    Islam: Making a True Difference in the World

    Islam: The Religion of Peace
    (and a big stack of dead bodies)
    That site is using Sectarian Violence as terrorist attacks, so that means every "sectarian" killing that has happened in Northern Ireland (and there are tons and tons of them) can count as Christian Terrorist attacks.

    Re: Is it time to profile on airline flights?

    I'm curious if anyone knows of any studies that look at the effectiveness of racial profiling in preventing or stopping terrorism. Is it even an effective tactic? I've seen studies that suggest it is for other types of crimes, but none about terrorism.

    If you set a man on fire, he'll be warm for the rest of his life.

    It's not going to end in our lifetime, yet there's going to be a winner if we don't do anything about it.

    The parallels in that paragraph are wrong, just saying.

    I am for Profiling but not as an absolute policy. That would lead to the opposite problem, terrorits send a white guy through the line because he wouldn't be scutinized. So search all the middle eastern looking people and randomly everyone else.

    It's not called the American War on Islamic Attacks. It's called the Global War On Terror. Just sayin'.

    Yup, but we need to focus on what affects us......
    The Brits need to focus on what affects them.....
    Fighting over any religious ideology is foolish, IMO....

    I actually agree. What is confusing is that according to some of our defence people - the biggest imminent threat we face is from domestic groups when it comes to terrorism. Anti-abortion groups, environmentalists firebombing labs, fundy christians and the occasional Libertarian with way too much access to guns.

    Yet another example of the levels of incompetence in government......
    There will always be a kook with a cause...
    Assuch, we must remain vigilant at all times....
