Of course profiling is ethical. What is the question? Is it unethical to pull aside an individual about to go on a place for ten minutes to search him because he fits the profile of someone who blows up planes? Really we should be asking is it ethical not to. Yes, I understand it may feel uncomfortable for an innocent person who fits a certain profile to get pulled over often, but that is one person. What about the hundreds or thousands that we are trying to save? I will say that any act of security based on profiling must be done with respect and courtesy. Profiling should not equal hate.

Racial profiling is a result of our personal responsibility to one another. In some ways it is not fair, in some ways it is very fair. When a part of our society behaves in a certain way it reflects on all of us (positively or negatively). In the IDF there used to be a rule that red-cross and medical services could pass through check points unchecked. Than terrorists used ambulances to smuggle bombs over the borders. Now all ambulances are checked. This is a classic example where the cynical abuse of the few effects the many. But the many were not strong enough to stop the behavior of these few, so in many ways it is fair.
When a certain group of people do something as horrific as September 11 it casts a huge cloud over all their community.

Unfortunately, most airplane hijackings or other terrorist acts have been committed by Arabs/Moslems and therefore they are suspect. But we in Israel know only too well that disguises are used as well, so everyone should be at least eyeballed. When we traveled as a family we were still checked out-I had a fractured elbow and a sling and my sling was checked out to make sure I didn't have something hidden in it (this was in Seattle)! But many make the mistake that being their friend will help, but no suicide bomber has asked first for political affiliation before detonating.

Is the sin not also in the opportunism displayed?
ethnical profiling is something people do because of FEAR; people rationalize it by saying its history, its current politics; even suggested here: there's a karmic element ...
but is the issue not also in the opportunistic behavior displayed? should you befriend someone at an airport to just abandon them when the issue is resolved; whether its work; play; or relationship? this small segment is not a flattering look at jewish life, in my opinion, its egotistical self-serving behavior that is not peace-minded in its intention. Its seeking false approval.
Does this qualify for the same status as a mitzvah performed with all the right intentions?
