We can toss the luggage of every Muslim family from now til doomsday but that isn't going to stop the guy that looks like our next door neighbor from sashaying aboard a plane with a bomb strapped to himself.

That is why this suicide bomber can't be considered a terrorist. It removes our illusion of safety, that they are going to search all them Muslims real good, and that makes it too terrifying for people to think about. Just calling him a suicide bomber, which he is, is too much for some.

1. They can expect more of the homegrown crazies
since some are hailing him as a hero. Homegrown crazies who look just like them. The horror of it all.

2. muslim isn't a race.
"e can toss the luggage of every Muslim family from now til doomsday"

Including the blond, blue eyed ones, the black ones and the japanese ones and it would be racial profiling?

unreced for ignorance.
