(or small mustache), etc.
