    Not saying that being Muslim is a terrorist act, but the simple fact is, being Muslim is a red flag when it is coupled with unusual acts that have terrorist potential.

    How can one tell who is Muslim?

    FYI: There are alot of White converts who are Muslim. No doubt they would be overlooked ... :/

    I pity the poor bastard that tries to hijack a plane with a box cutter again. And i get how it works...draw a little stewardess blood...psychological warfare...etc...I just dont think it will have the same impact. I think someone would be headed for a good old fashioned Southwestern Airlines style beatdown.

    Not.

    My bet was whether one would have Abdul or Hussein in his name. Lost both.

    .
    Ok I laughed out loud

    Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.

    Just sayin' that being Muslim is just a small variable in a long equation which coupled with other variables such as circumstance, can have exponential results (ie Muslim trying to buy 100 tons of ammonium nitrate vs farmer trying to buy 100 tons of ammonium nitrate).

    Lol.
    If they were intelligent, those Muslims would buy the nitrate from the farmer. Then what?

    I think they should try them, and if they are found guilty they should execute them as if they had actually carried this out and pulled it off.

    The reply button is slow as ****....

    If they are blond, blue-eyed Bosnians who don't have an Islamic name and deny being Muslim (assuming it is ever asked), then the "Muslim red flag" won't go up. If the background check turns up the religious background connection, then in addition to the Muslim red flag, you might be able to add "hiding your identity", depending on whether there was any deception involved.

    So then that fails

    If Al Qaeda wanted to hit something. It seems common sense now on what to do if the West is racial profiling Muslims. Pick the most obscure converts to Islam. White people always get past security easier than Arabs or Blacks so its a score on both fronts.
    They can be told to deny ever being a Muslim, wear "Western" clothes. Maybe a push up bra and heels if it is a chick. Then success.

    When will people realise Muslims are so diverse

    Well, there are some really good intelligent ones out there...no doubt.

    The fact that Muslim terrorists have attempted or successfully completed terrorist acts by setting off truck bombs in basements, hijacked aircraft with box cutters, hidden bombs in shoes, attempted to board aircraft with bomb making materials consisting of binary explosives, rammed ships with explosive laden boats means some high level of intelligence

    I'll give them credit for innovation.
