I do not think all American Moslems should be under surveillance. However, a greater percentage of them should be than say, Quakers. It is a fact that the majority of terrorists are Moslems. This is like "racial profiling", nonsense. It is a fact that Negroes commit crime at about ten times the rate Caucasians do. Should we not arrest 90% of Black criminals to equalize Black and White incarceration rates? Enough.

George, do you have any evidence that "Moslems" commit more crimes than those of other religious sects in the US?

"It is a fact that the majority of terrorists are Moslems."

............. hmmm counting such as Mcveigh, Hinckely, Oswald, abortion clinic terrorists and those burning black churches? Do you advocate profiling by physical characteristics? Surnames? or tattooing "them?"

"This is like "racial profiling", nonsense. It is a fact that Negroes commit crime at about ten times the rate Caucasians do. Should we not arrest 90% of Black criminals to equalize Black and White incarceration rates? Enough."

........ hmmm there are about as many "whites" in prison as "blacks", one thing they appear to share in common is a functional illiteracy rate of 70% in a nation that claims a literacy rate in the high 90's.

Since black demographics are very different from whites have you checked to see whether blacks of similar circumstances as whites are still more likely to be imprisoned? There are some very interesting numbers for you to look over, including that of black arrestees being far more likely to go to prison than a white arrestee, and for much longer terms.

Perhaps, if, crime reduction is your goal, you're time would be better spent "watching" illiterates. Better yet would be to get rid of the prejudicial practice of underfunding schools in the "left behind" areas.

BTW we lock up ALL of our citizens at rates of five and ten times that of the civilized nations, but still have higher crime rates and FAR higher rates of gun slaughter.
