Adults Across the Pond
Perhaps Great Britain gets it.
THE Government is discussing with airport operators plans to introduce a screening system that allows security staff to focus on those passengers who pose the greatest risk.
The passenger-profiling technique involves selecting people who are behaving suspiciously, have an unusual travel pattern or, most controversially, have a certain ethnic or religious background.
The system would be much more sophisticated than simply picking out young men of Asian appearance. But it would cause outrage in the Muslim community because its members would be far more likely to be selected for extra checks.
...and, they would find it much more difficult to blow up planes.
Officials at the Department for Transport (DfT) have discussed the practicalities of introducing such a system with airport operators, including BAA. They believe that it would be more effective at identifying potential terrorists than the existing random searches.
Well I guess so! But don't expect this kind of common sense to spring up here anytime soon.
I think it's a great idea to make the so-called moderate Muslims feel the pinch. It is after all these moderates that justify the actions of the homicidal lunatics that share their faith. It's the moderate Muslims throughout the world that tolerate the Sharia Sham and the Jihad Johnnies... and criticize us in a de facto passive aggressive assault on the West. Let the Muslim moderates live with the fruits of their tolerance and inaction.
