It’s foolishness not to use profiles when you know that most terrorists come from certain ethnic groups and certain age groups. A bomber on a plane is likely to be Muslim and young, not an elderly Holocaust survivor. We’re talking about preventing a lot of casualties, and that justifies inconveniencing a certain ethnic group.
—Ariel Merari, an Israeli terrorism expert who has written about aviation security.
Sadly, the only country in the world that knows how it’s done and does it right is being subject to a lawsuit challenge profiling of Arabs and Muslims in the Israeli Supreme Court, notoriously liberal and idiotic for its suicidal decisions.
Yup, time to start doing what we do here and frisking the little old lady who survived Auschwitz, right? That’ll make us safer. Uh-huh.
