Sam Harris advocates profiling Muslims
“We should profile Muslims, or anyone who looks like he or she could conceivably be Muslim, and we should be honest about it…. Needless to say, a devout Muslim should be free to show up at the airport dressed like Osama bin Laden, and his wives should be free to wear burqas. But if their goal is simply to travel safely and efficiently, wouldn’t they, too, want a system that notices people like themselves?”
Yeah, right. If you were a terrorist intent on attacking a plane you would obviously show up at the airport dressed like Osama bin Laden, wouldn’t you?
But what else can you expect from a man who has backed Geert Wilders, joined the hysterical campaign against the so-called Ground Zero mosque and claimed that “the people who speak most sensibly about the threat that Islam poses to Europe are actually fascists”?
