Finally someone with some unexpected common sense. Muslim woman and author, Asra Q. Nomani displays an incredible breath of fresh air with her logic and honesty while being an interview guest on CNN.
In response to the moderators question concerning security and profiling she says, “I am Muslim, I am brown, my father has the name Mohommad in his name and i do say profile me. Profile my family….In 1998, Osama Bin Ladin issued a fatwa that said airliners and airports are legitimate targets for good Muslims. And since then we’ve had Glasgow, we’ve had London, we’ve had JFK and we’ve had LAX…all of these have been airport plots and we’ve had airline attack attempts. So what is the one common denominator among those who are targeting airports and airlines? Unfortunately, and very sadly to me, they are Muslims. We have to acknowledge this and be honest about our threat assessment because ultimately common sense is what i think should prevail- not political correctness….I honestly believe you can be discriminating without being discriminatory.”
