Religious Profiling

In a hard-hitting column in the Daily Beast, Airport Security: Let’s Profile Muslims, Asra Q. Nomani wrote:

We have to talk about the taboo topic of profiling because terrorism experts are increasingly recognizing that religious ideology makes terrorist organizations and terrorists more likely to commit heinous crimes against civilians, such as blowing an airliner out of the sky. Certainly, it’s not an easy or comfortable conversation but it’s one, I believe, we must have.

Ms. Nomani's column echoes my views expressed on this subject in an article that I wrote in the immediate aftermath of the failed terror attack on Glasgow airport.
