There is anger at official racial and religious profiling
The United States Immigration and Naturalisation Service (INS) is starting to register people from selected Arab and Muslim countries on arrival into the country.
Under the new policy, immigration staff will routinely fingerprint, photograph and question potential entrants, checking their pictures and prints against criminal and terrorist databases.
The US Justice Department has also issued a directive that anyone who has frequently visited the Middle East, North Africa, Cuba or North Korea can be taken aside too, if they do not have what it calls a credible explanation for their trip.
The policy is aimed at preventing a repeat of the security lapses which allowed the 11 September hijackers to live undetected in the US for so long.
Shame that the "Muslim world" is so offended at being subjected to increased scrutiny when entering the United States. Personally, when I consider that terrorism has been a Muslim thing for the past 30 years, I'm glad.
