CAIR: Don't racial profile after airline incidents December 27, 2009 23:04 EST
SNIPPET: "WASHINGTON (AP) -- A Muslim advocacy group is urging passengers, crews and security personnel to avoid ethnic and religious "profiling" in the wake of the attempted bombing of a Northwest Airlines flight in Detroit on Christmas Day.
In a statement, Ibrahim Hooper of the Washington, D.C.-based Council on American-Islamic Relations says, "While everyone supports robust airline security measures, racial and religious profiling are in fact counterproductive and can lead to a climate of insecurity and fear.""

Others were former street gang members. Special Branch monitored them as they flew to Yemen, in the Middle East, from British airports in the spring and summer. In almost every case, their tickets were paid for in cash and bought less than a week before travel. The source added: "Imams would have promised them rewards in heaven for becoming suicide bombers prepared to kill Westerners."") (December 27, 2009)

I racially, ethnically and behaviorly profile all the time...sue me!!!
CAIR - SOS (Same old Sh*t).
They keep popping up after terrorist acts like puss pimples on an ass. Somebody has got to pop them, like the pussheads they are.
Bookmarking for future reference....Thanks a bunch.
Statistics are pretty scientific.
As a male I have yet to have a Dr suggest a mammogram.
I’m not eager to get into ethnic and racial profiling. But what the heck are we supposed to do? I fully understand that not all Muslims are terrorists; far from it. But, when disporportionate numbers of terrorists are Muslims, what exactly does CAIR think our reaction should be????????
Hey CAIR, most Muslims aren’t terrorists, but most terrorists ARE Muslims. It’s not profiling, it’s smart self defense.
“... racial and religious profiling are in fact counterproductive and can lead to a climate of insecurity and fear.”
No irony there !
Great, Cindy, but couldn’t you provide some links to CAIR???
To CAIR. Go screw yourself. I'm not blind and refuse to be so.
So are we going to keep frisking old ladies and look away when Middle-Eastern men board planes?
I say we deport them all and we save countless lives.
