    I picked other.American Muslims should not be under any extra scrutiny. But everyone who is not American citizen coming into the US should be under extra scrutiny. Non-citizens should not be allowed to freely coming into the US with no background and health checks.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    I don't support the idea of racial profiling of anyone for being Muslim.

    I also am bitterly opposed to bigotry, and i am worried that attacks like the one on Charlie Hebdo fuel feelings of islamophobia.
    I think you are correct, sir . I'd say that Islamaphobia has existed for a time, and now it is worse to much worse in Europe and America ..I feel that Islam can do a lot more than they have to rectify the situation. We (our government) can as well , its basic respect, which I do not believe Islam has ever received ..

    Many liberals want to make it a criminal offense to say anything negative about the religion of Islam.

    My message is definitely as accurate as your's.

    Most terrorism and violence against Americans in America comes from other Americans, not foreigners.

    I think our best course of action would be to learn about the reality of our situation, rather than just look for scapegoats.

    Re: Should the United States implement racial profiling of Muslim-Americans?

    I believe we should profile many different sociocultural, political, religious, and/or racial groups, including Canadians, fat people, Scientologists, the producers of Live Free Die Hard, residents of New Jersey, people with both pronounced dimples and a cleft chin, card-carrying members of the Choctaw Native American tribe (the other tribes are okay), Argonians, the French, writers on Tosh.0, Orthodox Jews, Twilight fans, Nigerian investment bankers, Google employees, people who say rubbish instead of garbage, mimes, Vorcha, members of the www.debatepolitics.com political forum, talk show hosts, Oompa Loompas, and certain breeds of house cat. If you don't think house cats are technically a race, it's because you are a bigoted specist scumbag, who has nothing but your own prejudice and hatred to bring to this debate, and we're better off without you here.

    But no, not Muslims. I don't have a memorable dispute with any individual Muslim (yet), so they aren't on my list of untrustworthy groups.

    ...Also, how the hell do you racially profile a religion?

    Religion alone is not enough to profile anyone on.

    Not the question. Should people have to 'cede rights' because other people misbehave?

    Good question.

    Also, you left off your list redheads and lefthanders.

    no of course not lol

    should we limit the rights of any group based on the bad actions of one or many of that group? of course not unless we no longer want to be a free country with any rights at all
