36. What I am saying, though, is that if she had been profiled in the ILLEGAL fashion,
she wouldn't have had any trouble.

I am not necessarily advocating for profiling, so please don't start getting on my case--but let's be honest, here.

On the basis of her age, her gender, her infirmity, her travel, work and marital history, even her ethnicity, the odds are very, very good that she is not a terrorist.

Of course, you're not allowed to consider many of those 'protected' things when profiling a person. However, if you're interviewing her and doing an advanced screening, much of that information is available to the questioner.

If she were well and truly "profiled"--in the Israeli sense of the word--she would have whipped through that checkpoint like greased lightning.
