TOO BAD. Don’t be surprised if one day Muslims won’t be allowed on any plane into or out of the United States. Except if they’re leaving for good.
Enhanced screening procedures for U.S.-bound air passengers traveling through “state sponsors of terrorism or other countries of interest” such as Pakistan, Yemen and Nigeria amount to religious profiling of Muslims, the (terrorist front group) Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) said Monday. The Transportation Security Administration announced the strengthened security steps Sunday, saying that “effective aviation security must begin beyond our borders.”
The new guidelines target 13 Muslim-majority nations and will “disproportionately target American Muslims who have family or spiritual ties to the Islamic world,” the Council on American-Islamic Relations said, adding that the tougher measures “amount to religious and ethnic profiling.” (AS THEY SHOULD)
“Under these new guidelines, almost every American Muslim who travels to see family or friends or goes on pilgrimage to Mecca will automatically be singled out for special security checks — that’s profiling,”(EXCELLENT!) said Nihad Awad (HEZBOLLAH promoter), council’s national executive director. “While singling out travelers based on religion and national origin may make some people feel safer, it only serves to alienate and stigmatize Muslims (That’s the idea) and does nothing to improve airline security.”
A TSA spokesperson, Kristin Lee, responded that “TSA does not profile.”
Awad said the suspicious behavior of AbdulMutallab in the failed Christmas bombing case, rather than his religion or ethnicity, should have alerted authorities. Improved monitoring of such anomalies is the solution, said Awad, who called for increased spending “to obtain more bomb-sniffing dogs, (But Muslims would never allow a dog to sniff them) to install more sophisticated bomb-detection equipment and to train security personnel in identifying the behavior suspects.” (The behavior to watch is Muslim behavior) CNN
