Disagree But Don't Muzzle
Chicago Sun-Times
December 15, 2005

Ahmed Rehab ["Discrimination fails us all," letters, Dec. 4] of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), Chicago, attacked Rep. Mark Kirk and the Sun-Times for endorsing Kirk's idea that we can make America safer by profiling people at airports who physically resemble the 19 murderers who killed 3,000 Americans on Sept. 11, 2001. CAIR denounced Kirk's reasonable idea by attempting to silence him and millions of others in our country who want to protect us by alleging anti-Arab discrimination. CAIR knows that whenever the charge of discrimination is leveled against anyone in the United States, that person is supposed to immediately stop expressing his opinion, beg forgiveness from organizations that silence free speech and do penance by reversing himself on the opinion he expressed.

Nobody should ever be silenced for exercising his constitutional right to free speech, and no American should ever cower from expressing opinions about how to better protect his fellow Americans because of groups that falsely accuse him of "discrimination." Let a fair debate on profiling begin, and let all sides have their say.
