This Is What A Terrorist Looks Like

According to a new poll, a pretty significant number of people in the U.S. support racial profiling at airports. Of the 1,080 surveyed, 60 percent said authorities should single out people who look "Middle Eastern" for security screenings at such locations as train stations and airports.

I can clearly understand that. It's not like a white person has ever committed an act of terrorism in the United States.

Except for this one.

And this one. And this one. And this one.

Not forgetting this one. And this one. And this one. And this one. And this one.

And also this one. And this one. And this one. And this one.

As well as these ones. And these ones. And these ones. And these ones.

In the words of Chris Rock, I'm not afraid of al-Qaeda. I'm afraid of Al Cracker.

Update: How could I forget these guys?

Glad you pointed this out Kevin

Here in Oklahoma a lot of people jumped to conclusions before they arrested McVeigh...one Oklahoma City Muslim woman even suffered a miscarriage from the trauma of the discrimination (an angry group of people had gathered outside her home).

Here's a link describing the media's reaction after the OKC bombing:

And didn't it come out a while back that terrorist groups were looking to recruit white/European-looking people?

How does the Boston Tea Party qualify as terrorist? No lives were lost, just property. Steps were taken to make sure that civilians were not harmed. That's no more "terrorist" than Jesus' direct action in the Temple or Greenpeace's drilling of wholes in whaling vessels.

Even guerilla war isn't terrorist if restricted to military targets.

I'm against all violence, but we muddy issues if anything that "disturbs the peace" is considered terrorist. The ruling authorities would love such a definition.

 

Blogger Dan Trabue said ... (8/31/2006 06:32:00 AM) : 

I'm with Michael. The Boston Tea Party may be a good model for non-violent Civil disobedience. And maybe even as evidence that the Revolutionary War could have been fought in non-violent ways to gain our freedom, thus raising questions about the Myth of Necessary War.

I think I might agree with you, Dan and Michael. But I'm pretty sure if something similar happened today, it would be labeled terrorism, especially if the people doing the destruction happened to have brown skin or a liberal ideology. After all, do "eco-terrorists" actually kill people, or do they just destroy equipment to prevent logging? And even

Yes, you're right, it would most likely be labelled terrorism. We value our stuff pretty much and when our stuff gets hurt, well, doggone it, it hurts us! If you hurt my SUV, it's kinda like hurting my child...

It is true that I would love to simply identify all middle eastern looking people as suspect for bombings. Then I remember the numerous friends I have who are middle eastern. They are just like me in my values, likes, dislikes, ambitions etc. I realize this is not the right way to go about securing our safety.
Then I try on Muslim, and that doesn't work either. There are more Muslims on earth than Christians, and they are not all blowing up the world. Again, I have Muslim friends, too, who follow a religion they know without become extreme about it. Knowing them as I do I know they are not secret operatives awaiting the push of a button to turn them into automatons of mass murder.

I go on and on, and there is no simple way to identify people or groups as possible terrorists.
This is what the authorities have to deal with as well. That is why we need experts who study terrorism, identify potential terrorists and track them. Hopefully, they have more successes than failures, but there will also be failures. It is not a finite science.

We have to be patient, follow what is being done, voice our concerns, weigh in with our appointed leaders and work to shape our world this way.

We need to be Americans in every sense of the word.

I feel sometimes as though people don't live in reality. I am Canadian and we have the same problems in Canada as you have in the US, denial. I was reading the news paper the day after the 4th of July 2006 and there was a write up about a "National Socialist Movement A NEO NAZI GROUP" were having a march in Olympia the state capital city center, not far down the page there was another write up about the risk of terror. I am biracial or as the God fearing christian Neo Nazi would call me a Mudd Person. I have read into to some of the sites they have and they have put hits out on people like myself because of they color of my skin.
I am sick an tired of people talking as though we the people are so pure and good yet mothers kill thier children, men molest children and receive only a couple years in jail.
The people need to stand up and say what is right and wrong rather then sitting there and taking it so easily, who cares about the color our skin what ever shade or religion we are, I am just sick and tired of people not being aware of all the wrong that is going on around them yet have an opinion on a certain group because the government and the media and pounding it in to our head every single day of our lives. Think independent don't be a follower and stand up for all you believe in.

