The article went about pointing out two cases where an airline bomber (or potential bomber) was not an Arab or a Muslim (although in the woman's case I believe she was either dating or married to a Muslim -- and he had planted the bomb in her luggage) to show us why we shouldn't profile. This is like pointing out the few rare instances in which seatbelts have actually cost lives and saying we shouldn't wear seatbelts.
Note the common element in these stories. In no case was the carrier of the bomb an Arab or a Muslim.Question: Did they, or did they not profile this woman?
They thought it curious that the pregnant woman, a hotel maid, would be flying alone to Israel.This is called "profiling".
Followup, since the answer to the first question is "yes" -- and they found the explosives, just how is this an example of profiling not working?
As some bean-brain said on Fox, "Christians are not blowing up airplanes." But they have ... some wittingly, some without knowing."Bean brain" on Fox, eh? Nope, no bias there at all. The fact remains that statistically, it's Muslims, and the margin is enormous to the point of making all others negligible. So make the Christians aware of Muslim Extremist trickery, and focus on the Muslim Extremists. The "Bean Brain" is right. This line of thinking intellectualizes one into self-imposed idiocy.
Newsflash: Nothing can Ensure Airline Security. But certain things can go a long way toward minimzing risk.
