The New Congress's Anti Profiling Agenda

Robert Spencer discusses the foolish idea of Democrats that sensible, lawful profiling is somehow racist. (The new Congress is putting Keith Ellison, America's first Muslim Congressman, on the Judiciary.

[2] Mohammed Yousuf Mullawala, a Muslim citizen of India, is the subject of a continuing investigation in Rhode Island after enrolling in a truck driving school, inquiring about getting a permit to carry hazardous materials, and telling instructors that he did not need to learn how to back up. Also, Rhode Island State Police Major Steven O'Donnell revealed that "we've tied some of his cell-phone records to people of interest nationally" —that is, people who are suspected of terrorist activity. "They're not your typical person's cell-phone history ... the volume of contacts obviously raises the level of suspicion." [...]

[3] Imam Fawaz Damra, the former leader of the largest mosque in Cleveland, was deported to the West Bank last Thursday. When he arrived, Israeli authorities promptly arrested him for his ties to the terrorist group Palestinian Islamic Jihad. His failure to disclose those ties got him deported in the first place. He was also captured on videotape telling an Islamic audience that "the first principle is that terrorism, and terrorism alone, is the path to liberation.... If what they mean by jihad is terrorism, then we are terrorists" — despite having been a signer of the Fiqh Council of North America's much lionized condemnation of terrorism.

[4] On Monday, a Pakistani Muslim, Shahawar Matin Siraj, was sentenced to thirty years in prison for his plan to blow up a Manhattan subway station.

[5] Last Friday in Palm Springs, a man named Haider Mohammad, who claimed to be an Al-Qaeda operative, was arrested in a bar after threatening to "kill all Jews."[The Anti-Profiling Agenda | January 12, 2007]

As I've noted before, there have been literally hundreds of foreigners prosecuted, deported and imprisoned on terrorist charges since 9/11, yet the media and Congress act like there's not a serious infiltration problem brought on by permissive immigration laws and open borders.