Well, let's face facts. If I'm looking for someone involved in a drive by shooting..most of the time I'm going to be looking at black males between the ages of 15-25. If I'm looking for someone who shoplifted makeup, I'll most likely be looking for a white female between 13-20, and if I'm looking for someone who bombed a city bus, Im looking for an arab male, 16-35.

Racial profiling works, whether it offends our pathetic delicate sensitivities or not. Is it always right? No, as that coward McVeigh shows, but, as you lefties love to say.....if even one life is saved, its worth it.

From what i understand, if you go to someone else's country and perform an act that causes bodily injury or death you are a terrorist. If you do it in your own country, you're simply a revolutionary.

OK- I'm with you on the list of white-terrorists.... but, you went a little over-board with the Boston Tea Party. I'm hoping you did in fact pass 4th grade History/Social Studies, but it doesn't appear as though you have. Sadly, in today's society when one over-exaggerates the way you did with the BTP, it tends to negate anything else you've said. It labels your thought as a "fit of histerics". Too bad, up until the "update" you had a pretty good point.

Oh, the bad white man is at it again. Everyone knows that all we do is hate and discriminate. We all wake up in the morning and ask ourselves, "How can I be a racist today?" (I'm hoping most readers are smart enough to sense the sarcasm.) The term "racial profiling" is just a smokescreen. What we ought to be doing is "terrorist profiling". Yes, the Unabomber was a white guy. I get it. But the bombing of the USS Cole,the first WTC attacks, the Spanish train bombings and 9/11, just to name a few, were acts committed by people of a certain race, age, and religion. (By the way, there's quite a bit of evidence suggesting that Timmothy McVeigh was working with Arab Muslim terrorists from...you guessed it...Iraq.) For you lefties out there, I did NOT just say that all Arabs and muslims are terrorists. I also did NOT just say that white guys can't be terrorists. What I am saying is that if your job is to thwart terrorism, then you need to address the PATTERN that presents itself. When a meteorologist makes a forecast, he looks at the current weather pattern and compares it to similar patterns in history to make an accurate prediction. It's simply using the information at hand in order to thin out the hay bale to make the needle a little easier to find. Of course it is possible to be wrong, but I'd rather be wrong once in a while using all of the information available than to blind myself to obvious patterns.

Terrorism:

-The systematic use of terror, the deliberate creation and exploitation of fear for bringing about political change

-is defined by the US Department of Defense as "the unlawful use of -- or threatened use of -- force or violence against individuals or property to coerce or intimidate governments or societies, often to achieve political, religious, or ideological objectives."

-Any act including, but not limited to, the use of force or violence and/or threat thereof of any person or group(s) of persons whether acting alone or on behalf of, or in connection with, any organisation(s) or government(s) committed for political, religions, ideological or similar purposes, including the intention to influence any government and/or to put the public or any section of the public in fear.

-a violent act in violation of the criminal laws of the United States, which is intended to intimidate or influence the policy of a government.

I agree... I often wondered, even before 9/11/01 if we had no terrorists in the USA. Because on the news other countries reported of terrorist groups, as those in Spain and in Russia. It was months after 9/11/01 that I realized, when I questioned myself, what about the the American people that kill other American people; regardless of race; are they not terrorists? It is sad to realize we too have our own problem; and I am always worried about what the future will be like... because I have a son and I worry for his safety.

Who came up with this list?

The Columbine kids do not fit the definition of "Terrorist". These kids weren't out to achieve a political motive, they were just a bunch of screwed up kids looking to take out a few "friends" before commmitting suicide.

The only thing that we see from this blog post is that whites are terrorists too. What about these groups:
Jewish Defense League (Israeli)
PLO/PKO (Palestinian)
IRA
SIMI (India)
Finally, how about the rebels in Chechnya or Abu Sayyaf of the Philippines? Oops, I almost forgot they're Muslim groups also...

Like it or not, the fact remains, the vast majority of terrorist groups, religous or otherwise, are Muslim in origin.

