I did not introduce any ideas of racial profiling or religious profiling. Please take another look and see if that was an assumption or something I maybe did not make very clear. I was responding to the profiling method that others have brought up in this thread. In actuality racial profiling, in the standard term that we use, is not the method that Israel employs to profile, I am not sure where in my remarks you are reading that?
I am sorry you did not appreciate my mentioning my social, religious and educational background, but I believe it adds to the conversation rather than detracting from it. I have afterall gotten to see both sides of the proverbial coin. I can’t imagine mentioning I am an Arab American Muslim that has studied terror is inflammatory.
I can certainly provide more references to how the intimidation factor in the Israeli Model is part of the psychological profile layered into their security policy, and I DID mention that armed guards in full view on flights is one of those layers. But even then I cannot understand how that is an inflammatory remark, especially in regards to what else has been said in this thread. In fact I think i have been less inflammatory in comparing policies than other posters have been in referring to the US policy.
