    Profiling Muslims. What should be we be looking for?

    Wait until I put up all the options. So which one of these characteristics would you use to profile a Muslim. I made them as wide as possible so that they could be used like say 'racial profiling' would be. You know. Skin color, hair color and eye color. Before you vote take into consideration of some of the different ways Muslims can and do appear :


    This is a Muslim :



    This is a Muslim :



    This is a Muslim :



    This is a Muslim :



    These are Muslims :

    Make sure "We Shouldn't Profile Them" is an option, because I want to choose that one.

    Re: Profiling Muslims. What should be we be looking for?

    Why does it have to have anything to do with race? How about just making sure scrutiny is sufficient for those that come from countries with a history of terrorism and of a religion that has a precedence of fanatics. Is that so terrible?

    Throughout history almost every religion has had fanatics. Including Christianity.

    Muslims are the ones with bombs strapped to themselves. It used to be, according to the Center of Historical Correctness at Hollywood, Russians or people with Slavic accents.

    Or something like that.

    Attack Christianity if you must, but I haven't seen any bombers from them in quite some time.....
    Muslims are far more likely to use IED's, hence they must be profiled.....

    Could you fill in those blanks...

    What is a Muslim mannerism? I don't think a Terrorist is going to be doing much "mannering" while in queue for security.
