No, targeting Muslims is unconstitutional, Islamophobic, and incendiary and would provide ISIS with ammunition to accuse the U.S. of a conspiracy against Islam. 6 years ago from a Green in Deerfield, MA
No, government surveillance of muslim communities send a message to the public that muslims are collectively guilty for acts of terror. This leads to an increase of hate crimes against american muslims because it creates an "us vs. them" dichotomy. this Dichotomy also is counterproductive because it legitimizes the message of radical groups that "the United states is an enemy of islam" because this enemy creation works both ways.
Additionally there is no statistical evidence that proves any correlation with the teachings of islam and propensity to violence. In fact, the majority of terror attacks in the US are carried out by radical right wing groups such as the sovereign citizen movement. Therefore, focusing on muslim communities would divert finite resources from other, more effective means of counterterrorism. 6 years ago from a Green in Watertown, SD
Again-- asking such an imperial question- those who cast the quickest reply are doubtful the most considerate.
Certainly there should be vigilant consideration and factors should be considered which seem to increase the possibility of such occurring. Vilifying an entire religion premised that this is the only threat to the America people is asinine and foolish. It not only justifies those already angry folks who look for a scapegoat but creates a panic for those who are frightened. It causes hysteria. Causes panic. Eliminates long term thinking needed when processing critical consequence. A person can be brilliant, a mob-- not so much. This sort of manipulation brings together folks in that mob mentality. Though, perhaps, a tactic used to steer the herd to rally a cause-- they amassed mob will flail out of control because any sense of order is lost. Panic and disorder fed on itself. Those who can create more fear do. Fighting fire with fire leads only to ash. Hate does not cure, it grows. Calm is the cure. But it may take longer, not 'sell' and is harder to use to divide people when pushing for an objective. 6 years ago from a Green in Lubec, ME
Increase funding for homeland security. 6 years ago from a Green in Westvale, NY
