You are going in a more PC direction than I am. The point is that modern day international terrorists are almost all Arab, South Asian, North African. So of course if Terrorists hijack a plane somewhere in Europe or America you are going to focus the investigation on the people that have links to those parts of world.
The terrorist "can" be anybody, but in all probability it won't be your gay German Barber. It''ll probably be a Muhammed Hassan, or Ahmed Hussien. Of course it'll be a slippery slope to screen them by race, but it is worth it if it saves the lives of scores of innocent people.
i share your view on this one.
the consipritors can make up all the hypothesis they want, but one needs to follow the evidence.
it's all about idealogies.
not which one is better in general, but which one is better for you & your interests.
Think very hard about any activity that you do on any day, the end consumer of those thoughts/actions/feelings is YOU.
forget trying to find this peaceful sorry state of existence, there will always be conflict.
will you leave your child hungry to feed someone else?
the answer to most rational ppl not in denail is NO, so leave your peaceful state of affairs to the sixth grade class that taught you tolerance.
choose your side and make sure it wins.
everything else is as already mentioned "intellectual masturbation".
