    To ensure we Americans never offend anyone -- particularly fanatics intent on killing us -- law enforcement and security screeners are not allowed to "profile" people in public places or security checkpoints. However, they will continue to perform random searches of 80-year-old women, little kids, airline pilots with proper identification, Secret Service agents who are members of the President's security detail, 85-year-old congressmen with metal hips and even Medal of Honor recipients. But targeting male Islamists between the ages 17 and 40 constitutes "ethnic profiling."

    Let's pause a moment and review....

    In 1972, 11 Israeli athletes were killed at the Munich Olympics by: (a) Your grandmother (b) A Midwest auto-parts dealer (c) A mom and her 6-year-old son visiting from Indiana (d) Islamist males between the ages of 17 and 40.

    In 1979, the U.S. embassy in Iran was taken over by: (a) A bluegrass band (b) Dallas Cowboy fans (c) A tour group of 80-year-old women (d) Islamist males between the ages of 17 and 40.

    During the 1980's numerous Americans were kidnapped in Lebanon by: (a) A family on their way to Disney World (b) Jesse Ventura (c) A Boy Scout Troop (d) Islamist males between the ages of 17 and 40.

    In 1983, the U.S. Marine barracks in Beirut was blown up by: (a) A pizza delivery boy (b) The UPS guy (c) Geraldo Rivera making up for a slow news day (d) Islamist males between the ages of 17 and 40.

    In 1985 the cruise ship Achille Lauro was hijacked, and a 70-year-old disabled American passenger was murdered and thrown overboard by: (a) A girls' choir (b) A hardware store owner (c) A secretary (d) Islamist males between the ages of 17 and 40.

    In 1985 TWA flight 847 was hijacked at Athens, and a U.S. Navy diver was murdered by: (a) A Marine officer with two weeks leave (b) A plumber going to visit his mom (c) A Catholic nun (d) Islamist males between the ages of 17 and 40.

    The feds already have their terrorist profiling guidelines Rev. Read their training material. Anyone who disagrees with the international community and the new economic order is to be considered a terrorist now.

    You don't have be an Islamist or even look "middle eastern" to be a suspect.

    Besides the fight against terrorism has always been aimed at you and me and little old ladies getting onto planes. It's about controlling the people and protecting the corporate state not protecting us from our cave dwelling former foreign policy assets.

    I agree with you Rev. We are afraid of them which is why our government won't profile them. Our government thinks if we appease them through political correctness, they'll forget about their goal of world domination by the sword.

    Dr. Ergun Caner and his brother Dr. Emir Caner (of Turkish descent) said after 9/11 that it is not racial profiling it is common sense. They said something like, "Look it was our people who carried out this attack. If it makes the skys safer detain us and search every inch of our bags. It only makes sense."

    Now if two former Muslims get it why doesn't everyone else?:BangHead:

    Collectivism gives me the creeps even it does make sense to everyone else. To deny one individual his constitutional protections for the common good because he looks "middle eastern" can only lead to less protections for the rest of us.

    What's next? Searching people because they look like crinimals? Or...

    Arbitrary warrantless searches on the sub way? Wait, we already do that.

    Guess I'm too late. Okay you collectivists got your way this time...but you just wait yer turn is coming. The system you trust today may just turn on you tomorrow. :eek:
