Given the Boston Marathon bombers, that is a tough sell.

@Say No,

And 9/11, and the shoe bomber, and the underwear bomber, and the fort hood, and the Portland Christmas Tree event.

They SHOULD face more scrutiny.

I know I sure wish we had scrutinized the Boston bombers and the other terrorists I mentioned more than we did.

@say no and Chris

and the movie theater shootings in Denver and the school shooting in Connecticut and Columbine shootings and the Oklahoma bombings, the guy that crashed his plane into an IRS building, and oh wait those were nice white american christian men.

Let's see - I seem to remember some Constitutional prohibition against things like this - oh, yeah! The First Amendment that was it!

Interesting to see posts from commenters who in other threads are complaint about infringement on their religious freedom supporting infringement of others' rights.

@Sorry Charlie!

What evidence do you have they were nice Christian men?

Their actions clearly demonstrate they were not.

And NONE claimed to have done what did in the name Christianity or GOD.

Muslim terrorists do make a claim in the name their religion and God, and therefore requires a second look.

So do you have any evidence that the people being caught up in this drag net are terrorist? I has as much evidance to support my claims as you have to support this kind of discrimination.

@the truth

So do you have any evidance these people are even Muslim let alone terrorist? Shall we start screening anyone that passes through conn., Colorado, Oklahoma and Texas? After all this is the type of rational for delaying these people,

Just bring in the bombers. Ok most Muslims are good people, but a significant number are radicals. I find it hard to feel good about admitting many from Arab countries.

And discrimination is alive and well on the DesNews comment boards.

Should we actually profile for terrorists or waste our time and resources profiling everyone,

what is more useful?

I suggest we follow EL AL's example and profile for terrorists, they are the safest airlines in the world, even have metal forks and knives on their airline.

and is a white Norwegian Christian or a Muslim more likely to be a terrorist, and cause harm to american citizens, the answer is obvious.

When was last time a non-muslim foreigner committed a terrorist act in the US?

Do the obvious and common sense thing.

Political correctness came from communism, to enforce politically correct (communist) thought. It is no good, we must eschew it.
