While behavior profiling may be as important as racial/ethnic profiling, CBS ignores the fact that 99.9% of all terrorist acts have been perpetrated by Muslims. Reason enough for ALL MUSLIMS to be subject to extra screening, regardless of behavior.
The attempt by Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, the “Underwear Bomber,” to blow up Northwest Airlines Flight 253 to Detroit would have been preposterous, if he hadn’t come so close to killing himself and nearly three hundred other people on Christmas Day.
CBS asks Nihad Awad, head of the TERRORIST FRONT GROUP Council on American-Islamic Relations, what he thought about it and he said, “Not again “. . . and knew what was coming. “That’s exactly what I said – ‘There you go again, oh God help us, I hope it was not a Muslim,'” said Awad.
“I know it’s not politically correct to say, I believe in racial and ethnic profiling,” said Sen. James Inhofe, R-Okla. “First of all, it (racial profiling) is un-American,” says Awad. “Second, have we learned any lesson from targeting minorities in America? Targeting people because of who they are is wrong, counterproductive. And we look always back in shame on our history.”
After the Christmas Day incident, the Obama administration announced that citizens of 14 countries – all but one, Cuba, predominantly Muslim – would be subjected automatically to extra screening before boarding flights to the United States. That controversial policy was rescinded by Barack Hussein Obamaa few days ago. (Apparently in another effort to appease his Muslim brethren)
According to a recent CBS News poll, 51% of Americans say yes to racial profiling, compared to 38% who say no. CBS NEWS