All though most terrorists are of muslim origin it is very hard to to differenciate them from most asians/europeans/african. A north african could easily make himself look more like a south african/african american to blend in. the same goes from most pakistanis and seperating them from indians. etc etc so you will have to persecute everone who isn't white.

Although the boston tea party was a hilarious example (in my opinion), I don't count it as a terrorist act, even if in todays society it would be considered one. Yes Whites can be terrorists but the well known faces are people of Middle East descent. You can thank the media for that. Americans that feel uneasy on a plane when seated next to an Arab, aren't neccesarily racist or horrible people. We are told that generally those are the people responsible for terrorist acts and everyday we are bombarded with images of the war in Iraq with more and more violence from Iraqi's who are against America. So yes Americans support racial profiling in airports. I myself am not a racist but if I am going through security at an airport with an Arab and a 60 year old grandma behind me, you better believe I am praying the Arab is getting searched with extra scrutiny. Racist or not. That is how America is now.

The airports and train stations cannot single out a certain race because of this thing called the 14th amendment.

Section 1. All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the state wherein they reside. No state shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any state deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.

What they should do is look for citizenship. If someone is a citizen, let them go, if not, do the full search.

I think we should take a cue from Israel
here (for once). Israel probably has more
experience with terrorism than anybody
else on the planet, and Israeli officials
have CLEARLY STATED that racial profiling
DOES NOT WORK. They don't use it on El-Al.
They go for a sophisticated system of
behavioral profiling and intensive
screening.

Americans are always trying to find the
easy way out, and that's why we keep
finding ourselves deeper in trouble. I
wish that survey also indicated the race
of each of the respondents--I think the
results shouldn't even be allowed to be
published without this complementary
information. I am willing to bet my every
civil liberty that the only reason so many
of these people want racial profiling is
because they know they wouldn't be
affected by it. It would always be someone
else's daily hassle. It's characteristic
selfish claptrap, and not very surprising
in this SUV-driving, reality-show-watching, uneducated, attention-span-of-a-gnat culture we have constructed.

And no, I am not moving somewhere else,
so don't even suggest it. America is my
home, and I want my fellow countrymen to
grow up for a change before this "grand
experiment" eats itself alive.

Terrorism, I would classify as oh, I dont know, anything that brings terror? Be that crashing into a building, or robbing a bank. Dont you think that if you were in a bank and someone shoved a gun in your face you would be terrified? It may not be to the extent of an event such as 9/11, but its still traumatic to those involved. People profile because of the media. And the reason the author stated whites is because, latly, do you do you hear alot about someone who is white doing something wrong? It seems all thats on the news these days is the mid-eastern conflicts. So thats what Americans classify as terrorism. We here in America dont seem to get that life happens outside of the TV screen.

In most cases I have to agree that racial profiling is wrong. The problem is the most effective bombers are those that are willing to die for their causes. The only ones who really have that dedication and beliefs seem to be those in the middle-eastern religions. Even those in groups like the KKK and other hate groups don't have the balls to get on a plane (or other mass transport) knowing full well they are going to die just to make a statement for their cause. How's your faith? You willing to do that just to make a statement?

Does it justify racial profiling... since mass transport seems to be one of their biggest targets right now I hate to say it.... but yes it does justify it. On the same breath though... I am in the US... the US does state no descrimination... and racial profiling is seriously descriminating.... so now what? I dont have an answer for that one :(

Probably just best to add some additional cost to transportation and actually spend it on screening everyone (someone needs to stand over top of the airlines, bus systems, etc... and seriously audit that cost too just to be sure it is not going into the profit statement).

