Imagine the conversation among the Israeli authorities: Who cares if we get blown up? At least we won’t be discriminating!
“Mofaz: No More Anti-Arab Discrimination at Airport,” from Israel National News (thanks to Romy):
(IsraelNN.com) Transportation Minister Shaul Mofaz will eliminate the criterion of nationality from airport security checks, thus making these checks “less racist” and more Arab-friendly, IDF Radio reported.
In a reply to a High Court petition against supposed anti-Arab discrimination at Ben Gurion Airport, the Transportation Ministry will present a new set of criteria for security checks, which will include age, occupation and military service. It will soon be brought before the Attorney General for review.
A law abiding Arab should not be treated differently from a Jew, Mofaz said. “Why should the Director of the Nahariya Hospital, an Arab Israeli, who saves lives every day, be delayed at the security check more than anyone else?”, Mofaz told IDF Radio.
Certainly. Good point, Mofaz. But if you are planning to pretend that Muslims and Jews are equally likely to commit acts of terror against Israelis, you will be wasting time and resources.
