Passenger profiling risks damaging counter terrorism efforts

Good grief. Here‘s a press release from the Quilliam Foundation we can mostly agree with. True, you have to put up with the predictable Quilliam assertion that “governments must engage in a ‘battle of ideas’ to combat the Islamist ideologies which justify terrorism” – which, translated, means the government giving Ed Husain and his mates lots of money to denounce Islamist tendencies who have nothing whatsoever to do with al-Qaeda and who repudiate its methods. However, Quillam does at least take the right line on the actual issue of profiling. Which is more than others do.
