So your on a flight to Boston for business and four Islamic looking men walk into your waiting area and sit separately at opposite ends of the room: what should be going through your mind? Is Islamic profiling a good idea?
Most people don’t give it a second though, and likely there isn’t a problem. However, there is that off chance that there is. So what do you do, in this situation? Well, someone, if not a few people, need to go and disturb security and have them address those men.
This seems excessive surely, but America is at war with Islam. Do not let any politician, any smooth talking public official or clergy try and convince you that Islam is a religion of peace: for this is an outward lie. Gallup the polling organization has made public that 7% of the Islamic world are radical this means that over 150 million Muslims would love to blow you and your family out of the sky for Allah.
American Muslims understand this and must also understand that their motives will be questioned until the conflict is over. Sen. James Inhofe, R.-Okla at one point came out and openly suggested that racial and ethnic profiling be implemented. This is not radical it is necessary to safeguard the lives of all Americans: Islamic profiling is a good idea?
This statement obviously got some attention especially from the Council on American-Islamic Relations. Inhofe’s statement, instead of being seen as devise or discriminatory, should be celebrated as a victory for American security and embraced.
Now, it is always important to understand that Muslim terrorist don’t just come from Arabic countries, but can easily be Filipino or even of African decent. Always, keep an eye out for unusual behavior that may come from a man or woman, and never be frightened to inquire about their identity. If your gut says take another flight listen to it, but first make your concerns known.