While there are terrorists that are American or white, the organized terrorist groups with training camps, flight training, and cells of 3-5 members are not. We cannot possibly expect to prevent every terrorist act with the new security measures in place, but they are there to prevent another highly coordinated, planned, well-funded attack on American soil. Terrorism has achieved it's goal of making us fearful in our homeland. We should profile for security, but that doesn't mean that we shouldn't, as citizens and Americans, still treat them with respect. The large scale terrorists we are screening for in airports & train stations are all middle eastern, but not all middle eastern men or women are terrorists.
Let's face reality - when faced with any crime, criminologists start by "profiling" the criminal. It works for the criminal they are looking for in mass transit terminals, by profiling middle eastern men. I hope that readers can appreciate that I am racist, and being a supporter of profiling doesn't indicate that. I'm not suggesting internment camps, just focused screenings. I've seen a group of marines be subject to screenings while arabs were largely ignored. That is when the system has gone wrong.

Yes, yes... very Swiftian.
But heres an inconvenient fact, You didn't show any white airline, train or bus related terrorists. (I'm sure there must be that D.B. cooper sketch on wiki)
Unfortunately, there isn't enough space in your article to run links to images of actual middle eastern, far eastern, east asian, south east asian, chechen, south american, and sub saharan hijackers, air bombers, train bombers, bus bombers,
roadside bombers, homicide bombers.

Like it or not, Unibombers and anti abortion whackos aren't the reason you have to dump your Evian, and grandma's denture cream before boarding a plane.

Sorry, but Youre not taking off your shoes because of the KKK or even the IRA.

And for the record, theres even (more than a little) evidence that McVeigh and Nichols had a third accomplice-
and he wasn't white and midwestern.

Sure humanity is a sack of bastards no matter what the race, and TSA handles every crisis like a purely reactive circle jerk.
Check out the growing ranks of the 'No Fly list' club that are under 12 years old.

Trust me, if El Al handled all airline/train security, more than a few white guys would still get the shakedown.
But you know what?
"The religion of peace" would have to seriously rethink, maybe even write off a whole method of stating their case.
Ah well, theres always smuggled nukes, right?

Unfortunately, there isn't enough space in your article to run links to images of actual middle eastern, far eastern, east asian, south east asian, chechen, south american, and sub saharan hijackers, air bombers, train bombers, bus bombers,
roadside bombers, homicide bombers.

Like it or not, Unibombers and anti abortion whackos aren't the reason you have to dump your Evian, and grandma's denture cream before boarding a plane.

Sorry, but Youre not taking off your shoes because of the KKK or even the IRA.

And for the record, theres even (more than a little) evidence that McVeigh and Nichols had a third accomplice-
and he wasn't white and midwestern.

Sure humanity is a sack of bastards no matter what the race, and TSA handles every crisis like a purely reactive circle jerk.
Check out the growing ranks of the 'No Fly list' club that are under 12 years old.

Trust me, if El Al handled all airline/train security, more than a few white guys would still get the shakedown.
But you know what?
"The religion of peace" would have to seriously rethink, maybe even write off a whole method of stating their case.
Ah well, theres always smuggled nukes, right?

Of coarse there are people of all races that commit terrorist acts for what ever reason, but let’s think about through logic. Logic tells us that there are a lot more white people than middle eastern at least in the States and in Europe. Now if we take the ratio of middle eastern individuals who commit acts of terror (like the ones in who recently got busted in Germany and the U.K.)compared to white individuals, well your statement is now a fallacy. I’m not afraid of Al Cracker I’m afraid of Al Dumbo!

How can you compare McVeigh to the other terrorist. There are a lot of disgruntled americans but I wouldn't compare them to Al Qaida. That is utter stupidity. The islamics breed future bombers in their arabic schools. They start the brainwashing at a young age that there is no greater cause than sacrificing your life for Allah. They are breeding them every day and they are people of 99.9% middle eastern descent. You can have those stupid thoughts that europeans pose a real threat but in the real world the threat from islamics is far greater. Take some anti-stupidity pills and chill out.

Interesting post. Thanks for that. More interesting is the anonymous knuckle-dragging ridicule your post spawned. If you manage to change even one person's perspective, then I believe we've all won the "war on terror".

thank you, wj. i completely agree with brian, who posted just before me. well done.

of course, the wrath of the american "public" will always attack such logical arguments, rooted as it has been since its inception in denial. it could never look honestly in the mirror and continue centuries of 'business as usual'.

...but, of course the modern corporate media continues to feed and tend that trough... but that's another story.
